Experimental infection models

SSI has state of the art laboratories and animal facilities. We offer design, planning and execution of in vivo experimental infection studies. These models can be used for studying host pathogen interactions, host responses, bacterial virulence and antibiotic treatment.

Murine infection models 

  • Peritonitis/Sepsis
  • Thigh infection
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Skin infection 
  • Pneumonia
  • Fungal sepsis

Examples of human pathogens used infection models

Peritonitis/sepsis model  

  • Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae
  • Streptococcus pyogenes
  • Escherichia coli (ESBL)
  • Klebsiella spp.
  • Enterobacter spp.
  • Proteus mirabilis
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Enterococcus faecalis

Skin infection model

  • Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • Streptococcus pyogenes
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Candida Albicans

Urinary tract infection model

  • Escherichia coli (ESBL)
  • Klebsiella spp.
  • Proteus spp.

Pneumonia model

  • Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
