Infectious disease occurs if the host’s immune system is not able to eliminate or neutralize a pathogen. The first, innate immune response often involves inflammation and is followed by adaptive immune response and pathogen clearance.
In acute inflammation, a cascade of cellular and vascular reactions drives and matures the inflammatory response. Prolonged inflammation may turn chronic, potentially triggering tissue destruction, organ-specific autoimmune disease, or even malignant transformation.
Miltenyi Biotec provides the tools to study immune cells involved in infection and inflammation in detail – from automated tissue dissociation
through efficient cell isolation
to sophisticated flow cytometric
or molecular analysis
and reliable cell culture
