Bite into hands-free, on-the-money buffer exchange with Unagi and Big Tuna

Bite into hands-free, on-the-money buffer exchange with Unagi and Big Tuna Webinar Date: 29 June, Wednesday Time: 8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CEST The Problem Your taste for biologics and gene therapy buffer exchange and concentration may vary between sample number and volumes, but your appetite for precise results never changes. You need to nail exact exchange and concentration targets without giving up your precious time handling your samples. The Solution Unagi is the first completely hands-free benchtop buffer exchange solution for up to 8 samples with starting volumes from 0.5 to 8 mL. Big Tuna is a fully automated, plate-based buffer exchange platform that can exchange and concentrate up to 96 samples in parallel with starting volumes from 100 μL to 8 mL. Both systems can further concentrate up to 48 mL of initial sample volume. Each deliver ≥ 96% recovery for protein, mAb, nucleic acid, LNP and AAV buffer exchange and concentration runs using the same innovative buffer exchange technology that provides uniform results and eliminates dead end ultrafiltration with 10, 30, and 100 kDa MWCO options. The Proof Learn how simple it is to set up a buffer exchange or concentration run for your biologics and gene therapy samples on Unagi and Big Tuna. We will show case studies for each platform to help you decide which is a better solution for automating your buffer exchange, gaining improved results, and saving precious time in the process. Learning Objectives: - Top challenges for buffer exchange of common biologics (mAbs and proteins) and gene therapy (AAVs, LNPs, nucleic acids) biomolecules - Benefits of BGTx biomolecule automated buffer exchange and concentration to save time - Benefits of programmable target buffer exchange and concentration values in saving time for downstream analysis

  • The advantages of liquid biopsies as a biospecimen for disease detection & monitoring
  • The composition of liquid biopsy samples and the importance of each analyte
  • Current Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) applications driving translational clinical research
  • A spotlight on Small RNA-Seq as an application for biomarker discovery
  • Emerging RNA-Seq applications for transcriptomics from liquid biopsies & the challenges
  Hosted by: Mohamed El-Mogy, M.Sc, Ph.D - Director of R&D Services Michelle Stopher - Key Account Manager   Abstract: Liquid biopsy samples are increasingly becoming one of the most valuable, minimally-invasive sources of information as the basis of diagnosis and disease monitoring as well as disease prevention. Biospecimens such as plasma, serum and urine contain various biomarkers that provide key insights into changes within the genome, epigenome, transcriptome and proteome of a patient. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is an extraordinary tool enabling researchers to dive deeper into the contents of liquid biopsy samples to advance discoveries in the fields of cancer research and complex disease genomics. In this webinar, we will discuss the various Next Generation Sequencing applications that can be explored which allow researchers to analyze the circulating analytes contained within liquid biopsy samples. We will focus a spotlight on Small (micro) RNA-Sequencing from cell-free RNA and RNA derived from exosomes, as an application for biomarker discovery and understanding cell to cell communication. We will also discuss the emerging field of transcriptome sequencing from cell-free RNA in liquid biopsy samples, the challenges of library preparation, and the immense potential of profiling circulating transcripts.   More about the Speakers: Dr. Mohamed El-Mogy is the Director of R&D Services at Norgen Biotek and has been with Norgen for over 12 years. Dr. El-Mogy’s background is in cell and molecular biology with an extensive focus in sample preparation and NGS applications. Michelle Stopher is a Key Account Manager for Norgen’s Next Generation Sequencing Services and has been working closely with some of the largest, most influential research institutions and companies for over 5 years at Norgen.

Seminar - How to Combine Cell Culture and Cell-Based Assays with Imaging

High quality images of cells, which have high spatial and temporal resolution, require not only the appropriate technical equipment to create them, but also careful attention to the sample preparation. This seminar will focus on how to link optimized cell culture with cell-based assays and high-end microscopy. ibidi produces specialized chambers, with specialized geometries and high optical properties, which allow micro-scopical analysis of living or fixed cells during cultivation, treatment within the same dish or slide. In addition, ibidi provides software online that provides fully automated quantitative analysis of cell behavior. Methods such as immunofluorescence, cell migration, and chemotaxis, as well as scientific data, will be presented to give a more in depth look at ibidi’ s integrated approach to cell-based assays. In this talk, we will be focusing on how to optimize the key application and providing an all-in-one solution in: • Live Cell Imaging • Immunofluorescence • Wound Healing and Cell Migration • Chemotaxis and Angiogenesis • Cell Culture Under Flow • 3D culture of spheroids and organoids
