The method for generating specific sequences of droplets is previously described. Now several modes are demonstrated to enable a wider range of applications.
• Sequences of droplets can be generated from 24 wells.
• Droplets can be merged pairwise.
• Nanoliter droplets can be split into picoliter droplets.
• Our system enables combinatorial screening in nanolitre volumes and we have demonstrated its application to drug screening whether in vitro or in vivo.
• Encapsulated S. Cerevisiae cells showed good growth for all cell strains overnight.
• C. elegans were also encapsulated and were stable in droplets overnight.
Fc Effector Bioassays for Rapid and Quantitative Measurement of ADCC and ADCP Mechanisms of ActionPoster
Drug developers are rapidly adopting Fc effector function reporter-based bioassays to measure antibody Fc functions such as ADCC and ADCP activity during the development of therapeutic antibodies. Here we show application of a suite of FcgR Reporter Bioassays to elucidate and characterize antibody MOA.READ MORE
Bioluminescent Kinase Profiling Systems For Characterizing Small Molecule Kinase InhibitorsPoster
In order to profile compounds against a broad panel of kinases, in-house profiling requires rigorous kinase assay development.READ MORE
Immunotherapy on Chip: “Under the Microscope” Drug-induced Modulation of the Immune ResponsePoster
The immune system is a striking example of an integrated information system, engaged in coordinated host-protective activities. Organs-on-chip approach (OOC) models allow the direct simultaneous observation of hundreds of different cells, moving, interacting and responding to signals coming from the microenvironment nearby, that give access to a number of parameters describing the system that must be properly measured and elaborated.READ MORE
