|A novel DNA amplification method based on silicon microring resonator for rapid detection of genetic alteration in the point-of care (POC) field of cancers|
Nucleic acid testing plays a critical role in molecular diagnosis[1-2]. Due to the low amounts of DNA obtained in clinical samples, the amplification of DNA is an essential step in most NAT methods .
|Hypothesis of an Existence of a Reverse Pathway (Rp) which Passes Genetic Information from Polypeptide Antigens to Ig Genes in B-Lymphocytes|
Victor J. Alexander
Results of this research will bring new more effective treatment methods of many immune related diseases, including cancer.
|Integrating compound storage into automated laboratory workflows |
James Craven, Simon Tullett
This poster discusses the benefits of comPOUND for automated sample storage and delivery. TTP Labtech’s pneumatic transport technology, lab2lab, integrates these stores with other instrumentation into managed, fully automated workflows, allowing the scientist to focus on research and data analysis.
|A mix-and-read cell-based assay for antibody screening against Epithelial Growth Factor Receptor |
Wayne P Bowen, David Onley, Paul Wylie, Diana Caracino and Tristan Cope
Here we present a sensitive robust, mix-and-read method for the screening of antibodies against cell surface proteins. With its simple operation, no-wash format, and high sensitivity, this new method is well-suited for high throughput antibody screening.
|Oral Health Management of a Patient with 47 XYY Syndrome|
Dr Altaf H Shah, Prof. Amjad H Wyne and Prof. Rita Khounganian
The 47XYY syndrome is an aneuploidy of sex chromosomes, where a human male receives an extra Y-chromosome making a total of 47 instead of the usual 46.
|The Challenges of Relieving Cancer Pain: A Literature Review|
This study aims to explore the discrepancy between the increasing array of treatments for cancer pain, as well as the evidence that it can be managed effectively in the majority of cases, and its persisting prevalence.
|Evaluation of 2012 Bowel Cancer Awareness and Early Diagnosis Campaign at a District General Hospital|
M Alkhusheh, H Asalieh, N Smith
Following the regional Be Clear on Cancer campaign, the Department of Health launched a national bowel cancer awareness campaign from 30 January 2012. The campaign ran until the end of March.
|Identification and Characterization of Strain Specific Drug Target by Subtractive Genome Analysis of Methicillin Resistance Staphylococcus aureus|
Kiran Saeed and Reaz Uddin
This study aimed to identify and characterize strain specific essential protein targets, which will eventually help in the identification of druggable proteins in two strains of MRSA by using different Bioinformatic tools and databases. We adopting a subtractive genome approach within the domain of Computational Biology.
|Low cost, low footprint, expandable automated biobanking solutions |
James Craven, Chris Morris, Maud Godfrey, Danielle Miller
This case study describes how TTP Labtech’s comPOUND storage modules have been employed by Abcam, a worldwide supplier of antibodies. Here, the turnaround time of sample placement and retrieval is an essential component for high quality service to its customers.
