Published in February 21’s issue of Analytical Chemistry (ASC), A Cell-free Protein Synthesis Approach to Biosensing hTRB-Specific Endocrine Disruptors is the Bundy Lab’s most recent contribution to the field of Cell-Free research.
“In this work, we demonstrate the potential of this biosensor platform to be used in a portable “just-add-sample” format for near real-time detection. We also demonstrate the robust nature of the cell-free protein synthesis component in the presence of a variety of environmental and human samples, including sewage, blood, and urine. The presented RAPID biosensor platform is significantly faster and less labor intensive than commonly available technologies, making it a promising tool for detecting environmental EDC contamination and screening potential NHR-targeted pharmaceuticals.” – Salehi ASM et. all
