Analysis of SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells is important in understanding their role during acute disease and in long-term protection after infection or vaccination. Though studying these rare cells comes with challenges, the insights gained offer great opportunities in fighting COVID-19. This webinar will cover both sides.
There is also growing evidence that SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells play an important role in recovery from COVID-19. Researchers have reported the presence of a SARS-CoV-2-specific memory T-cell population in the blood of convalescent donors. These cells could be used to treat COVID-19 patients in certain cases.
At Miltenyi Biotec, we offer a complete workflow for the study of virus-specific T cells. Several preparation methods for clinical-grade cell products have been described that utilize our CliniMACS® Technology.1-3
