High Throughput Comet Assay – IP 1501

FIU inventors have proposed an improvement to the laborious and time-consuming process of the Comet assay. By incorporating automation the slide-filled racks no longer need to be moved from one staining dish to another; the racks remain in one staining container to which buffers and reagents are added and then drained after the required step time. This process includes a tank designed to accommodate two slide racks to undergo electrophoresis. Through this approach, the electrophoresis process is automated and the user is able to leave the apparatus during the Comet assay. We are looking for a business partner to further develop and commercialize Automated Method for the Processing of Slides as a viable alternative to commercially available techniques and to exploit its business and scientific potential as an efficient yet effective method for processing electrophoresis and high throughput Comet assay.
