New tool for pharmaceutical, biotechnology and functional genomics researchers
Quantum Dot Corporation announces launch of the Mosaic Gene Expression Assay System. For the first time, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and functional genomics researchers can measure quantitative expression of 100 user-specified mRNAs simultaneously from small amounts of input sample. The Mosaic System offers a unique combination of features, including:
“The combination of quality controls in every assay, exceptional performance, throughput and
project cost savings brings tremendous benefit to researchers and a better way to implement
gene expression analysis for discovery, compound screening and lead validation,” cites Senior
Marketing Manager, Stephen Chamberlain, Ph.D.
The Mosaic System includes the Mosaic Q1000 Scanner and computer, Mosaic software, and custom Gene Panels configured in convenient kit format; the assay is designed for automated processing on liquid-handling workstations. Each custom Gene Panel is designed and manufactured with gene-specific beads that are spectrally coded with the QDC’s innovative Qdot® nanocrystals. Fluorescent spectral codes are identified and gene data is measured by the Mosaic Q1000 Scanner and analyzed by the Mosaic Data Collector and Expression Manager Software modules.
Quantum Dot CEO, George Dunbar explains, “This cutting edge technology, combined with QDC’s Qdot nanocrystal expertise, not only allows scientists to perform fine gene expression research on the most important subsets of genes for compound discovery and development, but also satisfies new demands in emerging fields such as Translational and Molecular Medicine.”
