University researcher needs pharmaceutical microbiology laboratory for cultured streptococcus mutans research study on the biochemical properties and antibacterial action of two drugs on the microbe culture from saliva samples including glucose utilization, DNA content (increased or decreased due to the effect of these drugs) and membrane integrity of strep mutans in the culture.
Preclinical Contract Research Organization neededed for Influenza vaccination efficacy study in a specific strain of KO mice. Vaccination followed by challenge with live virus. Plasma should be collected before vaccination and at 4 weeks. This should be followed by challenge with the Influenza virus and two weeks of survival curve .Vaccination would be delivered IM and infection delivered intranasally as in humans.
Molecular Biology / Bioanalytical Laboratory needed for up to three university-based experiments involving human cell lines:
Experiment #1: Test up to 5 human cell lines (i.e. liver, kidney, etc...). Formalinize these cell lines in order to have a bank ready to be used. Then culture peripheral blood stem cells,apply the different formalin treated cells into the growth media, and determine what occurs. I am looking to determine if differentiation is stimulated toward the cell lines that were added. Is there inhibition or is there no reaction?
Experiment #2: Culture peripheral stem cells, add various growth factors (ex. neupogen), and determine if cell expansion is stimulated
Experiment #3: Growth of autologous stem cells on an autologous feeder layer (cells and feeder layer from the same patient). Looking to find what numbers of cells are achieved in a set time frame.
FDA GLP Preclinical Laboratory needed for PCR viral testing of two regenerative drug products and raw materials using Pharmacopeia methods:
1. HIV (anti-HIV (I/II),
2. Human T-Lymphotropic virus I and II
4. Epstein-Bar virus
5. Hepatitis C
6. HBV (HBsAg & anti-HBC)
In order to stay in line with the pharmacopeia guidelines, we would like to perform detection of the former viruses on our products with the PCR method.

1. HIV (anti-HIV (I/II), negative <1.0)
2. Human T-Lymphotropic virus I and II
3. Cytomegalovirus (antibodies for cytomegalovirus IgG, negative ,6.0 AU/ml; antibodies for cytomegalovirus IgM, negative 0.9 IV)
4. Epstein-Bar virus (antibodies for Epstein-Barr IgG, negative 0.19 AU/ml; antibodies for Epstein-Barr IgM, negative 0.19 AU/ml; antibodies EBV-NA IgG, negative <0.91)
5. Hepatitis C (antibodies for hepatitis C, negative <1.0)

Biosafety Level BSL-2 Laboratory needed for conducting research on oncolytic viruses based on HSV1, Herpes Simplex Virus. We are looking for services for titrating how much HSV1 virus is present in our samples (e.g. plaque assays) and/or assays measuring cytopathic affect of virus in samples (CPE). We can provide cell lines for these assays if needed. If possible, we would also like to provide cancer cell lines to use for testing after titration is done in a more common cell line (e.g. vero cells).
Large Canadian pharmaceutical firm needs a contract lab for Raw Materials Testing for Sorbitol that can test for lead and nickel using an AA or ICP instrument. The specifications of the tests are lead, [EP (2.4.10) limit NMT 0.5ppm], and nickel [EP (2.4.15) limit NMT 1ppm]

assess the androgenic activity, in a quantitative fashion, of a single steriod with the trivial name tetrahydrogestrinone(THG) in a pilot scale study. Either an aquatic organism model or rodent model would appear adequate to provide the information desired but other potential testing types will be considered such as in-vitro receptor binding studies. The study should compare the relative androgenicity of THG to a reference compound such as testosterone
