ALERT

The iLab North American server has been restored and the site is now operational. Data, like submitted reservations and project requests are being migrated back into the site and we can assure you that no data has been lost. Data is being restored, starting with the most recent and as it is being added to the new search server, it will become available on the iLab site. Some items like billing invoices may not be visible on the site at this moment and during this time, users may experience some general slowness when using the site.

Translational Laboratory Shared Service (UMGCC)

Overview of Services

The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center (UMGCC) Translational Shared Service (TLSS) offers pre-clinical and clinical experimental support to basic researchers and physicians in the UMGCC community. We work in areas across the entire spectrum: cell biology, in vitro, in vivo and human trials. 

 

In Vitro Assays 

  • IC50 generation
  • Cell cycle (propidium iodide)
  • Viability (trypan blue exclusion)
  • Apoptosis
  • DNA Damage (Gamma-H2Ax Immunofluorescence)
  • Potentiation/Synergy
  • ROS
  • Western Analysis
  • Telomere Length Assay (QPCR)
  • Angiogenesis
  • Mycoplasma testing

 

Xcelligence 

  • Real time proliferation/invasion/migration

 

In Vivo Assays 

  • IACUC approved umbrella protocol
  • Tolerability:
  • Tumor Growth
  • Pharmacokinetics: generation of plasma
  • Efficacy (flank models)
  • Efficacy (orthotopic models)
  • Pharmacodynamic Endpoints
  • Imaging of cells with Xenogen System
  • Necropsy

 

Clinical Trial Support 

We isolate:

  • Plasma
  • Serum
  • Tumor Biopsy
  • Whole Blood (isolation of PBMC,
  • DNA, RNA, protein)
  • Bone Marrow (isolation of marrow
    cells)
  • Buccal Mucosa

 

Pharmacodynamic (PD) Endpoints 

  • in patient samples, tumor or surrogate tissues, preclinical samples
  • endpoint dependent on target (e.g., ELISA, flow cytometry, Western, unique assay)
