The study of the immune system allows checking immunological disorders (autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency,...) and pathogenic infection. A large panel of mouse cytokine analysis are available. Immunoglobulins (IgG subclasses, IgM, IgA and IgE) can be measured in plasma samples. Thymus and spleen cell lineage are determined by flow cytometry.
Several phenotypes may be identified using in vivo inflammatory disease models.
Within the same cohorte, 9 mice per group are recommended for reliable data analysis on blood samples. At least, 6 mice per group are required for data analysis on tissue sample.
Upon request, certain immune challenges can be performed (ex. LPS,...)
