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

Automated Dispensation of Yttrium Oxide SPA Imaging Beads, into 1536-Well Plates Using Deerac Fluidics’ Equator™ HTS Pipetting System

Deerac Fluidics

Abstract

The drive towards miniaturization within the pharmaceutical field has created a need for liquid handling technologies that accurately deliver low volume reagents to high-density well plates. GE Healthcare’s Scintillation Proximity Assay (SPA) provides an innovative approach for assay  development and biochemical screening that allows the rapid and sensitive measurement of a wide variety of molecular interactions in a homogeneous system.

Here we demonstrate the successful combination of the use of the Equator HTS pipetting system to dispense Streptavidin coupled Yttrium Oxide (YOx) SPA Imaging beads. 2ul of YOx beads were dispensed into1536-well plates containing an excess of 3H-biotin. Plates were read on LEADseeker™ Multimodality Imaging System and analyzed for accuracy and reproducibility. CVs of 6-7% were obtained. Outliers were within spec of 10 or less per 1000 wells.

These results demonstrate the efficacy of the Equator™ HTS with built-in stirred reservoir for the automation of the dispensation of YOx beads to high density plate formats.
