Flu-ToC

InDevR, a Boulder, Colo.-based life science company, this week announced that version 1.0 of the Influenza Titer on Chip is now available for purchase as a complete kit.

Flu-ToC is used as an alternative to single radial immunodiffusion for rapid quantification of influenza hemagglutinin protein in flu vaccines. The product uses a panel of subtype-specific antibodies that enable reliable quantification of hemagglutinin over a range of years, and can quantify HA protein in almost any medium including crude extract, bulk drug substance, and multivalent drug product, InDevR said.
