Quantitative Cell-based Bioassays for Individual and Combination Immune Checkpoint Immunotherapy Targets

The human immune system is comprised of a complex network of immune checkpoint receptors that are promising new immunotherapy targets for the treatment of a variety of diseases including cancer and autoimmune-mediated disorders.

Applications of chemically modified synthetic guide RNA for CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing

Our results indicate that MS modifications are required for experiments with co-electroporation of Cas9 mRNA and synthetic gRNA, yet have no impact on editing efficiency when delivered with lipid-based transfection reagents.

Optimized Workflow for Single Cell Copy Number Profiling Using High Resolution Oligo CGH Arrays

Here we describe GenetiSure Pre-Screen, a same day, cost-effective, analysis workflow that combines whole genome amplification (WGA) with copy number (CN) profiling using high-resolution oligo CGH microarrays.

Workshop report: Bioinformatics meets digital pathology

Pathologists are the guardians of large quantities of high-resolution
imaging material, that is barely noticed by bioinformatics today. Yet this (annotated) material can be of huge contributing value to any research project, as pathology preserves topological tissue features, and can help explain difficult phenomena such as tumor heterogeneity. The goal is then to bridge research methods and materials from the bioinformatics community with the (digital) pathology community.

Building and deploying digital pathology infrastructure for a heterogeneous user base

Too often, image analysis and data/image mining projects remain stuck in
microenvironments because they are limited by vendorspecific
solutions that neither scale nor interact with material from other departments or institutions. Successful rollout of digital histopathology therefore requires more than a whole slide scanner. At Brussels Free
University (VUB), we wanted to provide a core digital pathology infrastructure that can support a range of different use cases.

A Novel Cell-Free DNA Extraction System for Cancer Diagnostics

We developed a magnetic bead-based cfDNA extraction kit and integrated it into the automated qPCR- and NGS-based IVD workflows. In this study we are compering this magnetic beads-based cfDNA extraction system with a column-based method.

BAP1 Immunohistochemistry and p16 FISH in the Diagnosis of Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma

In order to differentiate peritoneal malignant mesothelioma (PMM) from primary peritoneal serous carcinoma (PPSC) and reactive mesothelial hyperplasia (RMH), we used immunohistochemistry to examine for BAP1, and FISH to examine for homozygous deletion of p16.

Blood Transcriptomic Diagnosis of Active TB with Five Genes

This study aimed to identify the minimal set of genes that can accurately diagnose active TB, both pulmonary and extrapulmonary, and evaluate their specificity.

A Novel Benchtop Time-of-Flight GC-MS System for High Performance Analysis of Human Urine

A workflow was developed and implemented for the effective comparison of urine. It involved the preparation of stable compounds through derivatization, data acquisition using a high performance benchtop TOFMS, comprehensive data processing (NonTarget Deconvolution™), and quick retrospective analysis of rich datasets using Target Analyte Finding.
