Title: High throughput cellular thermal shift assays (CETSA): approaches and applications.

Mark Henderson, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), NIH & Lorena Kallal , GlaxoSmithKline, Collegeville, PA

Abstract : The cellular thermal shift assay (CETSA) is a valuable method to assess target engagement within the cellular environment by measuring changes in thermal stability of a protein conferred by ligand binding. The traditional CETSA method is labor intensive, which limits its use when testing large sets of compounds during screening or lead optimization. In recent years, several high-throughput CETSA approaches have been developed to overcome this limitation. During this webinar, we will describe high-throughput CETSA approaches and discuss strengths, pitfalls, and potential applications of these technologies.

   LRIG-Philadelphia Virtual Scientific Meeting March 2021 image

The Laboratory Research & Innovation Group of Philadelphia (LRIG-Philadelphia) and The Pennsylvania Drug Discovery Institute (http://www.padrugdiscovery.org/) is proud to present another Virtual Scientific Meeting. This lunchtime "WebEx" event will feature a presentation by President & CEO of Melior Pharmaceuticals and an opportunity for questions and answers.

Overview of Presentation:

Harnessing Pharmacological Pleiotropy for Drug Repositioning

Although the word “pleiotropy” is customarily used in a genetic sense to refer to the phenomenon where a gene effects multiple traits, here we take the liberty to use it in the sense of a drug having multiple therapeutic actions. We use the biology of lyn kinase, and the activator of lyn kinase, MLR-1023, as an illustrative example.

Please remember to register and join us for this exciting virtual event. The evening before the event you will receive a link that will allow you to join the WebEx meeting.

Title: Harnessing Pharmacological Pleiotropy for Drug Repositioning

Abstract : Study of the pharmaceutical discovery process, its evolution over the last three or four decades, and its persistent high attrition rate, make it clear that scientific progress has made little or no inroads towards improving new therapeutic entity discovery. A core tenet of this phenomenon is that there is much more that we do not understand about biological systems than the amount that we do understand. We propose that an element of this lack of understanding is the degree to which the therapeutic targets that are modulated by drugs that we work with are involved in more biology, and thereby more therapeutic potential, than most investigators appreciate. This is reflected in the high rate at which drugs are used for indications other than the ones for which they were originally developed. We have coined this phenomenon of multi-therapeutic application for a single drug, pharmacological pleiotropy. MLR-1023, with its activation of lyn kinase, provides an excellent illustration of pharmacological pleiotropy, detailed with scientific understanding across diverse therapeutic space, animal model validation in every case, and with at least two instances of clinical validation. The story also serves as a good example of the fact that there is much more to successful drug discovery and development beyond accomplishing the already arduous take of clinically proving that a drug is safe, well-tolerated and effective for the pursued indication. Differentiation from existing therapeutics and robust market exclusivity are equally as vital for a program’s success.

Nanotechnology and Nanofabrication for Biological Applications

Abstract: Nanotechnologies exist around us. Cell phone, tablet, computer, watch and even in Oculus games. Due to the ever increasing need for smaller and faster devices, nanotechnology has been the subject of intense research and commercial activities. The traditional area of nanotechnology includes semiconductors and microelectromechanical system (MEMS) such as diode, transistor, solar cell, quantum dots, actuator and sensor. And most of the nanofabrication process requires lithography, deposition and etch techniques. Recently, non-traditional use of nanotechnology is emerging, especially in biology area. Gradient generator, droplet generator and cell culture device are examples of biological application. In this talk, I will present principle and examples of key nanofabrication techniques, and associated tool capabilities that Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania provides. Then, I will introduce concepts and process flows of actual microfluidic devices to understand the nanofabrication for biological applications.

About this Event

Applications of Biological Target-Based Assays for Chemical Detection.

Although biological target-based assays are commonly used in pharmacology and toxicology, these assays can also be used for chemical detection. In this presentation, the applications, advantages, and limitations of biological target assays for chemical detection will be discussed, and a specific application will be highlighted.  

 

See below for Information on our speakers and an abstract of their presentation.



Michael F. Santillo, Ph.D.


For the past decade I worked as a research scientist at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) within the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). My research at FDA focuses on developing in vitro methods (cellular and biochemical assays) for detecting and predicting the safety of chemicals related to foods and dietary supplements. Additionally, I serve as a FDA’s representative on the assay evaluation team for Tox21, a consortium among several federal agencies who are employing high-throughput screening assays for toxicology testing. I am a member of the American Chemical Society and Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) and served on editorial boards for SLAS Technology and the Journal of Pharmacological and Toxicological Methods. Before joining FDA, I received a Ph.D. in chemistry from Penn State University, where I developed microfluidic devices for cellular assays.


LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mfsantillo


Abstract

Assays that measure interactions between chemicals and their biological targets (receptors, enzymes, ion channels, transporters) play important roles in pharmacological and toxicological research. However, biological target-based assays can also be employed as analytical techniques, where they serve as biosensors for detecting compounds (e.g., drugs, toxins, environmental pollutants) in complex sample matrices. This presentation will provide an overview of the advantages, challenges, and applications of biological target-based assays for chemical detection, especially ones that have been validated and recognized by regulatory agencies or standards organizations (e.g., AOAC International). In addition to providing an overview of these assays, a specific application will be highlighted, where a biological target assay was developed for detecting erectile dysfunction drugs and analogues in tainted products marketed as dietary supplements.

Automation Enabled High-Throughput Experimentation for Acceleration of Small Molecule Development

Sofia Kochiashvili and James Thomas; GlaxoSmithKline, 1250 South Collegeville Rd, Collegeville, PA 19426

Utilization of laboratory automation can accelerate the chemistry, manufacturing, and control (CMC) activities in pharmaceutical research and development. Our goal is to accelerate product development by designing, implementing and validating automation protocols that enable high throughput experiments focusing on the characterization of GSK therapeutic candidates. Our automated workflows include crystallization & polymorph screening, formulation development, stability assessment, forced degradation and kinetic solubility studies. The global small molecule automation capabilities include: multi-functional Unchained Labs robotic platforms, Mettler Quantos and Chemspeed solid dispensing platforms, Hamilton, CyBio and Andrew liquid handling systems. These robots enable us to automate sample preparation on a miniaturized scale through liquid and solid dispensing (with integrated balance) combined with heating, cooling, stirring, vortexing and more. The systems are easily programmable, enabling the scientist to customize each experimental design. The platforms interface with analytical instrumentation (eg. HPLC and pH electrodes) to automate data handling by pulling the data from an entire study into a single database. While small molecule automation lab supports workflows ranging from early discovery to phase III clinical trials, we focus on accelerating Pre-CS to FTIH, concomitantly cutting down FTE efforts, money and time. Automation is a growing space with expanding workflow capabilities and collaborations extending outside of the department. Small-molecule automation has supported various departments, completing over 20,000 experiments in 2019.

The New Sound of Sample Management: Nanoliter Dispensing from Sample Tubes with the Labcyte Echo Liquid Handler

Presented by: Jaclyn Greimann, Ph.D., Field Applications Scientist, Mid-Atlantic Region, Labcyte Inc

The Echo Liquid Handler is essential to sample management and drug screening workflows because of its high throughput, accuracy and unmatched precision. We now present the Echo 655T Echo Liquid Handler that has the same reliable capabilities of the Echo 555 series—transferring nanoliter volumes from 384-well and 1536-well microplates—but with the added capacity of transferring from Echo Qualified sample tubes. With the launch of this new system, Labcyte now offers the ability to use acoustic transfer throughout the entire drug discovery workflow, from sample storage tube transfer to initial screening; from hit confirmation to lead compound EC50 validation assays.

In order to optimize the use of the Echo Liquid Handlers, we offer robotics integration through the Access platforms.

New Hybrid Tubes for Larger Volume Sample Storage and Automation

Presented by: Ed Sheridan, Director of Sales and Marketing, Micronic America

We're proud to introduce our 2.00ml and 3.00ml Hybrid tubes. The two innovative tubes provide a better alternative to traditional cryo tubes. The new tubes guarantee sample traceability, optimize working volume and increase overall sample storage efficiency. The transparent parts of the tube walls enable easy visual checking of the sample, while the 4 coding concepts guarantee sample traceability. Samples can be identified with the 2D Data-Matrix, 1D barcode, numeric human readable and by the written codes on the white surface of the tube. The external thread and flat bottom of the 2.00ml and 3.00ml hybrid tubes allow for an optimal volume of material to be stored inside. The tubes can store more sample material, while occupying the same amount of storage space, in comparison to traditional cryo tubes. Additionally, the extremely versatile hybrid tubes are compatible with ANSI / SLAS format racks, standard cryo boxes, automated stores, code readers and liquid handlers.

The Latest Automation Technology for Larger Volume Labware Workflows

Presented by: Michael Girardi, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Hamilton Storage

As the trend in the market to use larger labware continues to grow, laboratories need the ability to process these samples quickly and efficiently, as well as securely store them. The new 6-channel decapping head on the LabElite decapping devices is the first in the market to automatically decap and recap large format tubes such as the Nunc™ Low Profile 5.0 mL Externally-Threaded Universal Tubes. Many researchers prefer the large format tube geometry as it enables storage of solid and liquid samples up to several milliliters, with easy access using forceps or standard-length pipette tips. On top of the tube geometry benefits, the automated processing step allows researchers to increase sample throughput, refocus attention on higher value activities and reduce or eliminate the risks of sample mishandling or contamination compared to manual methods. The 6-channel head is ideal for applications in biobanking, agriculture, genomics, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, clinical and more.

