Assays to measure cell growth and survival assays used in the laboratory have many widely known practical and technical limitations, including non-linearity, high background and cumbersome protocols. In particular, commonly used assays using tetrazolium salts to generate a colored product lack sensitivity and accuracy due to reliance on mitochondrial bioreduction and other factors. The market […]

LIMR researchers have developed a fast, accurate and inexpensive assay, the ThiOX test, that measures the overall thiol redox status of any biological specimen. ThiOX addresses the need for a rapid test to monitor thiol oxidative stress in live cells and tissues. The stability of free thiol groups and disulfide bonds (dithiols) in proteins is […]
When it comes to administration of recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGh), short half-life, instability in gastrointestinal tract, and low circulation time requiring frequent parenteral administration can lead to patient noncompliance. Researchers are investigating several polymer nanoparticle and micro particle based long acting delivery systems. However, comprehension of structural stability and polymer grade is fundamental for […]
A useful synthetic tool for any company / laboratory pursuing the synthesis of benzoxaborole-containing targets.
