Clarification of the Interactions between Lipoproteins and Chondroitin-6-sulfate

Apr 04, 2012 10:28 EDT Attana AB Three different experimental approaches were used for obtaining a comprehensive view and understanding of the interactions between apolipoprotein B-100 (ApoB-100) of low-density lipoprotein and apolipoprotein E (ApoE) of high-density lipoprotein and chondroitin-6-sulfate (C6S) of arterial proteoglycan.

Photogenerated lectin sensors produced by thiol-ene/yne photo-click chemistry in aqueous solution

Mar 28, 2012 10:22 EDT Attana AB The photoinitiated radical reactions between thiols and alkenes/alkynes (thiol-ene and thiol-yne chemistry) have been applied to a functionalization methodology to produce carbohydrate-presenting surfaces for analyses of biomolecular interactions.

Real-time analysis of  carbohydrates on cell surfaces using a QCM biosensor-a lectin-based approach

Mar 20, 2012 11:10 EDT Attana AB The real-time lectin screening of a range of lectins, including ConA, DBA, PNA and UEA-I, enabled the accurate study of the glycosylation changes between cells, such as changes associated with cancer progression and development. Furthermore, the kinetic parameters of the interaction of Con A with MDA-MB-468 cells were studied. Read the full abstract here:

Label Free Cell Based Biosensors - Attana Cell 200

May 24, 2011 09:00 EDT Attana AB Attana Cell 200- Bridging the gap between traditional biosensors and cell based assays! Drug development is costly and risky, the need for technologies that accelerate the process of drug discovery becomes more urgent. This paper shows four instances of how the Attana Cell 200 biosensor provides data that enhances the ability to select the right drug candidates earlier in the process.

QCM Technology - Attana Poster

Apr 15, 2011 04:07 EDT Attana AB The data obtained from QCM analyses are firstly qualitative, delivering information about specificity and selectivity, and quantitative, delivering exact thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of interactions. See the difference in this poster!

Attana biosensor and applications!

Apr 07, 2011 04:17 EDT Attana AB Attana has several Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) based instruments and applications, all catering to crucial needs and developed in close collaboration with industry and universities. Examples include kinetic analysis on cell surfaces, candidate selection screening, aggregation characterization, epitope mapping and concentration determination of biopharmaceuticals.
