OncoImmunin, Inc. is developing fluorogenic substrates for the detection of viral
infections in cells and tissues. Our approach is similar to that successfully employed in
our other products- a peptide substrate is designed that is specific for a viral
proteolytic activity. Detection of substrate cleavage, either intracellularly or in
tissues, is a convenient marker for a specific virus.
OncoImmunin, Inc. is also utilizing its Xyton Stealth DeliveryTM technology to measure mRNA levels of viral genes in live infected cells.
