3D Molecular Sciences presented a poster providing new assay data on the Company’s multiplexing enabling platform technology for molecular medicine at the BioArray Europe conference, taking place in Cambridge, UK, on 1 October 2002. The new patented assay system consists of microfabricated encoded particles of a variety of designs, attachment chemistries and a choice of readers to interpret the results.
The poster presentation, entitled Several Assay Systems Presented Using a New Patented 3D Encoded Particle Array Tool for Multiplexing Bioassays, shows new data demonstrating the compatibility of the Company’s individually coded particles with a diverse range of assays including nucleic acids and cytokines. The Company’s technology platform offers an inexpensive and flexible tool to the pharmaceutical, biotech and clinical diagnostic industries that allows for a superior volume of tests, a scaleable capability and multiplexing of samples. It has the potential to screen for gene-linked diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer`s, obesity and cystic fibrosis. It can also offer great possibilities in compound library screening, environmental monitoring and in anti-terrorism systems.
Dr Elizabeth Hill, 3D Molecular Sciences’ CEO, said, “Our 3DMS™ 3D particle array tools are designed to carry out large-scale bioassay analysis required in drug discovery, drug development and in diagnostics in a low cost and fast manner. Our data presented at this conference clearly illustrates the capability this platform has, and we will continue to maintain our technology programme so we can exploit this platform to the full.”

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
