MaxSignal® All-In-One ELISA AutoAnalyzer is a computer controlled instrument system, capable of automating any or all stages of assay processing that involve these functions: • Fluid Handling - aspirates and dispenses from 2 µL to 1.95 mL • Incubating - heating temperatures - coil heats to 37°C, plate heats to 25°C or 37°C, or no temperature control (ambient). Reagent cooling available with optional Reagent Cooling Accessory • Mixing - reaction plate only • Timing - from 1 second to 24 hours • Optical Reading - UV/visible range • Calculating - uses numerous preprogrammed equations • Data Storage - unlimited capacity • Data Reporting - many options and customizations to choose from The system allows one to define and program an unlimited number of customized protocols by selecting displayed menu options from a Microsoft Windows® software program. This open system can be programmed to perform any of the colorimetric biochemistry assays that can be handled using the volumes, temperatures, and wavelengths provided. It has many possible applications in analysis of food and water, environmental testing and life science research.
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. Cytoskeleton Crew 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. Valvena, GSK Sign New R&D Collaboration Valneva to supply process development services for EB66® -based Influenza vaccines. Light Signals from Living Cells Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.Cellular 'Relief Valve' A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
