Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases are illnesses caused by infectious pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. It is one of the most common reasons for hospitalisation worldwide. Being contagious infections, most diseases spread from person to person through different modes of transmission and causes of infection. Today, the emergence of newer infections and the re-emergence of known conditions caused major domestic and public health concerns in developing and developed countries. Besides, infectious diseases are the highly contageous diseases leading to cause of disability-adjusted life years and global mortality rate. Moreover, growing antimicrobial resistance has evoked global concern about superinfection, and tackling potential infections will be challenging. Therefore, in the 21st-century infectious diseases receive more attention and are one of the major agendas for global health leaders, healthcare workers, health policymakers, and health researchers in any discussion. Therefore, research to discover novel antibiotics, therapeutic regimens, and vaccines are fostered across the globe to mitigate present and future infection.

The advanced biospecimen inventory of  Central BioHub makes it unique in catering biosample requirements for global scientific research and development. The high-end technologies and the most sophisticated instruments drive the storage of samples pristine to meet the versatile research requirements and infection prevention. We are dedicated to biospecimen research with quality assured customer service offering ethically obtained biosamples from diverse populations.


Our customized methodologies are monitored with utmost care maintaining stringent procedures adhering to emphasized protocols of safety and confidential adhering to the company policies. Our state-of-the-art comprehensive biorepository stores research biofluids ranging from small to bulk volumes with perfect maintenance to best meet your research endpoints. Central BioHub presents you with a wide range of infectious diseases biospecimens that include:

 

Bacterial Infection samples: It comprises small volume of serum and plasma samples collected from infected patients with chlamydia pneumonia, helicobacter pylori, and mycoplasma pneumonia explicitly tested for specific antibodies like C. pneumoniae antibody, H. pylori antibody, M. pneumoniae antibody, respectively.

 

Viral Infection samples: We offer serum and plasma samples of patients infected with viral infection contageous to people such as adenovirus, cytomegalovirus (CMV), parvovirus B19, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Mumps virus, Varicella zoster virus (VZV), and Measles virus. Blood samples are accurately screened for specific antibody testing and preserved devoid of cross-contamination in our partner’s Biobank.

 

TYPE OF VIRUS: TESTED LABORATORY PARAMETERS
Adenovirus: anti-Adenovirus  IgG
Cytomegalovirus (CMV): Cytomegalovirus antibody (anti-CMV)
Parvovirus B19: Anti-Parvovirus B19 antibody
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV): Viral capsid antigen (VCA) and EBV nuclear antigen (EBNA)
Mumps Virus: Anti-mumps antibody or pathogen detection by PCR
Varicella-Zoster virus (VZV): Anti-Varicella Zoster Virus antibody (anti-VZV)
Mumps Virus: Anti-mumps antibody or pathogen detection by PCR

 

Protozoal Infection samples comprise Human biospecimen containing positive molecular results for protozoal infections intended for research purposes. We provide serum, and plasma samples explicitly tested for specific antibodies and hyper annotated with relevant clinical information and stored at<-180C at our partner’s biobank.

 
TYPE OF PROTOZOA: TESTED LABORATORY PARAMETERS
Toxoplasmosis: Toxoplasma gondii antibody
Chagas disease: Anti-Trypanosoma cruzi antibody
Malaria: Anti-Plasmodium falciparum and Anti-Plasmodium vivax Malaria antigen

 

Fungal Infection samples: It comprises genetically diverse specimens such as human serum, plasma, vaginal swabs, and urine samples intended for research purposes. The biosamples are precisely screened for determining the quantitative fungal load for meeting research endpoints and stored at <-18°C at our partner’s biobank.

Every sample of infectious diseases is tested with precision and handled with utmost care. Central BioHub is the one way to reach the biospecimen suppliers that eases the conventional time-consuming procurement methodologies. We are prompt at service and guarantee high-quality bio outputs that are cost-effective, reliable, and customer-centric.

Infectious diseases are contagious diseases caused by a broad spectrum of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, worms, or parasites, causing several health implications and premature mortality. Different modes of transmission are involved in the spread of diseases. It can be transmitted from person to person, from animals, birds or insects to humans, or is acquired through contaminated food and water consumption.
Signs and symptoms range from mild to life-threatening symptoms depending upon the type of infection and extent of disease. However, a person infected by any pathogens experiences general symptoms like fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, general malaise, cough, and fatigue. Specific signs and diagnostic tests allow the correct diagnosis and guide the physicians to plan treatment regimens appropriately.
Infectious disease research focuses on discovering novel strategies to diagnose, treat, cure, and prevent infections. It enables the researchers to magnify infection biology, disease occurrence, transmission, and characteristics for better understanding. Moreover, infectious diseases research aids in developing health policies and infection control measures for managing and preventing epidemics and pandemics. Besides, it helps in the rational usage of antibiotics and fosters the discovery of new ones and vaccines.
Infectious diseases biospecimens include human biofluids such as serum, plasma, urine, CSF, and vaginal swabs collected from patients infected with bacteria, virus, fungus, protozoa, or parasites. The samples are precisely tested for pathogen-specific laboratory testing, well-annotated with relevant clinical data, and stored cryogenically at our partner’s biobanks. Every sample is readily available for shipping and intended for the development of diagnostics, therapeutic agents, and assay validation in infectious disease research and quality control purposes.
Infections can be largely prevented by practising hygiene and taking precautions as follow: • Wash hands with soap and clean water or use alcohol-based hand sanitisers • Avoid close contact with infected individuals • Have safe and protected sex • Eat healthy, nutritious food • Avoid ingestion of contaminated food and water • Protect ourselves by taking appropriate vaccination • Avoid travelling to disease-endemic regions • Do not share personal belongings • Consult doctor, if you are unwell • Stop antibiotic abuse • Disinfect your utilities to prevent surface contamination
