In vitro assays help combat ectoparasite infections


Ectoparasites can live on, feed on and sometimes breed on an animal

How our in vitro assays help you combat them

In vitro assays help you determine the efficacy of your candidate compound and identify the level at which it is effective. They can also confirm that a parasite is developing resistance to a particular compound.

The tests can simultaneously evaluate the same dose rate or exposure level and different dose rates or exposure levels.

We can carry out in vitro assays on:

  • Ticks
  • Fleas
  • Lice
  • Mites
  • Various stages of biting or blow flies
