June 19, 2020. Welcome to the AMR – oCelloScope™ grant application.

BioSense Solutions is supporting research in Antibiotic resistance as this has the potential to affect people at any stage of life, as well as the healthcare, veterinary, and agriculture industries, making it one of the world’s most urgent public health problems.” (Source: CDC.GOV).

The oCelloScope™ is used by AMR researchers to get fast kinetic growth data and to look at early microbial morphology responses. The CDC has published several papers using the oCelloScope™ and the most recent can be found in full as preprint on BioRxiv.org: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.01.13.904995v1.abstract

 

Application criteria:

Grant appliers must be conducting research in AMR and more specifically be addressing at least one of the top 18 pathogens recognized by the CDC.

What will you get:

BioSense Solutions is offering a grant, value €4.000//$4.500. Grant value will cover the rental costs associated with having the oCelloScope™ in your own lab for a period of 3 months. The system will be supplied as plug and play with own PC and can both be run as a stand-alone unit or on an internal network. BioSense Solutions will host a web-meeting to help grant holder get started and be at disposal for technical questions during the grant period. The only associated cost for grant holder is the pure cost of freight back and forth and any import customs fee if applicable.

 

How to apply:

Submit your motivation (Max 1 page) by email to info@biosensesolutions.dk

Remember to include the following: First name, last name, telephone, mail, name of Institution, name of department/team, address, country, organism, what will you address, why will you address

Deadline: August 7, 2020

 

What we need from you:

To help us develop and to promote you and your work, we ask to receive a successful job using the oCelloScope™. We are solely interested in the technology side and will not ask for any critical science details interfering with your publishing strategy.

Automatic pipetting and real-time microscopy combined – 

a new collaboration between Flow Robotics and BioSense Solutions has started.

 

With a demanding need for high-throughput screening solutions BioSense Solutions and Flow Robotics are now working together to achieve a combination of automatic pipetting with automatic non-invasive, real-time microscopy.

With this unique combination between flowbot ONE pipetting robot and oCelloScope, it will now be possible to monitor the reaction/development in each well right from the start of the dispense of the active reagent.

With the rapid scanning capabilities off oCelloScope, it will be possible to monitor and create time-lapse videos of fast dissolution processes, such as Para-Aminobenzoic Acid dissolution in ethanol which has been scanned every 8.5 seconds in oCelloScope.
