Bronze Sponsor and Exhibitor

ChemGenes-Oligo2ChemGenes is offering nucleic acid expertise since 1981. ChemGenes Corporation, a biotechnology company, recently relocated to a state-of-the-art facility in Wilmington, Massachusetts. We have consistently been a strong partner to researchers engaged in the field of DNA/RNA synthesis for 36 years. By starting out as a supplier of ‘Ultra Pure Products’ and then by becoming an active Contract Researcher, ChemGenes Corporation has achieved unparalled expertise in the field of DNA/RNA synthesis. Thus, all of us at ChemGenes have the opportunity and great pleasure to serve a vast number of scientists in the US and all over the world. ChemGenes’ product lines include phosphoramidites for RNA and DNA synthesis, Antisense phosphoramidites, modified bases for DNA, as well as RNA modification. In addition, we produce a variety of modified phosphoramidites for the introduction of chromophores and ligands. The availability of prepacked disposable columns of various pore sizes, loadings, low volume columns, ancillary reagents in configurations suitable for each synthesizer, and DNA purification cartridges is another way ChemGenes meets its customers’ needs. A large variety of Reagents for the synthesis of DNA/RNA are also available, which include many natural and modified nucleoside bases, tetrazole, 5-thioethyltetrazole, DMT-chloride, DMT protected deoxy and ribo nucleosides, 2’-O-methyl and 2’-O-propargyl nucleosides, silyl protected ribonucleosides, several types of phosphorylating reagents, and many more. As the market for oligonucleotides continues to grow, ChemGenes will stay committed to introducing novel products, while maintaining its existing product mix. We also have the capacity to custom-synthesize products on request. Our highly-trained technical staff is always available and happy to help you with your special needs and demands in this area. For information regarding the full range of products and their applications, please call us at 800-762-9323.


dynabioBiophysical Analysis of Molecular Interactions with switchSENSE®

switchSENSE® is an automated biosensor chip technology that employs electrically actuated DNA nanolevers for the real-time measurement of binding kinetics (kON, kOFF) and affinities (KD). Interactions between proteins, DNA/RNA, and small molecules can be detected with femto-molar sensitivity. At the same time, protein diameters (DH) are analyzed with Angstrom accuracy and conformational changes as well as melting transitions (TM) can be measured using minimal amounts of sample.

The principles and applicability of three complementary measurement modalities provided by switchSENSE® will be introduced in this talk: Fluorescence Proximity Sensing, Molecular Ruler Measurements, and Switching Dynamics Measurements. In addition to standard workflows we’ll discuss unique possibilities for the functionalization of the sensor surface, i.e. the electrical adjustment of ligand densities and the precise assembly of different ligands on bifunctional nanolevers.

Application examples from drug development, quality control, and fundamental research will be discussed, including:

  • – Analysis of complex binders: high-affinity antibodies and bispecific antibody formats
  • – Small molecule induced conformational changes in proteins including dimers and aggregates
  • – RNA/DNA binding proteins including riboswitches and aptamers
  • – ‘large’ object binding including liposomes and virus-like particles
  • – nucleic acid : nucleic acid methodologies for genotyping, antisense and SNP detection
  • – Enzymatic activity of polymerases and CRISPR/Cas9
