High Density Microarray services for powerful proteomics studies

14/11/2017 BY ISABELLE NOBIRON

tebu-bio has just been appointed by RayBiotech as one of only 3 companies worldwide to perform contract research on their recently developed higher density proteomics tools. If your aim is to fish for biomarkers with a very broad array of proteins, the newly released high density human, mouse or rat microarrays are a very good pick for you. These arrays provide the broader range of analytes on the market (1000 for human, 200 for mouse and 67 for rat)... [ Read more ]

Four new validated 3D Tissue models for more accurate in-vivo like data

23/11/2017 BY FREDERIC SAMAZAN

In the field of Drug Development, 3D cell culture models such as spheroids or organoids currently appear as one of the best solutions to obtain accurate and physiological  in vitro data, closest to what occurs in the human body. As Drug Delivery in the human body is a dynamic process, Synvivo have combined a microfluidics pattern with 3D tissue models to provide an efficient and physiological platform for cell based assays for various applications, such as Drug Discovery and Delivery research, ADME-Tox and many others....

Bioactive neuronal lipid mediators: a focus on Synaptamide

27/11/2017 BY XAVIER FAUSSADIER

Focus Biomolecules produces a broad range of bioactive lipid mediators as well as many small molecule inhibitors of numerous lipid metabolic pathways for use as cellular probes.  These can be supplied as individual products or in a library format. Pathways include Anandamide, Lipo-amino acid, Prostaglandin, Leukotriene, Sphingolipid, Fatty Acid, Cholesterol and more. In this post, let's take a look at Synaptamide, an anandamide-like mediator biosynthesized from docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the brain. DHA participates in various cellular events including...

HeLa cells: the first cell line

28/11/2017 BY XAVIER FAUSSADIER

If you work in Biology, you've most certainly heard of HeLa cells, as they have been around for over 60 years and are some of the most extensively used cell lines in Biomedical research. But where did these cell lines come from? The HeLa cell line was the first successful attempt at immortalizing human-derived cells in vitro . In the past, researchers spent more time trying to keep cells alive than performing actual experiments.... [ Read more ]

GPR17 and Remyelination: activators and antagonists

29/11/2017 BY XAVIER FAUSSADIER

GPR17 is an orphan G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that is abundant in the CNS, and has been shown to play a key role in regulating oligodendrocyte differentiation and maturation. Unfortunately, little has been known about the exact mechanism through which GPR17 influences myelination... [ Read more ]
