Direct Targets Identification of a Bioactive Compound
Charnwood Molecular, Hybrigenics services SAS

Identifying protein partners of a small bioactive molecule is of great
interest in many aspects of life sciences and specifically in the drug
discovery and development process cycle. It is a support to (i) decipher
the mechanism of action after for example a “High Content” screening,
(ii) study “off-target” effects, (iii) adjust therapeutic indications and
clinical regimens of a drug and (iv) consider drug repositioning.

Stable Chloroplast: Myth or Reality?
South African Sugarcane Research Institute, School of Life Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal

Chloroplasts principally encode the photosynthetic machinery in Viridiplantae. It has long been accepted that in photosynthetic plants chloroplast genomic structure is uniquely stable as it is maternally and clonally inherited. The first chloroplast genomes sequenced supported this view. The current study was undertaken to address the potential issue of global chloroplast(in)stability.

Automated Illumina TruSeq® Nano DNA Sample Preparation
Tecan Group Ltd.

The TruSeq Nano DNA Sample Preparation Kit enables efficient investigation of samples where the amount of DNA available is limited. This low-input method generates excellent quality data from as little at 100 ng of DNA, allowing the study of samples with restricted DNA availability, for example from tumors, and helping to preserve precious sample material for use in future studies.
Double stranded DNA quantitation using Promega QuantiFluor® Dyes
Tecan Group Ltd.

Achieving selective and sensitive quantitation of double stranded DNA (dsDNA) using spectrophotometric methods can be problematic. Recognizing these difficulties, researchers have incorporated fluorescence-based quantitation techniques in their workflows to obtain the required sensitivity and target selectivity.
Simple sample preparation for the determination of vitamin D in serum by LC-MSMS
Tecan Group Ltd.

A growing number of laboratories have moved from the use of immunoassay methods to liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MSMS) for the determination of vitamin D. The advantage of the latter method is unparalleled specificity combined with high sensitivity, offering the potential for the determination of multiple analytes, such as 25OH-vitamin D3 and 25OH-vitamin D2.
Automated Sample Preparation of 25-OH-Vitamin D3/D2 from Serum with the AC Extraction Plate and the Tecan Freedom EVO® for the quantification by LC-MS/MS
Tecan Group Ltd.

There is an increasing demand for the determination of Vitamin D status which is based on the quantification of the two metabolites 25-OH-Vitamin D3/D2. Numerous laboratories have moved from the use of immunoassay methods to liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) because of its specificity combined with high sensitivity. Moreover LC-MS/MS offers the potential for multianalyte determination which is required for Vitamin D status determination.
Automated sample preparation for the determination of testosterone in serum by LC-MSMS

Colony Picking - fully automated screening of fungi
Tecan Group Ltd.

Manual screening processes are very costly and time consuming. This ambitious project for high throughput screening (HTS) of cellulase-producing fungal strains demonstrates the high capacity and unique features of the Freedom EVO colony picking workstation. The picking of fungi is more complex than for typical bacterial colonies, and requires advanced selection criteria to be combined with complex pipetting and a tip movement that mimics the manual picking process.
Automating ELISAs on Tecan’s Freedom EVO® using Optimiser™ technology from Siloam Biosciences
Tecan Group Ltd.

One of the challenges in life sciences research today is to discover methods for running key assays more quickly, more reliably and using lower volumes of reagents and sample, but still with improved sensitivity. One area where this particularly holds true is for traditional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), whose application provides a useful measurement of antigens, including cytokines and a host of other biomarkers.
Molecular indexing for improved RNA-Seq analysis
Bioo Scientific

Most modern methods for nucleic acid analysis require the use of enzyme processing, such as DNA polymerase reactions, in the sample preparation or measurement steps. Although necessary, these enzymatic steps introduce errors in the form of incorrect sequence and misrepresented copy number. NEXTflex™ qRNA-Seq™ Kit from Bioo Scientific adds no additional steps to the work flow, costs no more than a conventional library preparation kit and increases the precision of downstream analysis.
