Genetic integrity of rice seeds during ageing and gene bank storage by SSR analysis
I. O. Daniel, K. A. Adeboye, O. W. Adabale, E. S. Aladele and A. Boerner

Rice seeds loose germination capacity with ageing. Loses in genetic integrity was found to occur during artificial ageing at a time when percentage germination declined to 54%.

Rapid analysis of 3D tumour spheroids in soft agar and on ultra-low attachment plates using a laser scanning imaging system
Anne F Hammerstein, Diana Caracino, and Paul Wylie

The requirement for better in-vitro models that are compatible with high-throughput screening campaigns has led to the development of 3D cell cultures models, especially muliticellular spheroids, which retain many of the morphological and genetic traits of tumours.
Here we describe the formation of such spheroids by two methods: on ultra-low attachment plates and in semi-solid agarose. Both methods are compatible with 96- and 384-well microplate formats.

Integrating compound storage into automated laboratory workflows
James Craven, Simon Tullett

This poster discusses the benefits of comPOUND for automated sample storage and delivery. TTP Labtech’s pneumatic transport technology, lab2lab, integrates these stores with other instrumentation into managed, fully automated workflows, allowing the scientist to focus on research and data analysis.

Low cost, low footprint, expandable automated biobanking solutions
James Craven, Chris Morris, Maud Godfrey, Danielle Miller

This case study describes how TTP Labtech’s comPOUND storage modules have been employed by Abcam, a worldwide supplier of antibodies. Here, the turnaround time of sample placement and retrieval is an essential component for high quality service to its customers.

Gene Expression from Pseudourine and 5-Methylcytidine Modified Messenger RNA
Jiehua Zhou, Maggie L. Bobbin, Julie R. Escamilla-Powers, Anton P. McCaffrey and John J. Rossi

Study objective was to develop methodologies for gram scale synthesis of messenger RNA (mRNA) for gene therapy applications, as well as scalable purification methods that yield highly expressed, persistent and non-toxic mRNA.

ISMTR-283 Protects Human Bone Marrow Progenitors from the Lethal Effects of Ionizing Radiation
Clarke E, Traynor-Kaplan A

Bone Marrow (BM) is extremely susceptible to radiation damage. BM from matched donors is often used to ‘rescue’ patients following medical radiation for leukemia. However, in the event of accidental/environmental radiation exposure, the ability to identify appropriate donors in a timely manner is rarely possible. Using CFC assays, we evaluated a small molecule compound (ISMTR-283) for its potential to protect the marrow progenitor cells and microenvironment from radiation damage.

Analyzing Molecular Polar Surface Descriptors to Predict Blood-Brain Barrier Permeation
Sergey Shityakova, Winfried Neuhausa, Thomas Dandekarc and Carola Förstera

Permeation of active drugs across the vascular brain endothelium into the central nervous system (CNS) is controlled by the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Some molecular quantities like polar surface (PS) descriptors are of key interest to medicinal chemists to predict the BBB permeation fate for different drug-like chemical compounds.

The Mesenchymal Stem Cells Bioengineered Tissue Using Cobalt-60 Radiation
Mosca, RC., Isaac, C., Mathor, MB

The biological effects of gamma radiation by cobalt-60 sources on epidermal-dermal matrix have not been fully elucidated when mesenchymal stem cells cultured add in. This poster shows how scientists standardized the keratinocytes and adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC) culture procedure before constructing a bioengineered dermal-epidermal equivalent populated by keratinocytes and ADSC cultured cells.

Expression of Pluripotency-determining Factors in in vitro Fertilized Buffalo Embryos and Embryonic Stem Cells
T Anand, D Kumar, M S Chauhan, and P Palta

The POU octamer-binding domain transcription factor Oct-4, Stage-specific embryonic antigens (SSEAs), and Tumor rejection antigens (TRAs), are developmentally regulated during early embryogenesis.
