Discovery LIfe Sciences’ histopathology and genomic experts are currently supporting several research projects designed to help understand more about COVID-19’s heterogeneity, anatomical distribution, and mechanisms of pathophysiology.

Our goal is to help scientists learn more about the virus, so we – as a community – can more effectively stop its spread and treat its effects.

Current Genomic

COVID-19 Capabilities:

  • COVID-19 RNA sequencing services from swab, saliva, stool, blood and tissue sources via total RNASeq methods to capture viral and host RNA.
  • COVID-19 viral genome sequencing services to sequence the full viral genome from all sample sources
  • COVID-19 RT-PCR assay services for detection of virus
  • COVID-19 LAMP assay service for detection of virus
  • Nucleic acid isolation services from COVID-19 positive and negative samples


Current IHC-based

COVID-19 Capabilities:

  • COVID-19 spike and envelope protein IHC staining has been optimized
  • COVID-19 RNA in situ detection using RNAscope has been optimized
  • Co-expression analysis of COVID-19 spike/envelope protein and other targets of interest
