Enterovirus EV-D68 Isolates

BEI Resources has recently posted the Enterovirus EV-D68 isolates from the CDC to the website for ordering.  These isolates were newly added to NIAID's list of Emerging Infectious Diseases/Pathogens.

Transposon library mutants available to study non-essential genes of Staphylococcus aureus

As part of the Network on Antimicrobial Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus (NARSA), BEI Resources is supplying the scientific community with the Nebraska Transposon Mutant Library (NTML). The NTML is an assortment of sequence-defined transposon insertion mutants of S. aureus strain USA300 LAC. Each clone harbors a different more...

New Updates to MR4’s “Methods in Anopheles Research” and “Methods in Malaria Research” Laboratory Manuals - Now Available for Free

Our friends at the CDC have updated the frequently-accessed and freely available MR4 Methods in Anopheles Research laboratory manual, which provides detailed insectary and benchtop protocols for rearing, genotyping, and phenotyping Anopheline and other mosquito vector colonies, as well as information on field techniques, insecticide resistance, screening for Wolbachia infection, and an introduction to Aedes and Culex colony methodology. To access the updates, download the full manual at no cost more...

Pathogenic amoebae that affect human health

Amoebae are a diverse group of protists that move primarily by extending and retracting pseudopodia. The most important pathogenic amoeba for humans is Entamoeba histolytica. Among the free-living amoebae that exist in nature, Acanthamoeba spp. and Naegleria fowleri belong to a handful of genera that have an association with human disease. BEI Resources houses a diversity of more...

Sand Flies, Reduviids and Ticks are Here

The Vector Resource materials within BEI Resources aims to support research to discover new ways to prevent the spread of disease. Vectors—organisms that transmit pathogens to hosts—include mosquitoes, ticks, triatomine bugs, sand flies, black flies, tsetse flies, fleas, mites and certain freshwater snails. BEI Resources currently supplies mosquitoes, ticks, reduviids, sand flies and snails to researchers.

Chikungunya Viruses - New Strains Available

BEI Resources announces the addition of two novel BSL3 strains of Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), R-91142 and 182/25, to the catalog of available items. CHIKV is a mosquito-borne alphavirus that is mainly associated with acute febrile illness. Strains R-91142 and 182/25 CHIKV are of Asian origin. Strain 182/25 is the recently developed vaccine candidate and the only CHIKV strain to be tested in humans. Also available in the BEI Resources catalog is the CHIKV African prototype strain, S-27 and SL-15649 which was isolated in 2008 from a human serum sample collected from a febrile patient in 2006 in Sri Lanka
