|mosquito® Crystal and mosquito® LCP: fast, reliable automation of protein crystallisation drop set-up |
Joby Jenkins, David Smith
This poster demonstrates the ability of TTP Labtech’s mosquito® Crystal and mosquito® LCP to address the issues inherent in the automated set-up of protein crystallisation screen trials, without needing constant instrument configuration changes.
|Phytochip: a New Tool to Study the Diversity of Toxic Phytoplankton in the Bay of Seine|
Noyer Charlotte, Anton Leberre Véroniqueand Dreanno Catherine
The phytochip seems to be a promising method for the identification of toxic phytoplankton and could be a useful tool to help environmental monitoring.
|Protein Microarrays for Characterisation of the Bacillus anthracis ‘infectome’|
Stephen Kidd, Karen Kempsell, Rebecca Ingram, Pierre Watteau, Daniel Altmann, Michael Elmore, Sue Charlton, Bassam Hallis and Richard Vipond
These studies provide an interesting insight into the transcriptome of virulent B. anthracis in a host infection environment.
|Digital Dispensing for Direct Dilution: New Flexibility in Dose-Response Analyses|
Jeff Nielsen, Ken Ward, Christie Dudenhoefer, David Ochs, Joshua Yu, and Kevin
In addition to the economic advantages of improving speed, precision, compound usage and waste, digital dispensing offers scientific advantages. This includes making the execution of complicated experiments easy and fast.
|Identification and Characterization of Strain Specific Drug Target by Subtractive Genome Analysis of Methicillin Resistance Staphylococcus aureus|
Kiran Saeed and Reaz Uddin
This study aimed to identify and characterize strain specific essential protein targets, which will eventually help in the identification of druggable proteins in two strains of MRSA by using different Bioinformatic tools and databases. We adopting a subtractive genome approach within the domain of Computational Biology.

|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.
|Monitoring Protein Synthesis in Living Cells With Fluorescent Labeled tRNA FRET Pairs|
Zeev Smilansky, Sima Barhoom, Ian Farrel, Dvir Dahary, Andrew Leask, Peter Vanderklish, Marcelo Ehrlich, Barry S. Cooperman and Orna Elroy-Stein
We transfect cells with tRNAs labeled as FRET donors and acceptors. A FRET signal is generated only when a donor labeled tRNA and an acceptor-labeled tRNA come in close contact (< 7 nM), as they do on the ribosome during the elongation cycle. The intensity of the FRET signal correlates with the number of ribosomes engaged in protein synthesis, providing a real-time, live-cell assay for measuring rates of protein synthesis.
|Effect of Heat and Cold Treatment on Germination and Early Growth Stage of Terminal Heat Tolerant (WH 730) and Intolerant (RAJ 4014) Wheat Genotypes|
Om Prakash Gupta
Being second important staple food crop globally, wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production is largely limited by heat and cold stress which adversely affects the germination, crop growth and development. Terminal heat stress is a major problem for wheat production which severely affects the grain yield.
