High Throughput Mass Spectrometry-Based Screening Assay Trends
Dr John Comley provides an insight into HT MS-based screening with a focus on future user requirements and preferences.
Kitchen Utensils Can Spread Bacteria Between Foods
In a recent study researchers found that produce that contained bacteria would contaminate other produce items through the continued use of knives or graters—the bacteria would latch on to the utensils commonly found in consumers' homes and spread to the next item.

New Analysis Technique for Chiral Activity in Molecules
Professor Hyunwoo Kim of the Chemistry Department and his research team have developed a technique that can easily analyze the optical activity of charged compounds by using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Measuring microRNAs in Blood to Speed Cancer Detection
A simple, ultrasensitive microRNA sensor holds promise for the design of new diagnostic strategies and, potentially, for the prognosis and treatment of pancreatic and other cancers.
Best Test to Diagnose Strangles in Horses Identified
New research by Dr. Ashley Boyle of New Bolton Center’s Equine Field Service team shows that the best method for diagnosing Strangles in horses is to take samples from a horse’s guttural pouch and analyze them using a loop-mediated amplification (LAMP) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.

Automated Dispensation of Yttrium Oxide SPA Imaging Beads, into 1536-Well Plates Using Deerac Fluidics’ Equator™ HTS Pipetting System

Deerac Fluidics


The drive towards miniaturization within the pharmaceutical field has created a need for liquid handling technologies that accurately deliver low volume reagents to high-density well plates. GE Healthcare’s Scintillation Proximity Assay (SPA) provides an innovative approach for assay  development and biochemical screening that allows the rapid and sensitive measurement of a wide variety of molecular interactions in a homogeneous system.

Here we demonstrate the successful combination of the use of the Equator HTS pipetting system to dispense Streptavidin coupled Yttrium Oxide (YOx) SPA Imaging beads. 2ul of YOx beads were dispensed into1536-well plates containing an excess of 3H-biotin. Plates were read on LEADseeker™ Multimodality Imaging System and analyzed for accuracy and reproducibility. CVs of 6-7% were obtained. Outliers were within spec of 10 or less per 1000 wells.

These results demonstrate the efficacy of the Equator™ HTS with built-in stirred reservoir for the automation of the dispensation of YOx beads to high density plate formats.
