As we start a new year, we at Advanced Targeting Systems are more dedicated than ever to providing our customers with the innovative, cutting-edge tools that will accelerate and optimize research. Scientists around the world have published exciting new data to advance our knowledge of how specific cell types affect behavior and disease. With each new discovery, possibilities move closer to realities for unraveling the molecular basis for behavioral abnormalities and cures for devastating diseases.
Which targeting tool will advance your research?
- Targeted Toxin: a powerful tool to specifically eliminate cells. Most frequently used in vivo to discover function of a particular cell type.Typically, cell function diminishes by the 3rd day following treatment, reaches minimum activity by 7 days and is maintained indefinitely. Anatomical changes are usually complete after 14 days.
If you want to know what a cell does, get rid of it, and study what happens when you do.
- Internalization Assay Kit: a screening tool to identify whether a targeting agent is internalized in a cell of interest. These “Z-kits” are most frequently used in vitro to discover optimal cell-surface targeting agent (antibody, peptide, ligand, etc.) for a particular cell type.
The power behind this kit is a ZAP conjugate — a non-targeted saporin conjugate that piggybacks on to your primary targeting agent (antibody or biotinylated material).
- Customized Targeting: a made-to-order tool to meet specific research demands. Custom conjugate – Biotinylation – Fluorescent labeling – Contract assay services.
