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.”

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.
Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
