DETERMINATION OF THE QUALITY OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS IN PAIN KILLERS USING GC-MS
Elizabeth N.M Murago1, Nathan Oyaro1, Anthony N. Gachanja, Onditi O. Anam, Felix M. Mawili, Steve Lancaster

From this study, the pain killers sampled were found to have large error bars suggesting that there exist counterfeit drugs in the market. The brands mostly affected for analysis of acetaminophen were panadol, action, P500, P5500, elymol and neladol. The error bars for caffeine analysis were quite low indicating that all tablets either counterfeit or original maintained the same amount of this active ingredient.

Human iPSC-derived hepatocytes and cardiomyocytes for drug toxicity testing
AnnandRR; Vardaro R; Hamilton B; Akakira R; Tamura K; Yoshida S; Lin YC; Toyoda D; Kogami H; Okuda Y; Watanabe T; Inamura M

Human iPS-derived hepatocytes (ReproHepato™) and cardiomyocytes (ReproCardio 2™) are useful for in vitro toxicity assays.

Improved Small RNA Library Preparation Workflow for Next-Generation Sequencing
Sabrina Shore, Jordana Henderson, Anton McCaffrey, Gerald Zon, Richard Hogrefe

We describe an optimized small RNA NGS library prep workflow using chemically modified adapters which suppresses adapter dimers, allows for RNA inputs down to 1 ng and eliminates the need for a gel purification step, thus allowing full automation not previously possible.

Flexible automated platform for blood group genotyping on DNA microarrays
S. Paris1, D. Rigal1, V. Barlet1, M. Verdier1, N. Coudurier2, P. Bailly3, J.-C. Brès1,4

The purpose of this project was to set up and validate a flexible robotic platform using 96-well DNA microarray for multiplex blood group genotyping.

Targeting Cancer Stem Cell-Related miRNAs for Prostate Cancer Therapy
ANSHIKA NIKITA SINGH, MEGHNA BARUAH, NEETI SHARMA

The poster focuses on the pivotal function of miRNAs in tumorigenesis by regulation of self renewal and apoptosis via cancer stem cell signalling pathways with special focus on their regulation of Epithelial to Mesenchymal transition in metastatic prostate cancer.

Identification of microRNA targets using microRNA modulation techniques and gene expression arrays
Emily M. Anderson, Maren Mayer, Kevin Sullivan, Barbara Robertson, Žaklina Strezoska, Annaleen Vermeulen, and Devin Leake

By examining the overlap of messages down-regulated by miRNA mimics and up-regulated by miRNA inhibitors, we robustly identify miRNA-regulated messages, many of which have canonical seed matches and some which are not identied by standard target prediction programs.

Droplet-on-Demand Platform for Biochemical Screening & Drug Discovery
L.D. van Vliet1*, F. Gielen1, A. Sinha2, B.T. Koprowski3, J.B. Edel4, X.Niu5, A.J. deMello3, F. Hollfelder1, & J. Motschman2

To demonstrate droplet on demand applications towards study of biological entities encapsulated in nanoliter droplets. Interfacing a droplet on demand platform with microfluidic chips allows for merging and dilution of droplets. This feature is applied to encapsulate yeast cells (S. cerevisiae) and multicellular organisms (C. elegans).

Direct Targets Identification of a Bioactive Compound
Sylvain Blanc, Paul Bradley, Marie-Edith Gourdel, Michael Cholay, Gisèle Guimèse, Mike Mckenzie, George Nasi, Jean-Christophe and Barbara Ruggiero

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.

3D-Tissue/ Whole-blood Co-culture Models Combined with Multi-Analyte Profile (MAP) Analyses for In-vivo-like Immunopharmacology
Stein GM, Joos T, Schmolz M

Human Organotypic Test (HOT) Systems aim at in-vivo like substance characterisation of all preparations meant to act on the human immune system.

A multiplexed amplicon sequencing technology for FFPE and circulating, cell-free DNA
Laurie Kurihara, Catherine Couture, Julie Laliberte, Sukhinder Sandhu, Jonathan Irish, Tim Harkins and Vladimir Makarov

A novel amplicon approach allowing for hundreds of amplicons to be multiplexed in a single tube with a two workflow from sample to sequencer.
