Ever-evolving biological research requires tools that are not always easily and commercially available. For a researcher, that challenge can be difficult for a variety of reasons: material procurement, technical knowledge, capacity and the risk of production downtime.
With the first Immunis Sponsorship for Young Science, or Immunis for short, SZABO-SCANDIC and the Next Generation Immunologists NGI, as the young scientists' organization of the Austrian Society for Allergology and Immunology ÖGAI is called, want to support young scientists.
With the ongoing vaccination programmes, the level of immunisation becomes of vital significance. The detection of both SARS-CoV-2 IgG and neutralizing antibodies are the methods of choice for the screening of patients after the vaccination.
Importing different products from the UK to Austria has become very difficult for many people since the Brexit, especially if the structures for a smooth process in the company are missing. We at Szabo-Scandic were well prepared, therefore the import of goods from the UK works without any problems.
Microwell plate readers are considered to be indispensable in every laboratory. This owes to the fact that they have the capability – depending on the device – to measure signals from chemical and biological reactions of laboratory samples. To ensure that they are not only measuring hot air, but perform according to high standards, a regular validation is necessary. One of the techniques for this purpose is specifically highly regarded by our customer service.
We offer an extensive range of research reagents to support the SARS-CoV-2 studies. Please see below the products for SARS-CoV-2 research, from antibodies to proteins and additional reagents like viral transport medium or ELISA kit to measure cytokine storm. For the detection of SARS-CoV-2, we have ELISA and PCR kits as well as an antibody rapid test.
