Bio-Solid-phase microextraction (BioSPME) is a simple, fast and sensitive non-exhaustive sample preparation technique that allows the integration of sampling and sample preparation steps. The objective of current research was to automate SPME in 96-well plate format for the first time. The proposed system allows sample preparation of >1000 samples/day, simultaneous determination of both free and total concentration and suitability for performing ligand-receptor binding studies. Open-bed configuration of SPME enables direct handling of heterogeneous matrices such as whole blood, thus further simplifying the entire sample preparation process. The automation of SPME in 96-well plate format enables the highest throughput of any SPME technique to date.
In metabolomics studies of biofluids, the efficiency of metabolism quenching and stability of analytes in selected biofluid dictate how accurately the analytical results represent true metabolome composition at the time of sampling. However, complete quenching of metabolism is not easily accomplished and/or changes due to poorly stable compounds can occur, so the processes of sampling and sample preparation can significantly affect metabolome’s composition. The use of SPME for direct in vivo sampling of drugs and metabolites in the bloodstream of freely moving animals eliminates the need for blood withdrawal in order to generate pharmacokinetic (PK) or metabolomic profiles in support of pharmaceutical drug discovery studies. This is particularly important for situations with a limited blood volume such as mice because it enables the use of a single animal to construct an entire profile or conduct longitudinal studies. The aim of the current research was to apply SPME for in vivo sampling in mice for the first time. Furthermore, we investigate the use of in vivo SPME as an effective sample preparation method for both targeted pharmacokinetic and untargeted LC-MS metabolomics studies.

  • In Vitro Characterization of Species Difference of OATP In Vitro Characterization of Species Difference of OATP Na Li, Ph.D. Recorded: May 25 2016 52 mins
    Organic anion-transporting polypeptides (OATPs) play an important role in hepatic uptake of a variety of clinically important drugs. The significant differences in OATP/Oatp-dependent drug transport between human and preclinical species presents a challenge for interspecies extrapolation of drug pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. The assessment of the difference in hepatic uptake between species using an in vitro model is highly desired to support mechanistic studies and to understand the differences observed between species in vivo.

    The Corning® TransportoCells™ model has demonstrated significant value in terms of supporting in vitro assessment of drug interaction with SLC transporters in drug discovery and development. Recently, several animal species of Oatps were introduced into the Corning TransportoCells portfolio. This webinar will focus on the development of the newly available animal species and characterization of the differences in OATP/Oatp in substrate specificity and kinetics using this "thaw and go" model.
  • Geometry Optimization with COMSOL Multiphysics® Geometry Optimization with COMSOL Multiphysics® Dr Robbie Balcombe, Technical Manager, COMSOL Recorded: May 25 2016 60 mins
    For product designers, research scientists and engineers, a computational model that predicts the behaviour of a design is only the first step in the modelling process. Once a model has been solved the next step is to optimize the design. This might involve minimising the amount of material needed to safely support a structure, or maximising the throughput of a chemical in a chemical reactor. This optimization process can be automated using the Optimization Module in COMSOL Multiphysics®. You can pick one or more objective functions to be minimised, identify which modelling inputs can be varied to achieve the optimal design, and specify a set of constraints that a model must satisfy. In this webinar we will show you how to use the geometry optimization capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.2 to find the best designs quickly and easily. The presentation will feature a live modelling demo and finish with a Q&A session.

  • Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.

    Join us on May 16th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.

  • Imaging Analytics: Archived images can help identify and manage patients at risk Imaging Analytics: Archived images can help identify and manage patients at risk Charlotte Hovet, MD, MMM, CPE; Medical Director for Dell Services and Mitchell Goldburgh, Global Solutions Manager Recorded: May 12 2016 41 mins
    The rich data in your imaging archive is a resource that has largely been untapped. But now, Dell’s Clinical Cloud Services can help you tap that resource to impact population health and predict hidden risks in your patient population. Using automated machine vision medical image analysis, this new technology identifies patients at risk for chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease and other conditions, possibly well ahead of overt symptoms. Think of the value this could bring to patients and the advantage it would offer to a healthcare organization in a value-based reimbursement environment. Using existing prescribed imaging studies, Dell’s Imaging Analytics Platform selects appropriate studies that are analyzed for indications of disease presence. The platform makes the results available as reports, which are shared via HL7 or as DICOM objects. These reports are used by primary care physicians and care management program coordinators to provide follow up with patients on diagnostic tests and preventative care programs.
