Bioanalytical Laboratory needed grow Human Primary Trophoblast cells with serum and without serum for varying amounts of time (0, 24hrs, 48hrs, 72hrs, and 96hrs). Then immunofluorescence stain the cells with GLUT8 and Humanin for images.
We are looking to have a data point for every combination of serum, time,and staining:
serum: with and without
time(hrs): 0 (control), 24hrs, 48hrs, 72hrs, and 96hrs
staining: GLUT8 and Humanin (if possible, also co-staininng with lysosomal markers)
We also need to have a non-isotype IgG negative control.
For immunofluorescence images, we would like at least 40x magnification.

LONG-TERM TESTING Small business that manufactures topical homeopathics in small batches needs microbiology laboratory for USP Batch Testing to USP Standards: USP 61 MICROBIOLOGICAL EXAMINATION OF NONSTERILE
PRODUCTS: MICROBIAL ENUMERATION TESTS
and/or USP 62 MICROBIOLOGICAL EXAMINATION OF NONSTERILE PRODUCTS: TESTS FOR SPECIFIED
Life Science company needs laboratory for NMR spectras to help determine if there are steroimpurities. Spectras at NMR: 1H-13C HSQC 400-500MHz. We need one spectrum at room temperature and another at a different temperature (>15C degree difference). So 4 spectra total, 1H, 13C and at two temperatures.
Test Request 17-01327
FDA Medical device microbiology laboratory needed to perform multi-use testing assay on a liquid bandage medical device product. This assay is similar to USP51 testing and will use the 5 specified microbes, but it must have repetitious bioburdens applied to simulate a multi-use, (ie. ~50 uses) environment for the non-sterile liquid bandage product. The produc unit and the applicator with which bioburden contamination will occur is a propylene brush.

LONG-TERM TESTING Bioscience company needs bioanalytical laboratory for raw material, in-process, and final product MAT or cell-based endotoxins testing with assays that are not based on the LAL or rProtein C methods for endotoxin detection. The liquid formulation of both proteins and polymers. We would need to have endotoxin testing performed with a MAT or cell-based assay, since we already know that protein interferes with the LAL and rProteinC methods.
Bioscience company needs laboratory for simple phytochemical screening for the presence of various classes of phytochemicals in an aqueous sample., The compound classes include: Alkaloids, Bioflavonoids, Cardiac glycosides, Carotenoids, Phenolics, Saponins, Sterols, Terpenoids, etc.
Test Request 17-01121
Bioanalytical laboratory needed that can analyse the substance identity of two different enzymes for the purpose of the European REACH Regulation. The following characteristics should be analysed:

Bioanalytical laboratory needed for 3rd party verification of a cryopreserved amniotic allograft tissue sample using an automoted cell counter: Countess II FL. A simple tri pane di exclusion test
The sample will be shipped next day on dry ice. We will need the testing to happen soon after arrival. The sample should be kept at -80 degrees celsius or in a liquid nitrogen freezer until testing is ready.
Once ready to test sample, simply pull the sample out and let thaw at room temperature.

FDA GLP and EPA Industrial Hygiene laboratory needed for antimicrobial efficacy testing of a organo-silane antimicrobial agent against a variety of viruses including Norovirus, H1N1, Rotavirus and Ebola to demonstrate efficacy. The active antimicrobial ingredient is CAS 27688-52-6 at 0.75% concentration in an aqueous solution.
Mode of action : organo-silane is applied to a clean surface and allowed to dry. Active ingredient copolymer bonds to the treated surface forming a biostatic film that is bound to the surface. Organisms are attracted to the bound long chain molecule and cell walls are are disrupted by the long carbon chain (lyses) and electrically disrupted by a positively charged nitrogen ion.
