Trevigen Launches LDEV Free Basement Membrane Extract

03-28-2008 03:17 PM CET | Science & Education

Press release from: Trevigen, Inc.

Trevigen launches LDVE Free Basement Membrane Extract within its Cultrex® product line of Cell Differentiation and Angiogenesis products. Basement Membrane Extract (BME) can be used for promotion and maintenance of a differentiated phenotype in a variety of cell cultures including primary epithelial cells, endothelial cells, and smooth muscle cells.

Trevigen’s LDVE Free designation means that in addition to standard sterility, endotoxin and MAP testing, the BME is tested by PCR and is clear of 31 pathogens and viruses, including LDEV. Each lot is strictly qualified in biological performance assays. LDVE Free BME is offered in normal and reduced growth factor form, with and without phenol red, and is ideal for in vivo murine research work and other work requiring BME free from viruses, bacteria and mycoplasma.

The many applications for Cultrex Basement Membrane Extract, require different thicknesses and concentrations. Examples include use of diluted extract at 5 mg/ml for cell propagation and differentiation studies. Basement Membrane Extract is ideal for Tube Assay, Ring Assay, cell invasion studies, in vivo and in vitro angiogenesis assays, tumorgenicity and 3D Culture Assays.

This product is made and marketed under patent license from the United States Public Health Service. Ref. U.S. Patent 4,829,000 issued May 9, 1989 and U.S. Patent 5,158,874 issued October 27,1992, all entitled Reconstituted Membrane Complex with Biological Activity.

HT PARP in vivo Pharmacodynamic Assay II
Trevigen announces a validated assay, with higher sensitivity and pre-coated antibody plates to measure the effectiveness of PARP inhibitors in cell and tissue lysates for anticancer drug screening. Pharmacodynamic (PD) assays have recently been developed and employed early in the drug screening process to assess the ability of potential drug candidates to affect molecular targets. These assays have the advantages of performing molecular proof-of-concept investigations at an early stage such as
Trevigen Releases CultreCoat® Cell Adhesion Assays
Trevigen announces the release of seven new coated well assay kits for cell adhesion studies. A cell’s ability to adhere to extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins is a necessary precursor to cell invasion, and this process also modulates morphogenesis, wound healing, proliferation, differentiation, and survival. Researchers studying cancer cell behavior or developing cancer therapeutics study cell adhesion with various proteins, recognizing that manipulation of cell adhesion to the extracellular environment may
Trevigen Announces the First Standardized Comet Assay Electrophoresis System
The comet assay is the only direct method for the detection of DNA damage in cells. It is used in cancer research, in genotoxicity studies on environmental mutagens, and for screening compounds for cancer therapeutics. Based on single cell gel electrophoresis in a controlled pH environment, the assay allows the integrity of stained nuclear DNA to be examined and measured. Until now, a lack of standardization in electrophoresis equipment, control cells,
Trevigen Announces a Highly Sensitive, Fluorescent, One Hour PARP Inhibition Ass …
Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase, through ribosylation of nuclear proteins, converts DNA Damage into intracellular signals that actuate either DNA repair or cell death. The development of inhibitors to PARP is of ever increasing interest in the drug discovery community since they can be used as modulators of DNA repair mediated resistance to cytotoxic cancer therapeutics. Until now, commercially available PARP assay kits required multiple steps and were time consuming. Trevigen overcomes these
