The invention provides a new assay format for high throughput molecular binding studies at a single molecule level. The invention enables creation of binding event identifiers in a highly parallel way. Individual binding events occur between two agents of a binding pair, e.g., a protein-based binding pair or a binding pair comprising a protein and a chemical moiety. The binding event identifier created through the binding of the two binding agents is unique to that pair, and identification of the binding event identifier is indicative of the binding of these specific may be assessed through a readout that is digital in nature. The invention enables very large sets of thousands or more of different binding agents or potential binding agents to be assayed simultaneously, resolving millions or more of potential interactions, and distinguishing specific interactions from those that are less specific.

The present invention provides assays and assay systems for use in spatially encoded biological assays. The invention provides an assay system comprising an assay capable of high levels of multiplexing where reagents are provided to a biological sample in defined spatial patterns; instrumentation capable of controlled delivery of reagents according to the spatial patterns; and a decoding scheme providing a readout that is digital in nature.


A load characteristic estimation system includes: a program input unit into which a program that runs on a prescribed computer system is inputted; a program feature information acquisition unit that obtains features from the inputted program; and a load characteristic estimation unit that estimates a load characteristic of the inputted program by reading load characteristic information of another program having a feature similar to the inputted program, from a load characteristic recording unit that records a load characteristic produced in the prescribed computer system when the other program was run on the computer system in the past.

The present invention provides assay tools for the detection of biological or chemical activity in a sample. The assay tools of the invention provide direct detection using a positive signal generated on a surface of the assay tool. These assay tools provide improved methods for detection and/or identification of multiple agents (e.g., enzymes) in a sample, analysis of substrate specificity of such agents, and binding affinities and specificities of such agents. Upon activity a component is released from a first immobilised construct and then captured by a capture surface. At least two different immobilised constructs are used.

Provided herein are compositions and methods for detecting the binding of a peptide to an MHC molecule, and the binding of a peptide: MHC complex to a TCR. In preferred embodiments, the compositions and methods are in a highly-multiplexed way. The compositions and methods disclosed herein can be used to provide direct information on which peptides are bound to an MHC molecule. Also provided is a method for simultaneously detecting a large number of peptides for binding to an MHC molecule and/or a T cell. A method for detecting competitive binding of a large number of peptides to an MHC molecule and/or a T cell is also disclosed. Also provided herein is a method for simultaneously detecting a large number of specific TCRs. The compositions and methods of the present invention are useful for vaccine design, research and monitoring of autoimmune and infectious disease, immunogenicity testing of therapeutics, and tissue typing.
