University of Cambridge Uses Leading Image Analysis Solutions to Help Rapidly Analyse Polysaccharides from Genetically Modified Plants.
Jan 24 2007
Researchers in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge use the G:BOX Chemi HR16 to perform automatic quantification of fluorescently labelled oligosaccharides on PACE (polysaccharide analysis using carbohydrate gel electrophoresis) gels to produce a unique profile of the plant's cell wall composition.
Dr Florence Goubet, a post-doctoral scientist from Dr Paul Dupree's team in the Department of Biochemistry explained: "PACE and automated quantification can be substituted for chromatography and mass spectrometry techniques, both of which require pure or large amounts of compounds to generate results from just a few plant samples. Using our method we can process up to 100 samples a day and can detect oligosaccharides in the picomole range, which means we can rapidly identify whether we have successfully genetically engineered the plants we are modifying."
