Innovative technology that enables RNAi in difficult to transfect cells
GE Healthcare Dharmacon, Inc.

Investigations at Dharmacon have led to the development of innovative siRNA molecules that can be delivered into difficult-to-transfect cells without additional lipid reagents, virus, or instruments. This technology, Accell siRNA reagents, enables gene knockdown for functional genomic studies in a wide variety of cell types. In some instances, cells can be continuously dosed with Accell siRNAs to enable target gene knockdown for extended durations.
Measuring Antitumor Effect of c-Myr-Max heterodimerization inhibitor 100258-F4 on Ovarian Cancer Cells using Cellometer Imaging Cytometry
Nexcelom Bioscience LLC, University of North Carolina

The effect from the c-Mycinhibitor 100258-F4 was clearly observed from the G0/G1 cell cycle arrest and the increase in early and late apoptotic cell. The Cellometer method can measure fluorescent cell-based assays such as cell cycle, apoptosis, protein expression, autophagy and viability. The ability to export the data to FCS Express facilitates simple data analysis and reporting to generate results for publications.
Modelling CLL cell and T-cell Migration in a Dynamic Circulating Model of CLL
'Cardiff CLL Research Group, Institute of Cancer & Genetics, School of Medicine, Cardiff University, Heath Park, Cardiff, UK. 2CRUK Institute for Cancer Studies, University of Birmingham, Vincent Driv

We have recently developed a novel circulating model of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) that mimics the transient interactions that take place between circulating lymphocytes and vascular endothelium. Here we show that both normal and malignant lymphocytes actively underwent transendothelial migration.
Quantification of Natural Killer Cell-Mediated Cytotixicity using Celigo Imaging Cytometry
Nexcelom Bioscience LLC, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Time-course tracking of % lysis eliminates multiple controls & the effect of non-uniform cell seeding in the final cytotoxicity calculation. The # of cells used is less than the cells needed for Release assays & Flow Cytometry. Flow cytometry & Release assays require a seeding density of 100K target cells increasing the number of effector cells to the millions. The visual observation of ADCC or CDC on the images can be convincing to conclude the functionality of antibodies or complements.

Application Notes
Aseptic Identification of Polysorbates using Handheld Raman
Rigaku Raman Technologies

As polysorbates are reactive to light and air, packaging is usually in thick, dark, amber bottles. This makes the identification process more difficult, as opening the container could compromise the sterility and quality of these materials. Handheld Raman is capable of identifying these materials without any sampling or preparation.
Cell Culture Media Identification In Biopharmaceuticals With Handheld Raman
Rigaku Raman Technologies

This application note discusses the identification of cell culture media using Raman analysis.
Performing ADCC Reporter Bioassay with an Environmentally Controlled Microplate Reader
Tecan Group Ltd.

The Promega ADCC Reporter Bioassay provides effector and target cells in frozen, thaw-and-use format, removing the need for isolating or culturing cells in order to perform the assay. Reporter induction requires a six-hour to overnight incubation in a standard cell culture incubator. The CO2 and temperature control features of the Tecan Infinite® 200 PRO with GCM allow the assay induction to be performed without the requirement for a cell culture incubator.
3D Cell Culture: mimicking real tissue
Tecan Group Ltd.

Technological advances in the last couple of years have enabled 3D scaffolds to be engineered that offer a real proxy for the in vivo environment which can be easily and routinely used in a cell culture laboratory. Alvetex Scaffold enables cells to develop natural, in vivo-like intercellular interactions, providing an ideal environment for real three-dimensional growth and nutrient exchange that is comparable to intra-capillary exchange in living tissues.
3D cell culture: a realistic and reproducible collagen-based environment
Tecan Group

Researchers are increasingly turning to 3D cell culture techniques, due to the improved physiological relevance of the cellular environment. 3D cell cultures offer a more in vivo-like response to stimuli more closely resembling the behavior of animal models or the human body.
Optimized cell culture
Tecan Group Ltd.

Culturing of various stable cell lines, including bacterial, yeast, hybridoma, insect and mammalian lines, and stem cells, is an important task in the pharmaceutical industry. The cells need to be maintained and expanded for use in cell-based assays, such as siRNA screening, ADME and high content screening, as well as for clone selection.
Determination of microbial cell viability
Tecan Group Ltd.

The BacTiter-Glo Microbial Cell Viability Assay is a luminescence-based assay for the determination of the viability of microbial cells, using quantification of ATP as an indicator of metabolically active, viable cells. The assay protocol comprises the addition of the BacTiter-Glo reagent directly to the sample, and subsequent measurement of luminescence; cell washing, removal of culture medium, and multiple pipetting steps are not required.
Stem cell research: Creating blood for high throughput screening
Tecan Group Ltd.

Many different research fields, including investigation of early human development processes, disease research, drug discovery and cellular therapy applications, require appropriate in vitro models which can accurately mimic in vivo processes to provide biologically relevant results.
