General Virology Applications


Viral Growth/Titration

Viral titration assays allow quantification of virus concentration and production and isolation of purified virus. BioTek Imaging and Microscopy instruments with Gen5™ Image Analysis Software automate viral growth and titration assays.


Viral Replication Kinetics

Viral replication and growth kinetics provide key information for understanding virus-host interactions. BioTek Imaging and Microscopy instruments and Automation accessories provide live cell imaging and analysis capabilities.

  • Viral growth kinetics
  • Subcellular localization during virus lifecycle
  • Replication complexes


Viral Detection

For both basic research and clinical applications, the ability to quickly detect virus in a sample is key to any virology pipeline. With BioTek Imaging and Detection instruments, virus can be detected using a variety of methods, while BioTek Liquid Handlers and Stackers increase assay efficiency and throughput.  

  • Rapid ELISA screen
  • Fluorescent detection of immunolabed/reporter strains
  • Screening antibodies for viral detection
