Applications & Technologies

High Uniformity in BRCA Analysis, Enhanced viability and retention, VIROMER® CRISPR for RNP delivery etc.

Improve Trypsin Digestion & LC-MS Performance with Digestif Quality Control Reagent

Universal Quality Standards

Digestif comprises a soluble recombinant protein scaffold + 11 artificial peptides (iRT) with good ionization.
Amino acids flanking iRT cleavage site either favour or hinder protease cleavage.
Retention time & relative intensity pattern of released iRT can assess the quality of sample workup, the extent of digestion, LC-MS performance & inter/intra-lab variability

High Uniformity in BRCA Analysis

Hybridisation Capture vs PCR Amplification Enrichment in Targeted NGS

Hybridisation capture enrichment in targeted NGS, using a novel probe design technology, increases data uniformity compared to PCR amplification enrichment. Hybridisation capture gives coverage across UTR´s, Promoters, CDS, Splicing sites and enables detection of more mutants; insertions/deletions, CNV´s, SNV´s and gene fusion.

The unique re-balancing process with full QC will ensure optimal design and efficient workflows.

Simultaneous Ribosomal RNA Depletion in Multiple Species

The riboPOOL™ offers simultaneous ribo-depletion for complex samples. The method will deplete ribosomal RNA simultaneously across multiple species.

Efficient depletion of human, mouse and E. coli RNA with the Combination riboPOOL consisting of a 1:1:1 mix of Human, Mouse/Rat and Pan-Prokaryote riboPOOL was observed for 1 μg RNA input.

Microbiomic/Metagenomic Ribosomal RNA Depletion

The Pan-Prokaryote riboPOOL gives the widest microbial coverage for microbiome/metagenomic analysis, covering >75 different species simultaneously. Removing ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) with high efficiency and targets 5S, 16S and 23S rRNA.

For metagenomics, the riboPOOLs are available as combinational reagent, for example as Pan-prokaryote:Human mix, based on the expected ratios of your sample.

Change the way you process cells to get reliably consistent data in flow cytometry

The DA-Cell Laminar wash technology replaces centrifugation by using a novel DA-Cell technology, which is gentle to cells, giving higher retention.

  • A wide range of cell numbers, from single-cell to 10 million cells per well
  • No stress on cells from centrifugation and improved viability
  • Reduced debris and aggregation of cells
  • Cleaner and faster washing

Enhanced viability and retention

Cells from DA Cell method demonstrate much stronger fluorescence signal and intact morphology of cells.
Centrifugation presumably causes  significant stress on cells distorting its physiology and protein expression.

Efficient, flexible ribosomal RNA depletion for any species

Removing ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) to allow sensitive detection of scientifically relevant RNAs by Next Generation Sequencing, is currently performed with costly kits limited to well-studied species.
riboPOOLs present an affordable and flexible solution that gives scientists absolute freedom to deplete rRNAs or other custom RNAs from any species.

Composed of high complexity pools of optimally-designed biotinylated DNA probes, riboPOOLs even outperformed Ribo-Zero (Illumina), depleting ~10% more rRNA while leaving other RNA intact.

riboPOOLs Workflow and Ordering

riboPOOLs are available for any species. Contact us for your specific needs.
riboPOOLs in stock: Human, Mouse, Planarian, Drosophila, Silkworm. Available in 2, 5 or 10 nmol (20, 50, 100 reactions). Custom scales on request.

Protocol is based on biotin-streptavidin chemistry with magnetic bead capture and removal.

VIROMER® Cytostain Organelle-Targeted Live Cell Imaging

Fluorescence staining of selected organelle
Down-stream experiments unaffected – non-toxic and biological
Easy and straightforward

The new Viromer Cytostain adds content at great convenience at low toxicity. With the mRNA encoding fluorescent fused protein expression, you will stain your targeted organelle of interest in living cells without impacting viability. Your flexibility for downstream experiments are therefore retained.

Viromer Cytostain – how does it work?

The Viromer Cytostain reagent is a Viromer nanoparticle, complexed to mRNAs encoding for fluorescent proteins. Thanks to the features of the Viromer particle, the mRNA is efficiently delivered into the cell cytosol and the protein is directly expressed.

Viromer is an efficient, non-toxic polymer which is used for transfection of both standard and hard-to-transfect cells. The team at Lipocalyx has extensive experience in the development of tools for cell transfection, including the transfection of mRNA.

Protocol Viromer Cytostain

Straightforward protocol; rehydrate and add to cells. Signal detachable in 6 hours.

Next Generation Viromer® Transfection Viromer® mRNA

The new Viromer formulation has developed for higher efficiencies and easier protocols. It is a versatile tool for non-toxic transfection of mRNA into a broad range of standard and challenging cells. mRNA transfection has several benefits, in particular when plasmid DNA delivery and uptake is inefficient due to natural defence mechanisms against foreign dsDNA, such as immune cells.

Speed: mRNA does not need to reach the nucleus for cellular action and translation occurs through a promoter-independent process and the desired pro­tein is detectable as early as 6 h post-transfection.

Safety: No risk of genomic integration and transient expression avoids toxicity related to protein accumulation.

Productivity: As simple as in nature, mRNA instructs directly cells to produce proteins. With an optimized delivery, it is then possible to reach very high expression levels of any intracellular, transmembrane or excreted protein.

Next Generation Viromer® Transfection Viromer® Plasmid

The new Viromer formulation has developed for higher efficiencies and easier protocols.

It is a versatile tool for non-toxic transfection of pDNA into a broad range of standard and challenging cells. Viromer Plasmid serves as a great option to electroporation.

VIROMER® CRISPR for RNP delivery

Genome-editing using Cas9/gRNA ribonucleoprotein

Pre-formed RNP complex enables a direct action of the CRISPR system upon delivery. There is no need to pass through the transcription/translation cell machinery for expressing the Cas9 protein, and it skips the assembly step with the gRNA into the cytosol. It is then faster and safer!

Second, the cell rapidly clears Cas9/gRNA RNPs through protein degradation pathways.
This transient action provides a certain degree of control as it greatly increases the fidelity of the endonuclease (less off-target cleavage) and there is no risk of integration into the cell genome.

siRNA Off-Target Effects; Causes, Extent & Impact

siPOOLs™ are innovative, complex siRNA pools which reduce false positives & false negatives in siRNA knockdown experiments.

Individual siRNAs or low complexity siRNA pools containing 3-4 siRNAs often hit multiple off-target genes and exhibit variable target gene knock-down. Short interfering RNA (siRNA) pools, siPOOLs are highly complex and defined pools of 30 siRNAs, each siRNA present at picomolar working concentrations.

dilutes the off-target signature of each siRNA, increasing on-target specificity
ensures co-operative knock-down of the target gene, producing more robust and reliable results.
