Zika Virus Successfully Inactivated Using VivoPHIX

The Pasteur Institute has successfully demonstrated inactivation of the Zika Virus using vivoPHIX™: To determine the ability of vivoPHIX™ to inhibit ZIKV in mosquito tissue sample, ZIKV-infected mosquito midguts were dissected at 6 dpi. Mosquito midguts were then chopped into 3-4 small pieces then transfer into vivoPHIX™. Samples were then treated at 4 degree Celsius [...]

New vivoPHIX publication in Current Osteoporosis Reports

Single-cell analysis is an expanding technology offering unique perspectives into transcriptional functions of individual cells. In contrast with bulk RNAseq that analyses the entire RNA content of a biological sample regardless of the cell of origin of the transcript, scRNA-seq first relies on the successful isolation of live cells from the sample, and separation of [...]
