Webinar: Modernizing Academic Research with Cutting-Edge Software

"Academics are the pioneers of advancing science and technology, yet often use outdated practices when it comes to data management and lab maintenance. Expensive state-of-the-art equipment shared across campus can be inadequately maintained and cumbersome to retrieve experimental data from. While research sparks innovation, the processes to manage the instruments and lab equipment are either antiquated or unaffordable in academia.

Join us in this webinar to learn how two technology companies are committed to helping address challenges and modernize scientific research and operations ..."

Webinar: Risk Groups and Biosafety Levels—What’s the Difference?

"There are four risk groups and four biosafety levels which unfortunately can lead lab workers to equate the two terms. Although the two are related, the missing link between them is a risk assessment. We will start out by defining risk groups and a discussion of how to use them as a starting point to determine the risk of an infectious agent. Through exploration of the various additional factors that should be considered for this type of work we will get to an understanding of the risks involved and the methods that are employed to mitigate those risks. It is this collection of controls that we define as biosafety levels."

Webinar: Natural History Data Curation: Maintaining Infrastructures and Turning Documents Into Datasets (DCMI)

"Natural history collections constitute an important and complex knowledge infrastructure. The heterogeneous data in these collections include specimens, genomes, field notes, ecological monitoring data, and more -- all of which have huge potential for reuse in biodiversity, medicine, climate science, agriculture, and many other domains. However, facilitating this integrative reuse requires first maintaining the fragile infrastructures used to store and share these data, and second, novel approaches to migrating data from legacy (and often analog) formats into datasets that are more fit-for-use. In this webinar, Dr. Thomer will discuss findings from two projects tackling natural history data curation: one focusing on the maintenance and migration of natural history databases, and another on the digitization and mobilization of historical data. The webinar will be of interest to those working with similar collections, as well as those interested in the maintenance of knowledge organization, knowledge infrastructures and the integrative reuse of scientific data. This webinar is hosted by the DCMI Education Committee and will be moderated by Dr. Karen Wickett."

Virtual Conference: Cannabis Infused Products

"This complimentary virtual conference consists of four back-to-back webinars, all on the same day. We will delve into topics such as GMPs, nano emulsion, culinary science, food safety for edibles and more.

In a number of states across the country, edibles, topicals, beverages and other infused products are taking up a larger percentage of the market share. They come in all shapes and sizes- from granola bars to lotions, lubricant and scented candles; manufacturers are infusing a wide variety of products with cannabis, creating a market that meets a larger consumer demographic.

Different states have different rules when it comes to product safety. Some states require ServSafe training and local health inspections, while others have more stringent lab testing rules, require documented GMPs and even a form of certification demonstrating proper food safety protocols.

State regulations shouldn’t be the reason why infused products manufacturers have robust safety and quality standards, consumer safety is. Getting ahead of regulations with proactive safety and quality planning can improve a business’s bottom line tremendously. There are a number of tools and tricks cannabis companies can learn from the food industry to streamline their businesses and gain a bigger chunk of the market share."

Webinar: Clinical and Public Health Laboratory Perspectives on Antifungal Resistance

"The goal of this seminar is to provide an understanding of the current issues in antifungal resistance.

Webinar: Building a Literacy Pedagogy Framework for Approaching Visualization of Archival Data (SIG-VIS)

"While archival skills training is inevitable most digital specialists can increase their literacies through workshops, self-didactic methods, or formal certification and degree programs. Because archives are so unique, literacy pedagogy frameworks may vary from one institution to the next but critical literacies such as archival (and digital archival), data, visual, and computer literacies will lend consistency to such frameworks and methods. This webinar addresses two joint concerns: among visualization experts, the need to understand archival description practices; and among archivists, to prepare metadata for visualization. While it focuses on the visualization of archival data, it also aims to inform methods already in use by digital archivists, data scientists, and others interested in visualizing archival collections."

Webinar: The Analytical Landscape of Cannabis Testing – Session 2: Pesticides by GC-MS/MS

"Cannabis pesticide testing is challenging due to the variety of pesticides analyzed, low level detection expectations and the challenging matrix that cannabis and cannabis-infused products often present. In this webinar, Dr. Dhandapani will be presenting advances in GC manufacturing technology that can help to solve separation challenges such as analyte breakdown, peak shape, sensitivity and column bleed issues in pesticide analysis.

Dr. Kirk Jensen will present on the capabilities of the JMS-TQ4000GC triple-quadrupole GC-MS/MS and the patented short collision cell technology contained therein, followed by its performance for testing cannabis samples for pesticide content. Sample workflow, instrument parameters, and results from sample testing will also be covered."

Webinar: How To Future Proof Your Laboratory Informatics Environment

"Most laboratory informatics environments require a diverse number of applications each with distinct functions (e.g., sample management, instrument control, data acquisition and interpretation, calculation and reporting of results). The main aims of such informatics applications are to meet regulatory compliance and data integrity objectives; however, hybrid systems can present major challenges for laboratories.

A laboratory automation/digitisation strategy, alongside senior management support, funding and resourcing, is crucial for defining the steps required to automate the laboratory over several phases. The objective of this webcast is to highlight ways to ensure that your investments in laboratory informatics applications are sound and long-lasting."
