Welcome to Immunology Services 

Immunology Services

Immunology Services (IS) is a research service unit of the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, that specializes in measuring antigen specific cellular responses of nonhuman primates. IS performs standardized elispot, and flow cytometry-based immune assays, and conducts vaccination experiments. In addition to routine tests IS develops custom immune-assays to meet the specific aims of collaborating investigators. Primate Center investigators and other NIH supported researchers receive priority attention from IS, but anyone is welcome to contact us.
