In vitro assays help combat ectoparasite infections

Ectoparasites

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

How our in vivo assays help you combat them

In vivo assays help you determine the efficacy and safety of your candidate compound and identify the level at which it is effective. They can also help confirm whether or not a parasite is developing resistance to a particular compound.

We run in vivo assays on animals that are carrying a natural infestation of:

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

We can also apply the treatment and then introduce the parasite to test whether the treatment will prevent an infestation.
