New High-Throughput Method for Elastin-like Polymer (ELP) Coacervate Analysis

弹性蛋白聚合物(ELP)凝聚层分析的新型高通量方法

December 2018 — A recent study by researchers from the University of New England and University of New Hampshire has demonstrated that flow imaging microscopy is an accurate, more efficient, and more informative method of elastin-like polymer (ELP) coacervate analysis than standard methods.ELP coacervates are a class of molecules with promising applications in drug delivery vehicles, tissue engineering, environmental remediation, and more. ELP coacervate architecture is stimuli-responsive and highly tunable, making them ideal for the above-mentioned applications.

2018年12月 - 新英格兰大学和新罕布什尔大学的研究人员最近的一项研究表明,与标准方法相比,流动成像显微镜是一种准确,更有效,信息更丰富的弹性蛋白样聚合物(ELP)凝聚分析方法。 ELP凝聚层在作为药物递送的载体,组织工程,环境修复等方面具有广阔的应用前景。 ELP凝聚层结构具有刺激响应性和高度可调性,使其成为上述应用的理想选择。

Standard methods for ELP coacervate analysis are indirect and cumbersome. Data from Visible-UV spectrophotometer turbidity measurements and dynamic light scattering (DLS) size measurements are superimposed to evaluate the formation of micron-scale aggregates, and particle geometry is constructed indirectly from diffusion data. Imaging analysis methods such as optical, electron, and scanning probe microscopy are useful methods to acquire size and shape data, however it is time-consuming and laborious to acquire a large enough sample size to get statistically significant data.

ELP凝聚层分析的标准方法是间接和麻烦的。 来自可见 - 紫外分光光度计浊度测量和动态光散射(DLS)尺寸测量的数据被叠加以评估微米级聚集体的形成,并且颗粒几何形状间接地由扩散数据构建。 诸如光学,电子和扫描探针显微镜之类的成像分析方法是获取尺寸和形状数据的有用方法,然而获得足够大的样本大小以获得统计上有效的数据是耗时且费力的。

In this study by the University of New England and University of New Hampshire, the size, morphology, and behavior of ELP coacervates subjected to various solvent conditions were measured and observed using the FlowCam particle analyzer. Results were validated by comparison with DLS and atomic force microscopy analyses. Flow imaging microscopy was demonstrated to be a successful method for ELP coacervate analysis.Additionally, flow imaging microscopyreported additional findings that were not measured using the DLS, microscopy, or Visible-UV spectrophotometry.
