Virusys Corporation is involved in custom antibody development from patient's antigen. It can even use an amino acid sequence from patient's protein to synthesize an epitope and develop an antibody to it. It offers rabbit, chicken, goat, sheep and llama in addition to murine monoclonals. It develops antibodies for cytomegalovirus, Epstein - Barr virus, herpes simplex 1, 2, herpes virus 8, influenza and Varicella zoster.

Virusys offers custom services which are laboratory services performed for custom applications such as a recombinant protein required and monoclonal antibody produced and purified or maybe as simple as getting some of the experimental product lyophilized. It services include: antibody development and production, antibody purification and conjugation, protein purification, protein expression, peptide synthesis, lyophilization, ELISA development and western blot strips.

Virusys has developed a highly sensitive and specific enzyme immunoassay for the detection of Influenza B nucleoprotein antigen in complex sample matrices. The assay can be completed in less than 1.5 hr. and contains only one wash step. Influenza B virus is predominantly a human pathogen, although it has been found to infect seals. The limited host range of influenza B and a slower rate of mutation than influenza A appears to preclude development of influenza B pandemics, but influenza B is a significant human pathogen and on an individual basis, infection may result in death.
