Aptamers in Diagnostics
In recent years, the field of therapeutics has witnessed remarkable advancements in the development of novel treatment strategies. Among the emerging approaches, aptamers have emerged as powerful tools with immense potential in various therapeutic applications. Aptamers, short single-stranded nucleic acid or peptide molecules, can specifically… Read More »Unlocking Therapeutic Potential: Aptamers as Promising Tools in Medicine
Aptamer-based biosensors typically consist of three components: the aptamer as the recognition element, a transducer, and a signal output. The aptamer binds to the target molecule, and this binding event is then transduced into a detectable signal by the transducer. The signal output can be… Read More »What Are Aptamer-Based Biosensors & Their Applications?
We recently asked which of the following applications cannot be done with aptamers? The results were overwhelmingly in favor of one choice: We can go through each option to see how aptamers are indeed able to be used in diagnostics, therapeutics, and drug discovery but… Read More »What Cannot Be Done with Aptamers?
In our “What is an aptamer” blog, we described that aptamers are synthetically made, single-stranded DNA or RNA molecules. There are inherent differences between DNA and RNA when found naturally. DNA is typically a double-stranded biomolecule composed of A, T, C, and G bases. RNA… Read More »DNA vs RNA Aptamers
Square waves happen in the ocean when waves in different directions cross each other. They are beautiful but dangerous for swimmers. Square wave voltammetry is similar but I think definitely less dangerous. I will use an incomprehensible introductory sentence and then deconstruct this in order… Read More »Square Wave Voltammetry (SWV) Used in Diagnostic Applications with Aptamers
Custom design of an aptamer selection strategy that will fit your needs. This means appropriate counter selection, appropriate matrix selection, and appropriate target identification. Guidance of the selection process to ensure appropriate balance between specificity and affinity. At NeoVentures we support this by mathematically modeling… Read More »Custom Aptamers “7 steps for aptamers to be applied commercially”
In our previous post on “can aptamers replace antibodies” we mentioned some of the limitations where antibodies are unable to detect small molecules. Today we would be discussing the limitations of antibodies in Viral infections. Despite years of research, certain pathogens, such as HIV, have… Read More »Can aptamers replace antibodies ?“Neutralization of infections”
NeoVentures does not have a catalog for aptamers nor sell a pre-set aptamer development package. Your journey with us starts with our understanding of your needs for aptamer performance. We use this to develop a customized strategy for every aspect of project development from identifying… Read More »How To Buy Aptamers ?
Can aptamers replace antibodies? Almost all existing diagnostic kits are based on the use of an antibody for the target compound. A $17B industry has been built on this basis. However, antibodies have their limitations: Antibodies will not detect small molecules unless the small molecule… Read More »Aptamers Vs Antibodies
