|Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Are We There Yet?|
Shalmali Pendse, Anuradha Vaidya
This review poster comprises of the overall development of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) as a therapy for variety of immuno compromised diseases since 1950 till date. It starts with the general information about hematopoietic stem cells, its sources as well as the types of HSCT. It also contains the role of mesenchymal stem cells in HSCT along with its present scenario and it ends with the future directions regarding HSCT.
|Developing a digital histopathology platform to support an international diabetes biobank|
Sucaet Yves,. Smeets Silke, Waelput Wim, In’t Veld P.eter
An online histopathology platform combines tissue samples and online digital histopathology images. We combine detailed online patient data with whole slide images. This allows potential users of the tissue bank material to select the tissue and patient characteristics before entering into a collaborative agreement. The digital histopathology platform also allows different pathology laboratories in Belgium to discuss histopathological slides, and facilitates research collaboration.
|Human Cardiomyocytes Derived from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells: High Throughput and High Content Assessment of Cardiac Toxicity and Drug Efficacy by Monitoring Cytosolic Free Calcium Transients|
1Kettenhofen R, 1Duenbostell A, 2Niedereichholz T, 3D’Angelo JM, 4Horai H, 5Schwengberg S, 1Bohlen H, 6Licher T"
Introduction of selected, pure human cardiomyocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSCM) into a calcium transient imaging high throughput screening (HTS) assay to assess cardiotoxicity and drug efficacies.
|Characterisation & Potential Applications of Human iPS Cell Derived Neural Progenitor Cells |
Wei J1., Gibbons G1., Lopez Alcantara S2., Dale T2., González Rueda A3., Paulsen O3. & Cox C1.
We characterised iPS cell-derived human neural progenitor cells (hNPCs) and their progeny produced using optimised methods to examine their suitability for neurobiology research.
|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.
