Cisbio Bioassays Marks Next Step in Development of Tag-lite™ GPCR Investigation Platform
News Sep 30, 2009
Cisbio Bioassays, a member of IBA group and global developer of HTRF® (Homogeneous Time-Resolved Fluorescence) technology and services
used in assay development and drug screening, today announced that it has extended its Tag-lite™ cell surface receptor platform with the introduction of a comprehensive catalogue of ligands and plasmids.
The new catalogue marks the next step in the company’s development of a complete array of tools for G-Protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR) investigation and, more specifically, of Tag-lite, its homogeneous and non-radioactive
alternative for the study of cell surface receptor dimerization and ligand binding.

New Ovarian Cancer TargetNews
Researchers have found a prescription drug, Calcitriol, approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of calcium deficiency and kidney diseases, may increase the likelihood of surviving ovarian cancer. This new study opens a potential avenue for treating ovarian cancer. Since Calcitriol is an FDA-approved drug, no additional research is needed before the drug can advance to human clinical trials for ovarian cancer.READ MORE
Novel Microplate 3D Bioprinting Platform for Engineering Muscle and Tendon TissuesNews
There is a strong need for medication that treats age-related degenerative muscle and tendon diseases. A critical bottleneck in the discovery and development of novel drugs for skeletal muscle is the lack of efficient and robust functional in vitro assays for compound screening. Researchers describe the development of a novel screening platform with automated production of 3D muscle- and tendon–like tissues using 3D bioprinting.READ MORE
