Welcome, Immune Diagnostics & Research specialize in diagnostics of immune responses in ferrets, mice and non human primate models.
We specialize in diagnostics of immune responses in ferrets, mice and non human primate models. IDR also develops immune reagents such as PCR primers, recombinant cytokines and chemokines, antibodies to cell surface proteins,antibodies to cytokines, cytokine receptors, chemokines, chemokine receptors, and other important immune related molecules.

IDR performs immune monitoring and immune modeling of ferrets infected with influenza, Avian Influenza, SARS, West Nile virus, and Dengue virus. We offer these services for the testing of vaccines, antivirals and immunotherapuetics.

IDR also performs discovery based research in the areas of host immune responses to viral and bacterial infections.
