Infectious diseases rank among the top respiratory system illnesses. The novel and resurfacing respiratory viral outbreaks have jeopardized public health and global economy. The coronavirus-associated epidemics like SARS (2003), MERS (2015), and COVID-19 (2019) have drawn attention to viral infections.
In vitro models that mimic in vivo characteristics and functionality of airway epithelial cells have become pivotal tools for the pathogenesis of respiratory viruses.
CELLnTEC offers market leading serum-free Airway Media for developing 2D/3D airway epithelial cell culturing systems for investigating respiratory viruses.
