Protein array-based screening of autoantibody signatures
Poster Nov 04, 2009
The evidence for an association between autoimmune diseases and chronic HCV infection has been clearly established. To this aim, a protein array was employed to analyze serum samples of HCV patients w/wo autoimmune complications, of patients with autoimmune hepatitis but not infected with HCV and of healthy donors as controls. A panel of autoantigens able to discriminate among the three groups of patients was identified for potential use as biomarkers.
Is Oxford Nanopore Technology Ready for Clinical Diagnostics?Poster
Our objective is to validate diagnostic services using Oxford Nanopore’s Minion in the first instance and to evaluate the cost and performance compared to existing sequencing technology in areas such as tumour DNA sequencing (and circulating tumour DNA), virology, microbiology, genetics and HLA-typing.READ MORE
CiPA Phase 2 Study: validation of an automated microelectrode array (MEA) assay of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocyte electrophysiology for cardiac safety evaluationPoster
These results support the use of hSC-CM and MEA technology for preclinical assessment of proarrhythmic risk within the proposed CiPA paradigm, and, more generally, demonstrate that automation of the CM-MEA assay can achieve high reliability and throughput for cardiac risk assessment in vitro.READ MORE
