Microfluidic Platform for Point-of-Care Blood Typing
We have developed a microfluidic platform for mass sensitive analysis of whole blood that allows fast and reliable Point-of-Care blood typing of the AB0 system requiring small sample volumes. Potential application areas of the microfluidic platform include emergency medical aid, clinics and doctor's surgeries.
Communicating Drug Discovery Data Efficiently and Effectively
In this poster, we present IDBS’ ActivityBase™ - a single, integrated framework that brings together biological and chemical information. The software integrates with Oracle®, the industry standard relational database and familiar Microsoft® applications such as Word and Excel. With all discovery data in one system, the communication of information between scientists is simplified - enabling better, faster decisions and the need for IT support to integrate disparate systems is eliminated.
A Strategy to Investigate Potential Pro-Arrhythmic Effects of Compounds During the Drug Discovery and Development Process
For pharmaceutical companies it is not only essential to identify HERG interacting compounds early during the drug discovery and development process, but also to understand potential effects of compounds on the cardiac action potential. This helps to increase the safety for patients, and to avoid the costs of unsuccessful projects in later phases.
Computational Model of the Anthracycline-Binding Site in Carbonyl and Aldo-Keto Reductases: a Structural Basis for Designing Inhibitors
The aim of this work was to investigate the interaction mechanism of the anthracyclines with the cytosolic reductases. Predictive models have been constructed by means of a molecular docking study, that offer utility in guiding the rational design of inhibitors of reductase activity.
