The AlphaLISA TruHits kit is designed as a tool for AlphaLISA users to identify the type of hit they have achieved during screening of compounds. The AlphaLISA TruHit kits can also be used as controls when testing the performance of an Alpha enabled instruments independently of any biology.
This kit includes AlphaLISA BSA-biotin Acceptor beads and Streptavidin Alpha Donor beads which interact together to generate an AlphaLISA signal. The excitation of the Donor beads provokes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm. The AlphaLISA TruHits kit allows the identification of inner filters, light scatterers (insoluble compounds), singlet oxygen quenchers and biotin mimetics interfering with the AlphaLISA signal, and thus facilitates the detection of false positives.

Drug Repurposing can be an effective way to identify treatments for diseases, especially when time is of the essence.
Research scientists at National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a part of the NIH, embarked on a drug repurposing strategy as the quickest route to generating data that would help the pharma industry drive towards an effective treatment for the COVID-19 virus.
Find out how in a matter of months the NCATS team was able to screen 3,384 molecular entities and narrow them down to a field of 25 quality "hits" capable of disrupting SARS-Cov-2 S1 protein:ACE2 receptor binding in this case study.
The AlphaLISA Acceptor beads are coated with biotinylated bovine serum albumin (BSA). The, Alpha Donor beads are coated with streptavidin.
