Promega’s Multiplexed Luciferase Reporter and Cell Viability Assays performed on the PHERAstar
Poster May 02, 2007

By multiplexing a reporter assay (EnduRen™, ViviRen™) with a cell viability assay (CellTiter-Glo®), it is possible to determine if reporter response variations are due to changes in cell number and health. In this poster, we demonstrate the combination of several Promega cell-based assays multiplexed in both low-volume 384- and 1536-well plate formats using the BMG LABTECH PHERAstar microplate reader to record luminescence.
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
