Assay format for CultreCoat® Cell Adhesion Assays

Assay format for 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 significantly impact cell activities. What is desired then is an assay system providing a variety of ECM proteins in a quantitative, high throughput format.

Trevigen answers this need with a simple, standardized, high throughput adhesion assay format offering 96 well plates coated with Basement Membrane Extract, Laminin I, Collagen I, Collagen IV, Fibronectin, Vitronectin, or an array of all six ECM proteins. A black stripwell format minimizes background providing increased sensitivity. Calcein labeling allows direct comparison between the number of cells loaded and the number of cells that adhere, and additional controls are provided for determining background and non-specific binding.

Highly qualified ECM proteins are also available separately from Trevigen.

Trevigen, Inc. focuses on the development, manufacturing and marketing of technology and products for cancer research, emphasizing apoptosis, DNA damage and repair, and cancer cell behavior.

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 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
Trevigen announces the release of Four New Assay Kits for 3-D Cell Proliferation
Many scientists are converting from growing cells in a traditional 2-D Monolayer on plastic surfaces with tissue culture medium to “3-D” Culture. In 3-D Culture, cells are grown in a microenvironment of specialized proteins which mimics in vivo conditions and allows the cells to organize into complex structures rather than uniform monolayers. Various types of cells require different specialized proteins for optimal growth conditions and these extracellular matrices can play

Biomarker Assay Market Supply Demand 2016-2020
Biomarkers are defined as measurable indicators of a particular disease or condition that are evaluated to diagnose and confirm the presence or absence of regular biological processes, pathogens and efficacy of pharmacological intervention. Biomarkers can be chemicals and compounds that are freely available in the body and are present in greater or lower concentrations as compared with control (normal) state. The concept is used on various disease areas within healthcare
