Unique to the FLIPR Tetra system is a single camera to monitor aequorin
luminescence and fluorescence-based calcium and membrane potential assays.
technology, based on a naturally occurring photoprotein, generates large, luminescent signals that result in higher quality data, while reducing the number of false positives in high throughput and ultra-high throughput screening environments.
glows blue when calcium ions bind to it, but it's more than just a pretty protein.
One of the reasons that we're pursuing a modified Tetra is that we find that the current suppliers of readers for aequorin
don't have the preferred features that our customers want.
Evotec OAI may also develop aequorin
assays to pursue its own research programs, while the terms of the agreement permit Euroscreen to use Evotec OAI's Vlip technology for its research and commercial applications as well.
a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, today announced that it has entered into a drug discovery research collaboration with Sangmyung University (Republic of Korea), based on applying PerkinElmer's AequoScreen[R] aequorin
assay technology to cutting-edge G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) research.
Improved flexibility and throughput with a choice of multiple detectors (1, 2, 6 or 12) with two reagent dispensing heads per detector for more efficient assay development with flash luminescence technology such as Aequorin
Mark Underwood, president of Quincy Bioscience explains how the jellyfish protein aequorin
Readers of the book will better comprehend how my long-standing interest in the potential of this jellyfish protein, called aequorin
, led to the founding of Quincy," said Underwood.
