IVISbrite Staphylococcus aureus Xen29 Bioluminescent Bacterial Strain

IVISbrite Staphylococcus aureus Xen29 bioluminescent bacteria was derived from a parental strain from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), used under license. For in vitro or in vivo imaging applications, IVISbrite S. aureus-Xen29 possesses a stable copy of the Photorhabdus luminescens lux operon on the bacterial chromosome.

Overview

Infectious disease is a perennially important area for both life science research and drug discovery. Some of the first applications of IVIS® imaging technology were in tracking infections and monitoring host responses, and these applications are still at the forefront of research.

Our bioluminescent infectious disease light-producing microorganisms have been developed to mimic both acute and chronic standard infection protocols presently used by researchers.

  • Engineered Bacterium: Staphylococcus aureus - Xen29
  • Parental Strain: American Type Culture Collection, used under license
  • In Vitro/Ex Vivo: Growth profiles, Antibiogram, Catheter model
  • In Vivo: Sepsis, Soft tissue, and Biofilm models

Advantages of using bioluminescent light-producing microorganisms for drug discovery in vitro:

  • Rapid and readily amenable to high throughput screening, e.g., 96 or 384-well format
  • Sensitivity - subtle changes in cellular viability are rapidly detected
  • Inexpensive - no additional substrates needed for bacterial assays

Advantages of using bioluminescent light-producing microorganisms for drug discovery in vivo:

  • Rapid identification of lead drug candidates
  • Real-time efficacy data
  • May help to decrease drug failure by allowing disease relapse to be monitored in the same animal
