Quantifying IR fluorescent viral antigens faster and more accurately

15th May 2014

Syngene’s G:BOX Chemi XX6 is being used by scientists at the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, for multiplex imaging of IR fluorescent viral proteins on Western blots. This is contributing to rapidly providing researchers there with accurate information on the efficacy of hepatitis B and hepatitis C DNA vaccines.

Researchers in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Karolinska Institutet are using a G:BOX Chemi XX6 multi-application imager to analyse viral antigens on multiplex infrared (IR) fluorescent Western blots.

Since IR fluorescence is directly proportional to the amount of antigens present on Western blots, this is allowing scientists there to accurately quantify the amount of viral antigen being expressed, and is helping them to determine the efficacy of different types of hepatitis B and C DNA vaccines to be tested in in-vivo mouse models.
