3D Tumor Modeling with Next-Generation NanoCulture Plates

Scaffolding is important for 3D cell culture to mimic tissue micro environment. However, working with the traditional gel format is a cumbersome procedure for many assay types including high throughput screening.
MBL International is excited to announce the launch of Next-Generation NanoCulture Plates for 3D tumor cell culturing. The NanoCulture Plate/Dish (NCP) is engineered with an evenly patterned nano-scale structure on a proprietary plastic film attached to the bottom of the plate. The pattern mimics the extracellular matrix and allows for cells to migrate across the plate and form healthy spheroids.

Inflammasome and Inflammation Research

Caltag Medsystems would like to share with you our key inflammasome and inflammatory research tools. Inflammasomes are multi-protein complexes implicated in physiological and pathological inflammation, and their activity has been linked to the induction of numerous inflammatory responses, either harmful or beneficial to the organism. Both inflammasomes and inflammation play a vital role in immunity.

Uptake Assay Kits: measuring Nature’s rates of life

The measurement and quantitation of metabolite uptake processes, such as glucose or fatty acids is crucial in establishing the initiation of cancer and diabetes respectively. Therefore, high-throughput uptake assays offer outstanding advantages in order to compare multiple cell lines, treatment and/or microenvironmental conditions. BioVision offers a comprehensive series of Uptake Assay Kits measuring glucose, fatty acid or HDL uptake in cultured cells in real-time. Our assays are non-radioactive, highly sensitive, reproducible, and HTS adaptable for screening of these molecule uptake-modulating test/treatment conditions.

Monitoring of Immune Response to Influenza Infection

Influenza, often referred to as “the flu”, is one of the most common respiratory infections in humans1. Influenza rapidly spreads around the world in seasonal epidemics and imposes a considerable economic burden in the form of health care and hospitalization costs.
Influenza viruses are grouped into 3 major types (A, B, and C), and strains are further divided into multiple subtypes based on the virus surface proteins hemagglutinin and neuraminidase. Investigating immune responses to influenza virus infection among the different subtypes is important for the development of more effective influenza vaccines.

CD279 (PD-1) is a type I transmembrane protein belonging to the CD28/CTLA-4 family of immunoreceptors that mediate signals for regulating immune responses. Members of the CD28/CTLA-4 family have been shown to either promote T cell activation (CD28 & ICOS) or downregulate T cell activation (CTLA-4 & PD-1).

TIM Recombinant Proteins

Recombinant TIM Proteins from BioVision 
Proteins of the transmembrane immunoglobulin and mucin domain (TIM) family are expressed by multiple cell types within the immune system. They are important regulators of immunity and play prominent roles in the control of auto-reactive immune responses. Studies over the last several years have suggested that these proteins may be promising targets for therapeutic manipulation of immune responses. Thus, modulation of TIM protein function may prove to be a useful strategy to control autoimmune diseases and has opened up the possibility of a new area for immune modulation. BioVision offers an extensive collection of recombinant TIM family proteins that can serve as useful tools to support this research.
