Promega’s Multiplexed Cell Viability and Apoptosis Assays Performed on the PHERAstar
Poster May 02, 2007
Tracy Worzella and Brad Larson
Today’s high-throughput screening facilities face increasing demands to generate more information from their existing compound libraries. In this poster, we demonstrate the combination of several Promega cell-based assays (CellTiter-Blue®, Apo-One® and Caspase-Glo® 3/7) multiplexed in both low-volume 384 and 1536-well plate formats. The BMG LABTECH PHERAstar microplate reader is used to record both luminescence and fluorescence, depending on the multiplex combination.
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
