3D Molecular Sciences Presents its New Patented 3D Encoded Particle Array Tool for Multiplexing Bioassays at BioArray Europe

01.10.2002


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.”


The Company’s 3DMS™ particle array system is a new, patented assay and detection technology that uses individually microscopic encoded particles for the detection of biological content or biochemical interactions in a wide variety of analytical bioassays and test formats. Such formats are for proteomics, immunoassays gene expression and SNP analysis.

Work is currently underway on a number of further commercial assay systems to illustrate the 3DMS 3D-particle array capability. The Company has a strong patent position and welcomes the opportunity to discuss licensing and collaboration with commercial partners to build and develop this platform further with suitable commercial assay applications.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: A space-time sensor for light-matter interactions

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.

The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
