Technology Benefit Application
BacMam-enabled Cellular AssaysAn efficient, easy-to-optimize, and robust method for interrogating specific signal transduction events in the cell background of your choice. 
  • Efficient transduction of mammalian cell lines, including primary cells and stem cells
  • Frozen storage of pre-transduced cells generates assay-ready cells
  • Running assays in pharmacologically relevant cell types
GeneBLAzer® Reporter Gene AssaysThe GeneBLAzer® technology utilizes a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based, ratiometric detection method that reduces experimental noise, which can lead to false hits.

This technology is readily accessible for studying numerous target classes and cellular processes.

Tango™ Assay SystemThe Tango™ assay system provides a readout that is specific to the target receptor which ensures a selective readout.  False positives are minimized because the readout is proximal to the actual site of receptor activation.  Assay is independent of the G protein the receptor signals through which enables study of any GPCR (including orphans).This technology is ideal for GPCRs; however, the same techniques can apply to other cellular protein-protein interactions.
LanthaScreen® Cellular Assay SystemStudy posttranslational modifications in a physiologically relevant cellular context. With this assay format you can quickly screen with a simple and homogeneous high-throughput screening (HTS).  Amenable assay format
Interrogates the effects of your compounds on specific signaling events within a pathway.  Analyze multiple post-translational modifications using physiological pathway kinetics.
This technology is designed to address specific interactions within signaling pathways.
CellSensor® Cell LinesTranscriptional reporter gene assay for high-throughput screening and profiling These cell lines are ideal for analysis of an entire signal transduction pathway with a single endpoint readout.
Jump-In™ technologyAllows integration and expression of your gene of interest in mammalian cells at a specific genomic location. Isogenic stable cell line generation within 2–3 weeks. Ideal for studying orthologs or various genetic mutations rapidly without concern about positional effects.This technology is universally applicable for any mammalian cell line engineering project.
