Enzyme Kinetic Measurements for a Combinatorial Library of Inhibitors of Pseudomonas Elastase

Pseudomonas elastase (LasB) is a key drug target in various chronic and intractable infections. A library of 160 potential, in-house synthesised, elastase inhibitors were screened using a fluorescence assay with the internally quenched substrate Abz-Ala-Gly-Leu-Ala-Nba. Enzymatic kinetic measurements were done on a FLUOstar OPTIMA and Km and Vmax values were calculated for each inhibitor using the MARS Data Analysis software.

Analysis of migration using the OrisTM Cell Migration Assay-TriCoated kit on the POLARstar Omega

The Oris™ Cell Migration Assays from Platypus offer certain advantages over traditional migration assays. Especially the TriCoated kits enable the researcher to test the effect of different extracellular matrix components like Collagen I or Fibronectin on migration. In this application note we show the real-time monitoring of cell migration using a POLARstar Omega from BMG LABTECH equipped with a CO2 gas vented system.

Cellular Dopamine and Intracellular Calcium Signaling Using the Next Generation HTS Microplate Reader

Two cell-based signaling assays from Invitrogen, Fluo-4 Direct™ Calcium Assay and Tango™-bla U2OS GPCR Assay, were performed on the PHERAstar FS HTS instrument. The PHERAstar FS has several unique features that enhance the performance of these assays including direct optic bottom reading, high resolution cell layer scanning, injection at the point of measurement and dual emission detection.

Monitoring Bacterial Cell-to-Cell Communication “Quorum sensing” Using FLUOstar OPTIMA

Bacteria can monitor and respond to changes to environmental conditions via a cell density process known as quorum sensing. Bacteria use this process to monitor their community by producing, detecting and responding to low molecular mass signal molecules, called autoinducers. Effects on quorum sensing were investigated by measuring growth and bioluminescence of Vibrio fischeri. The FLUOstar OPTIMA was utilized to measure absorbance and luminescence in parallel.

Functional Screening of recombinant CHO-M1 cells using the PHERAstar from BMG LABTECH

Functional screening of single cell clones was achieved using the HTRF® IP-One assay. The HTRF® assay from Cisbio proved to be a fast and reliable method to directly screen a large number of stable transfected single cell clones. Carbachol dose response curves with fresh cells from a growing culture and frozen instant cells showed similar results for EC50 and signal-to-blank values.

alamarBlue® Assay for Assessment of Cell Proliferation using the FLUOstar OPTIMA

The alamarBlue® cell proliferation assay is based on a reducing environment that indicates metabolic active cells. Active cells are able to convert resazurin into the resorufin. Resazurin is blue and non-fluorescent whereas resorufin is red and highly fluorescent; therefore a fluorescent and a colorimetric detection are possible. This application notes focuses on the quantification of cell proliferation in a Human Osteoblast cell culture by measuring alamarBlue® fluorescence on the FLUOstar OPTIMA microplate reader.

A DELFIA® time-resolved fluorescence cell-mediated cytotoxicity assay performed on the PHERAstar

A europium based time-resolved fluorescence cytotoxicity assay was used to study the loss of membrane integrity of target cells. For that cells are loaded with a fluorescence enhancing ligand that penetrates the cell membrane quickly and is hydrolized to form a hydrophilic ligand that is released from cells only after cytolysis. The data obtained with BMG LABTECH´s PHERAstar shows that estrogen dramatically reduces cell induced by natural killer cells.
