Antibiotic resistance is one of the key health challenges of the future. In a new study, researchers have carried out a multi-step analysis to deliver insights into translocation of the hydrophobic and hydrophilic portions of the large lipopolysaccharide molecules through the outer membrane of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This article summarises their…

Application note: Pushing the boundaries in pharmaceutical hit discovery with the novel waveRAPID® kinetic assay
We demonstrate the power of waveRAPID in streamlining the kinetic characterisation of large numbers of drug hit compounds, with results comparable to traditional surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and high reproducibility.
Optimisation of a hit towards a lead happens in a variety of ways, as a lead needs to meet various criteria such as activity, affinity to the target, selectivity, solubility, permeability or metabolic stability to become a promising candidate. A balance between in vitro profiles and pharmacokinetic attributes has to…
IN NOVEMBER 2017, leadXpro chose to strengthen its capabilities with the Creoptix™ WAVEsystem. “We were looking for a label‑free, biophysical method to investigate binding affinity and kinetics of small molecules with challenging integral membrane proteins,” explained Michael Hennig, Chief Executive Officer of leadXpro.
