Alhydrogel Interference in Immunoassays

Troubleshooting immunoassays for adjuvanted vaccine products The safety record, affordability, and compatibility of aluminum to many antigens makes them a primary choice of adjuvant. Aluminum adjuvant compounds (such as aluminum hydroxide (Al(OH)3) and aluminum phosphate (AlPO4)) help maintain the physical and chemical characteristics of antigens and increase their repository effect…

Virus-like Particles: Tools for your infectious disease research

Virus-like particles (VLPs) are non-infectious nanoparticles that assemble from recombinantly expressed viral proteins but lack the viral genome required for replication and infection. Because they are non-infectious VLPs do not require the same level of biosafety containment as competent native viruses but retain the self-assembling and antigen presenting capabilities that…