To securely store samples, researchers can use the new SAM HD system—an automated sample storage system that stores samples down to -80°C. The SAM HD has the ability to store multiple sizes of tube types in one system, as well increasing the amount of tubes that can be stored using Hamilton Storage’s RackWare high-density racks. By using automation to process and store large volume samples, the process becomes more efficient, samples are secure and maintain their integrity, and it allows scientists to use their time to focus on the more important tasks, such as research.

High-throughput spheroid culture with magnetic 3D bioprinting

Presented by: Caroline Fanslau, Account Manager, Greiner Bio-One North America, Inc

Three-dimensional (3D) cell culture has gained prominence as researchers seek to recreate native tissue structure and function in vitro better than traditional two-dimensional (2D) methods. These platforms are so significantly recapitulating native environments that there is increasing interested in adapting these platforms to high-throughput workflows. Magnetic 3D bioprinting for 3D cell culture escapes the limits of speed and handling of traditional 3D methods. The basis of this platform is the magnetization of cells and subsequent 3D culture assembly with magnetic forces, which allows uniform creating of spheroids that fit the dimensions of HTS assay plates. Further, magnetized spheroids can also be held down with magnets enabling easy media exchange and liquid handling. In this presentation, we will discuss our results in in vitro assay development for high-throughput (384 and 1536w applications), showing that magnetic 3D bioprinting is a 3D cell culture platform that is rapid, easy to handle, and scalable for HTS.

BioTek’s Automated Media Exchange (AMX) module on the MultiFloFX

Presented by: Vram Derohannessian, Sr. Sales Representative, BioTek Instruments, Inc

Spheroidal 3D cell culture is increasingly common for many research areas as it better mimics the in vivo environment. It can be challenging to perform media exchanges and washes without accidental cell structure loss.

BioTek’s patent-pending AMX™ module for the MultiFlo™ FX enables gentle automated media exchange to protect and encourage proliferation of spheroids, tumoroids and other 3D cell structures, 2D and suspension cells in microplate-based assays The AMX module uses both peristaltic pumps, one to dispense and one to aspirate media from the plate wells. The software operates the pumps slowly and gently so cells and cell structures aren’t disturbed during the media exchange, and the x-y-z positions for the aspirate and dispense tubes are adjustable to avoid contact, etc with cell structures in the wells.

Reducing Plastic Consumable Waste in the Laboratories through Financially Viable Solutions

Presented by: Ali Safavi, Founder & CEO, Grenova

Plastic waste is a growing issue for our planet and labs in the life sciences industry are becoming a large contributor to this ongoing problem. In 2015, Urbina, et. al. estimated labs contributed 5.5 million tons of single use plastics a year to the waste problem. As more labs adopt new technology and automation strategies, plastic consumables waste will continue to grow as well. By the end of 2018, it is estimated that over 77 million pounds of pipette tips will be discarded into our landfill – that’s enough tips to circle the earth over 10 times, or produce 223 million kWh of electricity, which would be sufficient to power over 20,852 homes in the US. Additionally, the cost of these consumables and their disposal is a drain on laboratory budgets. Implementing Grenova pipette tip cleaning technology helps. This easily aligns with overall laboratory budgetary goals resulting in financial gain and plastic waste reduction. To date, Grenova has helped labs safely, and without any compromise to the assay results, save over $4.3 million and over 178,000 lbs. of what would have been landfill waste. This makes pipette tip re-use not only feasible, but financially and socially sustainable.

Reduce Assay Variability with Pipette Training

Presented by: Melinda Gold, Ph.D., Product Manager, Artel

Pipettes and other liquid handling devices are at the core of many life science assays and experiments and many of us scientists’ pipette in an almost subconscious way. After a bit of practice initially, typically there isn’t too much thought given to all the subtleties of good pipetting technique. While instrument and operator qualifications are habitually addressed in regulated laboratory environments, seemingly simple instruments such as handheld pipettes have a propensity to be overlooked, and their potentially compromising effects on data quality are often not considered. Many laboratories work under the assumption that operators will exercise good pipetting techniques without subjecting them to a specialized training and subsequent competency assessment program. Despite many QA departments emphasizing the importance of the actual pipettes specified accuracy and repair and maintenance schedules, training operators to use the pipettes in an educated and most effective way is frequently neglected. Proper pipette performance is essential to generating data that are both reliable and reproducible therefore there is a strong argument for incorporating a training and proficiency testing program for pipetting in every lab that values accuracy and precision and wants to reduce rework.
