Optimization of Binding Interaction Studies

New Approach Advocates Interspot Referencing Using Multiplexed SPR Arrays

  • Conclusion

    Interspot referencing using multiplexed SPR arrays to study binding interactions can produce kinetic data that are as accurate as that generated using channel referencing, allowing all interaction spots on the array to be used. The resulting increase in throughput can be critical to such large-scale applications as screening of hybridomas supernatants, evaluating large numbers of drug lead candidates, or optimization of affinity protein purification methods.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
