Integrating compound storage into automated laboratory workflows
Poster Jun 12, 2013
James Craven, Simon Tullett
The demand for automated storage facilities for a wide range of compounds, small molecules, fragments and RNAi libraries and biologics is rapidly increasing as sample libraries expand across a range of industries and applications.
TTP Labtech’s comPOUND® offers robust storage for chemical and biological samples, which has been successfully employed for over a decade. comPOUND modules have been relied on by large pharmaceutical companies, academic research facilities and hospitals, as well as small biotech and contract research organisations who are committed to providing rapid throughput and delivery of high quality samples.
There has been considerable investment in automated storage facilities for compound and biological libraries, alongside automated instrumentation for liquid handling, HTS, HCS and analysis. Despite this, the process of sample transfer between such instrumentation still relies on manual effort. Often samples need to be transferred over considerable distances between storage rooms or even laboratories. On arrival, scientists need to prepare samples and place tubes or microplates into automated liquid handling platforms or assay instrumentation.
This poster discusses the benefits of comPOUND for automated sample storage and delivery. TTP Labtech’s pneumatic transport technology, lab2lab, enables integration of these stores with other instrumentation into managed, fully automated workflows - from sample storage to liquid handling, assay set-up, experimental analysis and QC. This allows the scientist to concentrate on research and data analysis.
Depressive Symptoms Related to Biological Markers of Immune Functioning among Young People with HIVPoster
Youth living with HIV (YLWH) are at risk for depression. This study aimed to identify trends in depressive symptoms for YLWH in a specialty-care clinic and follow up clinical treatment procedures.READ MORE
An Emerging Phenotype of Partial RAG 1/2 Deficiency Among Young Children with Autoimmunity and Viral InfectionsPoster
We describe the natural history of a cohort of 12 patients with confirmed partial RAG1/2 mutations and autoimmunity at a young age. We were seeking the link between viral infections and autoimmunity and tested candidate biomarkers that may reflect the underlying RAG1/2 protein deficiency.READ MORE
Magnetic-microcontact printing based ECM nano-patterning allows homogeneous controlling of cell growth and behaviorPoster
Magnetic – microcontact printing of extracellular matrix proteins (ECM) results in cell microarrays (CMA) showing homogeneous cell growth and attachment on defined patterns. This greatly reduces bias in the analysis of cell responses to toxins, drugs or other stimuli.READ MORE
