MIP Publication - A Novel Assay Format as an Alternative to ELISA: MINA Test for Biotin
In order to make more robust and fully abiotic assays, synthetic alternatives to antibodies and enzymes have been developed, including molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles (nanoMIPs). Researchers at Imperial College, London, University of Leicester, Leicester, and MIP Diagnostics Ltd. have recently collaborated on developing a proposed ELISA alternative using biotin specific nanoMIPs as both binders and reporters.

Using smart nanopolymers to kill old cells
NanoMIPs developed by MIP Diagnostics in collaboration with the University of Leicester have demonstrated their ability to target senescent cells, both in vitro and vivo. Such nanoMIPs were made to recognise one of the proteins abundant in on the surface of old cells and then tagged with a fluorescent molecule to aid in their detection. Also, these nanoMIPs were loaded with senolytic drugs and were able to selectively kill senescent cells.
