New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.

Assay Optimization and Profiling in uHTS Format

Abstract

We demonstrate the use of Promega’s Kinase-Glo® Plus Luminescent Kinase Assay for miniaturized kinase assays using Deerac Fluidics’ Equator™ HTS liquid handling system. The Kinase-Glo® Plus Assay is a homogeneous method of measuring kinase activity by quantifying ATP in solution following a kinase reaction. The Equator™ HTS is a noncontact liquid dispenser capable of delivering volumes from 20µl down to 50nl.

Because assay development and screening are key uses for miniaturized assays, we show the Equator™ HTS can be used to optimize Kinase-Glo® reactions, and screen for kinase activity. We use the Equator™ HTS to titrate kinases and substrates to determine optimal concentrations for subsequent screening activities in 1536-well format. A panel of kinases and compounds are counter-screened for kinase selectivity profiling. 24-point serial titration is performed to determine potency. Data show that miniaturization of the Kinase- Glo® Plus Assay does not compromise assay quality. The combination of Kinase-Glo® Plus and the Equator ™ HTS provides an integrated solution for kinase drug discovery.
