High-throughput viral antibody discovery service.
The collection of viruses found to infect humans (“the human virome”) can have profound effects on health. In addition to directly causing acute or chronic illness, viral infection can alter host immunity in more subtle ways, leaving an indelible footprint on the immune system.
ANTYGEN™ VirScan™ service, co-developed by CDI’s Scientific Advisory Board Member Ben Larman, provides an unparalleled way to assay a patient’s viral history by comprehensively analyzing antiviral antibodies to a phage library displaying peptides from >1300 strains of viruses — nearly every virus annotated to have human tropism in the UniProt database. This product is available as a service to both academic and industry customers.
