Human iCell® DopaNeurons can be used to model devastating neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Here, a cluster of cells (blue nuclei) was stained for tyrosine hydroxylase (red) and neuronal marker MAP2 (green). The image was artistically enhanced to highlight the “burst” of neural projections emanating from the cell mass.

An Advantaged Next-Generation Host Organism
for a Wide Range of Biotechnology Applications
Vmax™ Synthetic Genomics, Inc. (SGI) announced the development and extensive engineering of Vibrio natriegens into Vmax™, a next-generation biotechnology host organism. SGI set out to develop a novel bacterial host that will drastically reduce the amount of time scientists spend on each experiment and workflow, and to enhance productivity of the resulting new host.

After screening for the fastest-growing strain and optimizing methods for introducing DNA into those cells at high efficiencies, SGI developed genome engineering tools to improve the performance of Vmax for common biotech applications, namely recombinant protein expression and molecular cloning.
Typical cloning projects using E. coli competent cells span several days starting from the time a cloning process is initiated to the time plasmid DNA is prepared. Cloning strategies employing Vmax shorten that time to as little as one day. Vmax is compatible with most kits, reagents, growth medium, vectors, and procedures already entrenched in laboratories.

Benchtop Device for Protein Multiplex Analysis
AYOXXA Biosystems GmbH and Märzhäuser Wetzlar GmbH & Co KG joined forces to develop a dedicated benchtop device for the analysis of LUNARIS™ Multiplex assays. The AYOXXA Reader AR01 expands the technology platform to offer researchers a complete, flexible, and user-friendly system for multiprotein analysis. The device was approved for routine laboratory work in biomedical research.
The instrument allows the fluorescence-based readout of a LUNARIS Multiplex assay with up to 384 samples on a microtiter plate format in less than one hour. Readout is fully automated using a self-developed control software which complements the already available analysis solution. The latter application processes the acquired data for easy, streamlined biomarker quantification and detailed reporting.
