VirNext provides expertise in the field of respiratory viruses (influenza, pneumoviruses, adenovirus, rhinovirus, coronaviruses and all SARS-CoV-2 variants of interest) and a large panel of technologies including egg and cell-based process of virus and vaccine antigen production, and several in vitro and in vivo preclinical models of infection.

Here under is a reconstructed human airway epithelium MucilAir (Epithelix) infected by the SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.2 Delta strain observed by confocal microscopy at CIQLE (Centre d’Imagerie Quantitative Lyon Est) Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Nuclei are blue, SARS-CoV-2 Spike staining is red and cell membranes are green.
