    HOMOGENIZATION AND EXTRACTION OF FLUORESCENT CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS FROM MOUSE BONE TISSUE

    Sources: Atlanthera Laboratories, Saint-Herblain, France

    Context

    Atlanthera is a drug discovery company specialized in bone-targeted drug delivery through covalent binding of drugs to hydroxybisphosphonates (HBP), a class of molecule known for high affinity to bone. Extraction of HBP-conjugated chemical from bone is challenging and require efficient tissue homogenization. Precellys® Evolution system was tested for bone homogenization and compared with a cryogenic grinder.

    Results

    The best homogenization efficiency was obtained at 8500 rpm on dry rather than homogenization in buffer.
    Compound extraction was equivalent to our standard protocol (cryogenic grinder)
