Protocol

Filter Capture, Extraction, and Sequencing of Coastal Metagenomes

In order to analyze the metagenomes of coastal microbial communities, we have standardized a protocol to collect, extract, and sequence near-shore microbiome samples. This procedure involves on-site filter capture of microbiomes from coastal water, DNA extraction via ceramic bead processing and sili... More


Protocol

Radiolabelling Nucleic Acids with [γ-32P] ATP for Analytical Assays

Nucleic acids are readily modified with tags that enable detection, purification, or tracking their interactions with other molecules. One of the standard labels used to generate nucleic acid probes includes radioactive phosphates because they allow for sensitive and rapid detection. This protocol d... More


Protocol

Streamlined High Throughput Drug Screening with PrimeSurface® White 384 well 3D plates

Using PrimeSurface® white plate, cancer spheroid cells can be formed and tested for drug screening using luminescence viability assay in the same well without the need for reagent transfer. This streamlined process shortens the experimental steps and time required in drug testing thus providing a ro... More

How to run cryopreservation protocols using a VIA Freeze™ system

The purpose of this protocol is to give the reader a comprehensive understanding of how to set up and operate the Cytiva VIA Freeze™ Uno, VIA Freeze™ Duo, and VIA Freeze™ Quad units.This protocol applies to anyone performing a procedure with the VIA Freeze™ units. Once training on this document is c... More


Protocol

Isolation of Mononuclear Cell Fractions Using Your Sepax™ System

The purpose of this protocol is to provide instructions on how to isolate mononuclear cell fractions of apheresis product, bone marrow, or umbilical cord blood using the Sepax™ system with initial volumes of 30 to 120 mL and selectable final volumes of 8-20 mL or 45 mL. This protocol applies to anyo... More


Protocol

Cell culture CO2 incubator decontamination process using hydrogen peroxide vapor for highly regulated and general cell culture protocols

The value of the laboratory cell culture incubator used in highly regulated research and clinical protocols is directly related to the proportion of incubator uptime vs. downtime in applications where frequent interior chamber decontamination is required or desired. The need for interior decontamina... More

Benchling & uniQure: Bringing a gene therapy pioneer from paper to the cloud

uniQure is rapidly advancing a pipeline of AAV-based gene therapies to treat patients with hemophilia, Huntington’s disease, and other severe genetic diseases, but they needed a digital solution that could track their gene therapy workflows end-to-end and enable international collaboration. Learn ho... More


Protocol

Multiplexed, trackable CRISPR-based genome engineering for optimization of heterologous protein expression and activity in E. coli

This work demonstrates the use of the Onyx platform for interrogation and optimization of heterologous proteins in E. coli. Compared to traditional methods for protein engineering, such as random mutagenesis or targeted site-directed mutagenesis approaches, the Onyx technology dramatically increases... More

Rebuilding evolutionary success: Using Inscripta’s Onyx Digital Genome Engineering Platform to ease and enhance Adaptive Laboratory Evolution experiments

Adaptive Laboratory Evolution (ALE) is a powerful approach to leverage biology’s evolutionary capacity to develop strains that thrive in challenging growth environments, with applications to biotechnology and bioproduction and for basic biochemical discovery. ALE experiments have been enabled by nex... More


Protocol

Enrichment of transfected cells with Dharmacon Edit-R Fluorescent dCas9-VPR mRNA

Edit-R Fluorescent dCas9-VPR mRNA enables both transfection optimization and enrichment for gene modulation experiments. For optimal enrichment of edited cells, sorting the cells for high EGFP expression levels (selecting the top 10% fluorescence) in addition to negative and dim fluorescence for com... More
