Immunodeficient BRGSF Mouse Model
Compared to the traditional immunodeficient strains such as NOD-SCID and NSG, the BRGSF mouse represents the most adapted animal model to study and predict human immune responses in vivo.
This next generation mouse is a unique preclinical model to study:
- Vaccine development
- Efficacy and safety of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy
- Myeloid compartment development
- Patient-derived xenograft (PDX)
- Human CD34+ hematopoietic stem cell engraftment (see BRGSF-HIS)
Or get supplemental information, a quote, and estimated timeframe for delivery of your BRGSF line.
- Highly permissive to patient-derived xenografts (PDXs) and cell line engraftment by virtue of the SIRPαNOD expression
- Suitable to assess the effects of radiation in vivo due to the absence of the SCID mutation on a BALB/c background
- A powerful tool for complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) studies because of the presence of a functional murine complement system
