      • BioMarket Trends
      • Over $1 billion in annual revenue is generated from tests developed to diagnostically measure proteins in plasma. However, only a small number of proteins are routinely measured in plasma for diagnostic purposes. While the plasma proteome holds the ... more »
      • Maximizing Discovery Using Kinase
      • Kinases play a key role in many cellular signaling pathways and in several diseases, such as cancer and inflammation. Kinase inhibition assays comprise about 20–30% of current high-throughput screening drug discovery programs. Some of the most curre ... more »
      • Microarrays Find their Way into the Clinic
      • Microarrays have been a mainstay of the scientific research community for nearly a decade but given the more stringent demands for accuracy and reliability, have not been as closely embraced in the clinical arena. Arrays are, however, finding clinic ... more »
      • Microrarray Standards Are the Next Step
      • Elizabeth Lipp
      • Over the course of the last 10 years, the development of microarray technology has had significant influence on gene-expression research. However, it is experiencing the same growing pains that any new and upcoming technology faces—lack of reproduci ... more »

      • Flexible Protein Microarray Inkjet Printing
      • Since their inception in 1995, DNA microarrays have become the icon of the genomics revolution. Everyone with any interest has become familiar with the images of precise rows and columns of colored spots denoting levels of gene expression and latter ... more »
      • Rotating Bioreactors for Manufacturing
      • For most investigators the culture of mammalian cells has meant the use of traditional flasks or dishes. While this technique has proved useful for many studies, it is widely recognized that cells grown in a 2-D environment tend to dedifferentiate a ... more »
      • Streamlining HTS for Challenging Targets
      • Adenine and guanine nucleotides are interconverted by diverse proteins of therapeutic interest, including kinases, phosphodiesterases, membrane transporters, DNA-modifying enzymes, and molecular chaperonins. Detection of nucleotide products, usually ... more »
