New York, USA – March 23, 2021 – Research involving non-human primates (NHPs) has long been a critical role in medical and scientific advances of the past century despite the controversy from animals’ welfare organizations, in that NHPs are similar to humans in genetics, anatomy, physiology, neurophysiology, immunogenetics, and many other aspects. Even in recent COVID-19 vaccine trials, the establishment and the development of novel non-human primate models are still one of the most vital parts.
To better support preclinical studies of novel therapeutics research in vitro, Creative Biolabs introduces an abundance of primate-related products in terms of NHP species.
NHP Blood Samples: Serum, Plasma, and Whole Blood
The blood samples of NHPs are widely applied in medical experiments, and they greatly contribute to the basic research on disease pathology, vaccine development, immunology, and cardiology. They are also allowed in FDA guidelines for toxicology and efficacy studies in drug development in the pharmaceutical industry.
For instance, cynomolgus monkey serum can be used to determine complement dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), as well as to set and generate the concentration reference range for various tests (such as cytokine release measurement). Besides, monkey plasma is a common material in life science laboratories or biochemical experiments such as PCR, western blot, immunoprecipitation, and immunofluorescent flow cytometry.
“Taking animals’ welfare and the necessity of drug development into consideration, conducting in vitro studies on samples (such as peripheral mononuclear cell PBMC or monkey whole blood) might be a compromise for both researchers and animal rights organizations.” Scientists at Creative Biolabs said.
NHP Sources at Creative Biolabs
Many NHP species are employed in biomedical and behavioral research, while three macaque species are the most widely used in UK and US. Some other species such as African green monkeys and squirrel monkeys are also required but with a lesser number.
Creative Biolabs has a wide range of NHP samples from cynomolgus monkey, Africa green monkey, Cebus, squirrel monkey, Marmoset, rhesus monkey, baboon, chimpanzee, Macaca mulatta, and Capuchin monkey. And all these primate products are high-quality and negative for herpes B virus, retroviruses, SIV, SRV, & STLV.
Additionally, resources at Creative Biolabs also include biological samples from disease models, over 15 primary cells from PBMCs, Cd3+ Pan T cells, etc., tissues from different systems, and various monkey body fluids for research.
