Viral Infection Imaging Analysis

Viral Infection Imaging Analysis

In today's society, viral infection has become one of the main reasons for threatening human health. New lethal viruses are constantly being discovered around the world, including severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Ebola virus and avian influenza virus. Therefore, imaging the detailed process of viral infection and pathological changes is important for the development of antiviral therapies.

Viral Infection Imaging Analysis

Currently, the mechanism of virus infection is mainly understood by analyzing the biochemical changes during virus-cell interaction. However, a series of important physical processes are also involved in the viral infection process, and the physical processes during viral infection are not fully understood. Therefore, studying the mechanical changes of cells during viral infection will help to understand the process of viral infection. Atomic force microscopy is a powerful tool for analyzing viral infection processes.

CD BioSciences has been committed to the development of fluorescent dyes and imaging technology for many years. We can use atomic force microscopy to observe the morphological changes of cells during virus infection. Studying living cell surface morphology will help to better understand the behavior of cells following viral infection, as cell surface morphology is an important indicator of cellular physiological and pathological activity.
