Portable Aptamer Based Sensor for Toxin Detection

9th August 2018 
Aptamers continue to demonstrate advantages in platforms and applications which require specific detection of small molecule targets.
There has been a growth in the use of point of care devices across a range of applications and assay types due to a need for rapid and reliable analysis (Vashist 2017). Aptamers are perfectly suited for […]

  • Comparing healthy to disease state cells using aptamers

Aptamer Application: Biomarker Discovery

22nd August, 2017.
Biomarker Discovery

A biomarker is a measurable indicator showing the presence or severity of a disease state. Using biomarkers to differentiate between healthy and diseased cells can enable the development of specific diagnostics, research tools and targeted therapeutics.

Biomarker Discovery using Aptamers

Traditional biomarker discovery is a long process and relies on multiple comparisons using various […]

  • Aptamer, Flow Cytometry, Data, Stain, Antibody Alternative

Aptamer Application: Flow Cytometry

1st August, 2017.
Flow Cytometry
Flow Cytometry is a technique used to identify biomarkers on cell surfaces and intracellular molecules. Most flow cytometers use fluorescently labelled antibodies to differentiate between cells expressing different markers.

Initially the cell sample is suspended, stained with a fluorescent label and washed to remove any non-specific binding. The suspension is introduced into the […]
