A Unified Software Platform for Laboratory Informatics
Reported here are capabilities in automated workflows involving analytical data with chemical structures. Specifically described is automated homogenization of data from a set of instruments, including NMR structure verification, as one solution.
The Case for CASE: Computer-Assisted Structure Elucidation
Modern CASE systems such as Structure Elucidator Suite provide the necessary capability to accurately elucidate a novel chemical structure for complex molecules based on readily available NMR data sets. This allows organizations to avoid expensive, labor-intensive, and time-consuming synthetic efforts.
Addressing False Positive Variants Arising from Pseudogenes
Clinical genetic testing has been transformed in recent years by the introduction of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS).
PredRet: Prediction of Retention Time by Direct Mapping between Multiple Chromatographic Systems
Retention time (RT) information is under-utilized in LC-MS based metabolomics and sharing of RTs between systems is not currently possible. PredRet is a new system that allows highly accurate mapping and prediction of RTs between LC systems.
Building a Digital Pathology Ecosystem for Education and Research
We wanted to build a core digital pathology infrastructure to support different use cases. Various images platforms needed to be accessible through a single access point, and support different user profiles.
CellTiter-Glo® 2.0: A Novel Luminescent Cell Viability Assay with Greatly Enhanced Storage Stability
Here we report on the attributes of a novel ATP detection reagent for cell viability with all of the assay performance of the previous CellTiter-Glo® Reagent, but now with markedly enhanced stability as a single component in a liquid format. These new features provide for much greater ease-of-use in that storage of the reagent at 4°C eliminates the requirement for reagent thawing and minimizes temperature equilibration time.

Predicting Regioselectivity and Lability of Cytochrome P450 Metabolism using Quantum Mechanical Simulations
Improved Small RNA Library Preparation Workflow for Next-Generation Sequencing
We describe an optimized workflow which suppresses adapter dimers, works with low RNA input and eliminates the need for a gel purification step.
Knockdown of Long Noncoding RNAs in Breast Cancer
RNAi global collaboration study using Lincode siRNA in a primary screen of tumor and nontumor breast cell lines. Hundreds of lncRNAs are found to affect viability and cell morphology of breast cancer. Presented at Keystone Symposia on Long Noncoding RNAs: From Evolution to Function, Mar 15 - Mar 20, 2015.
Non-invasive Liquid Biopsy
Paramagnetic Dynabeads® magnetic beads provide a versatile, automation friendly tool for fast sensitive and high throughput isolation that can be tailored to isolate specific circulating biomarkers such as cells, exosomes and nucleic acids.
