CNBP researcher Nima Sayyadi is first author on a recently published paper titled, ‘A novel biocompatible europium chelate for sensitive time-gated immunodetection.’
The paper was published in the journal Chemical Communications.
Abstract: We describe the synthesis of a novel hydrophilic derivative of a tetradentate β-diketone europium chelate that was used to prepare an immunoconjugate probe against Giardia lamblia cysts. We used a Gated Autosynchronous Luminescence Detector (GALD) to obtain high quality delayed luminescence images of cells 30-fold faster than ever previously reported.

A recently published article by Mel Sutton-McDowall and collaborators (Jeremy Thompson, Malcolm Purdey, Ewa Goldys, Hannah Brown and Andrew Abell) has made the front cover of the Molecular Reproduction and Development Journal. The paper examined the influence of an oocyte specific growth factor BMP15 follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) on oocyte metabolism. The study was the result of CNBP cross nodal and transdisciplinary collaboration.
