Immune Surveillance in SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Development

The ability to characterize the target of cell-mediated immune response is crucial during vaccine development. In studying the characterization of SARS-CoV-2 infection pathogenesis in humans, a research team identified neutralizing antibodies that provided context for vaccine antigen design. Discover how the ZE5 Cell Analyzer was used to detect activation-induced markers, measure intracellular cytokines, and identify spike protein–specific antibodies in a rapid, high-throughput manner.

Emerging reports from the COVID 19 pandemic include a spectrum of patient symptoms due to the host immune response. In this webinar, Bio-Rad scientists discuss early research and nascent hypotheses about the pathophysiology of SARS CoV 2–induced COVID 19 disease by evaluating cytokine and chemokine profiles, the role of chronic inflammation in comorbidities, and the arc of immune resolution of historical virulent pathogens, such as SARS and MERS.
