Case Studies

Macrophage assays

Isolated monocytes from fresh healthy donor whole blood were differentiated into macrophages. Validated by cytokine profiling and surface marker expression. Suitable In vitro assay models for measuring compound effect on macrophage cell function and gene expression.

Cytokine levels

Surface marker expression levels

Here we demonstrate successful differentiation of monocytes into macrophages. Our In vitro assay models enabled us to support our client’s therapeutic programmes, measuring compound effect on macrophage polarisation, activation, cell function, and gene expression.
