Amino-Coated Metallofullerene Nanoparticles for Glioblastoma Mutiforme Tumor Detection
Tinghui Li , Susan. Murphy, Kanwarpal Bakshi, Steven LaConte, Zhi Sheng, and Harry Dorn

We report the preparation of a new functionalized trimetallic nitride endohedral metallofullerene, with a cage surface consisting of positively charged amino groups, which is expected to bind more efficiently to negatively charged cell phospholipid bi-layer cellular surfaces and will more readily undergo endocytosis. We now report that this Gd-nanoplatform when subsequently conjugated with an IL-13 peptide, (IL-13-Gd3N@C80(OH)x(NH2)y) exhibits enhanced targeting of U-251 GBM cell lines.

Side by Side: An Evaluation of 2D vs. 3D Cell Culture for High Throughput Screening in Drug Discovery
Sophie Quick 1,2, Sinead Knight 1, Jon Winter 3

•3D cell culture has the potential to provide a more physiologically relevant model compared to standard tissue culture plastic.
•From a screening perspective the technology offers the possibility of more predictive drug responses but has an increased cost.
•The question: is it possible and, more importantly, is it worthwhile moving towards screening in High Throughput using a 3D model?

Use of a Microlitre Digital Liquid Handler for Screening Applications
Joby Jenkins, Gillian Lewis, Wayne Bowen

Digital dispensing offers researchers the most freedom for experimental design and sample placement with each microplate. It makes it relatively simple to plan and execute the most desirable experimental design and not one predicated by manual or automated liquid handling.

Design and Evaluation of High Definition Probe for HPV genotyping Microarray
Sihn Ae Lee, Ah Reum Park, Inyoung Kim, Ji Hyung Lee, and Jongwon Kim

To improve the sensitivity and specificity of the HPV DNA Microarray, we adopted triple oligonucleotide probes for each targets and selected these probes not to have higher similarity of 75% with each others. These triple probes have shown 10 ~ 100 times higher sensitivities with comparable specificities than the conventional HPV DNA microarray of single oligonuclotide probe.

Gut Microbial Metabolites and Hepatic Xenobiotic Metabolism: A High Throughput Screening Approach
Glynn Martin, James Sidaway, Jonathan Swann

This poster highlights the combination of metabonomics and high throughput screening by the identification of gut microbial metabolites and a screening assay designed to determine their cytotoxicity to liver-like cell cultures.

Digital PCR to Determine the Number of Transcripts from Single Neurons after Patch-clamp Recording
Nóra Faragó1,2, Ágnes K. Kocsis3, Sándor Lovas3, Gábor Molnár3, Márton Rózsa3, Viktor Szemenyei3, Ágnes Zvara2, Gábor Tamás3, László G Puskás1,2

Whole-cell patch-clamp recording enables detecting electrophysiological signals from neurons, and RNA can be harvested into the patch pipette from the cells.We have optimized a dPCR protocol for determining exact transcript numbers in single neurons after patch-clamp recording by using dPCR based on high-density nanocapillary PCR.
