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

Automated sample preparation for the determination of testosterone in serum by LC-MSMS

Tecan Group Ltd.

Prior to any analysis by LC-MSMS, a sample clean-up step is recommended to remove matrix components such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and salts. Compared to most conventional sample preparation methods, this new approach has fewer processing steps and is easier to automate, as well as having the advantage that the final eluate can be injected directly into an LC-MSMS system, enabling quantitative analysis without the need for reconstitution. 

The centrepiece of the new sample preparation method is the AC Extraction Plate with TICE™ technology. The AC Extraction Plate offers a fast, robust and easy-to-automate analytical sample preparation method requiring minimal sample pre-treatment. Time consuming, difficult to automate procedures such as protein precipitation, filtration or centrifugation are eliminated, accelerating and simplifying the entire sample preparation workflow. The extraction can be performed manually, or be easily automated on a liquid handling platform.
