cell lines

The worldwide distribution agreement expands Oxford's existing product and service portfolio, streamlining workflows for current customers, the company said.

The results begin to adress questions about whether the company's meticulous, but costly research services can actually impact patient outcomes.

Researchers used mosquito and monkey cell lines to propagate viral RNA in semen samples from a man infected with Zika while traveling in the Caribbean.

Cell line engineers from Horizon Genomics said a method to make or undo fusion oncogenes in cell lines could help create reference standards for cancer diagnostics.

Considering the widespread use of the cell line, these findings could have significant implications for the research community. 

The updated repository includes 265 drugs, 1,074 cell lines, as well as associated whole-exome sequencing and gene expression data among other datasets.

The Human Cancer Models Initiative aims to create about 1,000 cancer cell lines that scientists can use to study tumor progression, drug resistance, and more.

Using Luminex's FlexMap detector, the method allows quantification of cells in a mixture of up to hundreds of individual cells lines treated with drugs in vitro.

Researchers believe that blocking c-Met and PARP1 may help patients with TNBC, and possibly other cancers, overcome resistance to PARP inhibitors.

The service will entail follow-up in vitro modeling and research for individuals with an identified, but ill-understood genetic variant related to a rare disorder.
