Highlights from the Protocol Exchange

Highlights from the Protocol Exchange

Yesterday we published a really nice Exchange Protocol entitled A highly-sensitive and rapid Surface Plasmon Resonance immunoassay procedure based on the covalent-orientated immobilization of antibodies. It is a variation on a recent Nature Protocol (Multisubstrate-compatible ELISA procedures for rapid and high-sensitivity immunoassays), where detection is via SPR rather than ELISA. And it is pleasing to me that we were able to accomodate both methods by using both Nature Protocols and the Protocol Exchange.  Read more

Bronwen is off to Cambridge for a Synthesis in Organic Chemistry symposium

Today, I am in a good mood, because I know that next week I am going to a conference! As much as I love looking at manuscripts and browsing through the literature for commissioning ideas, it will be good to be out of the office and listening to scientists talking about their work. Hopefully, I will get to meet and chat to a few as well! I will be staying in a little bed-and-breakfast in the evenings, and during the day I will attend talks by eminent chemists at the 22nd International Symposium: Synthesis in Organic Chemistry in Cambridge.  Read more
