Performing ADCC Reporter Bioassay with an Environmentally Controlled Microplate Reader
Tecan Group Ltd.

The Promega ADCC Reporter Bioassay provides effector and target cells in frozen, thaw-and-use format, removing the need for isolating or culturing cells in order to perform the assay. Reporter induction requires a six-hour to overnight incubation in a standard cell culture incubator. The CO2 and temperature control features of the Tecan Infinite® 200 PRO with GCM allow the assay induction to be performed without the requirement for a cell culture incubator.
Creating dose-response curves for cell-based and biochemical assays with the HP D300 Digital Dispenser
Tecan Group Ltd.

Small molecule drug discovery relies on the evaluation of one compound against another compound. Measurement of the activity of the small molecule against a target must be standardized by determining the IC50 or EC50 value using does response curve. The classical method of generating a dose-response curve is via serial dilution; however this approach has a number of drawbacks. Today, there is an alternative solution which eliminates these limitations: the HP D300 Digital Dispenser.
