The LSC-PM concept is introduced and its performances are characterized using a light-limited reaction as a probe to measure the increased photon flux to the reaction channels.
Firstly, by using blue LED light as light source, the wavelength conversion capabilities of the device are demonstrated with a 10-time increase in photon flux to the reaction mixture.
Secondly, the light transport within the waveguide is proved by a 6-fold increase in the reaction apparent kinetic in the LSC-PM compared to the non-doped analog.
Then, in solar simulated conditions, the LSC-PM with 200ppm dye-doping showed a 4-fold increased photon flux with respect to the non-doped control reactor.
Finally, a significant different between LSC-PM and a transparent reactor is observed also in an outdoor experiment with natural sunlight irradiation.
We utilized paired synthetic crRNAs coupled with our synthetic tracrRNA in cells transduced with lentiviral Cas9 to perform a functional knockout on hsa-miR-221. This three-part system (crRNA, tracrRNA and Cas9) has demonstrated efficient gene editing when used with only one guide RNA, but the goal was to use two crRNAs to remove the entire stem-loop.READ MORE
During early drug discovery, the study of metabolism plays an essential role in determining which drug candidates move forward into development and later stages. As an alternative to traditional Data Dependent Acquisition (DDA), the use of MSE/All Ions Fragmentation (AIF) has become common in metabolite identification workflows for the analysis of metabolic hot spots. Here we present a solution for analysis of MSE/AlF in metID studies.READ MORE
