  • Publication number: 20220236291
    Abstract: Methods for preparing neural-derived compounds, e.g., the debris such as peptides, nucleic acids, or other compounds that would only normally be found in brain or CNS tissue, from circulating phagocytes. The methods herein may feature extracting lysate from circulating phagocytes obtained from outside central nervous system (CNS) tissue, producing a fraction of the lysate comprising CNS-derived compounds, and analyzing the CNS-derived compounds in the fraction.

  • Publication number: 20220236292
    Abstract: Methods for detecting neural-derived debris inside or on the cell surface of circulating neutrophils. The methods include single cell analysis of neutrophils and associated neural-derived biomarkers, using assays such as flow cytometry and single cell ELISA. The present invention also features methods for detecting and/or monitoring various states of brain health based on the neural-derived debris in said neutrophils.

  • Publication number: 20100196893
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for determining the number of tandem repeat units in a region of double stranded DNA based on the use of RecA-like recombinase protein and oligonucleotide ligation. The methods of the present invention provide RecA coated, specific DNA oligonucleotide probes (RecA filaments) for homology searching in duplex DNA where the location of homologous sequences results in the formation of D-loop structures containing a duplex region comprising the oligonucleotide probe and one strand of the target DNA.

  • Publication number: 20100035243
    Abstract: The present invention relates to screening methods, compositions, and kits for detecting for the presence or absence of one or more target analytes, e.g. biomolecules, in a sample. In particular, the present invention relates to methods that utilize nanoparticle probes in an in-solution homogeneous assay system for high-sensitivity detection of target proteins or nucleic acids based on flow analysis of single particles.

  • Publication number: 20040101870
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for performing biomolecular reactions using microvolumes of reagents are disclosed. The apparatus and methods include a chamber having a height less than 50 microns and means for mixing the extremely small volume of fluid in the chamber. The decreased volumes combined with mixing greatly improved microarray hybridization signal strength.

  • Publication number: 20030148284
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a method for detecting a target nucleic acid molecule in a sample. An immobilized oligonucleotide primer is extended using a polymerase, yielding an extension product that can be used in a detection assay. The assay is useful for detecting the presence of a target nucleic acid molecule in a sample and quantifying the amount of the target nucleic acid molecule in the sample. Also disclosed are ways of applying the method of the present invention.

  • Patent number: 5273905
    Abstract: An apparatus for the sequential multi-step processing of slide surface portions. The apparatus includes subassemblies and assemblies and a computer driven control system therefor. The apparatus permits at least one step of such a process sequence to be carried out with minimal amounts of processing liquids which is advantageous for specimen treatment with costly reagents, such as aqueous compositions containing probes. Immunochemical and in situ hybridization procedures can be carried out.
