Institut Pasteur Korea Selects ActivityBase™ as its Screening Solution of Choice

New Research Center in Korea employs ActivityBase for High Content Screening.

IDBS has announced that Institut Pasteur - Korea has implemented the ActivityBase data management software suite to increase efficiency and throughput in its screening operations.

Institut Pasteur Korea (IP-K), a Research Center located in Seoul, South Korea, has purchased ActivityBase to handle their biology and chemistry data for High Throughput and High Content Screening (HTS/HCS).

IP-K is implementing HCS assays and platforms for Drug Discovery using cell-based models of disease and automated confocal microscopy.

IP-K will use ActivityBase suite to consolidate chemistry information and screening results, including those from microscopy-based screens, in a single Oracle database.

Institut Pasteur Korea decided to purchase ActivityBase as its researchers felt more secure with a system with a proven track record in Drug Discovery.

Dr. Thierry Christophe, the Head of the Screening and Pharmacology lab, has used ActivityBase in previous positions at other companies.

He said, "I am happy to be working with ActivityBase again, as it is a robust and flexible system that I know can deliver the results we need."

"We plan to develop specific data analysis templates for High Content Screens allowing the manipulation of multiplexing data from one single screen."

Neil Kipling, IDBS’ Chairman and CEO, commented, "The increase in HCS and HTS planned by IP-K’s screening group demanded a data management system that could scale up to their requirements, both now and in the future, as well as map closely to their workflow."

"We are delighted to be supporting a centre of excellence in biomedical research and technology development, allowing new drugs to be identified faster and more reliably."

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.

Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
