Greetings from Kimer Med.
Our new toy - the EVOS M5000 Imaging System:
Rick’s had a lot of fun lately trying out our very fancy new microscope. It’s an EVOS M5000 Imaging System - a confocal, inverted, fluorescence-capable bench-top microscope. Here are a couple of images taken by Rick.
One of the many benefits of having a fluorescence-capable microscope is that we can tag our antiviral compound VTose with a marker that glows bright green when ‘excited’ by the right colour light. This enables us to confirm the presence of our compound in the cells as proof of its mechanism of action. You can see more of these image on our Facebook page.
Vet Survey on viral disease in companion animals:
As part of our market analysis we have just send out a survey to every vet practice in New Zealand. This will help us understand which viruses are most prevalent in cats, dogs and horses, what pet owners pay to treat them and whether there’s a market here for our antiviral. We’ll let you know more when the results are in.
What do you want to know about?
If you have questions about our work, we’d love to hear from you. Thank you for your continued interest in Kimer Med. Until next time,
Rick & Andy
