Webinar: Mitigating risks and optimizing security of supply in diagnostics

September 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

"The supply chain ends with the patient, and patient safety is paramount. Diagnostic accuracy, drug purity and availability are crucial. A concerted security of supply effort drives risk out of manufacturing operations that deliver quality products to market. Manufacturing and material handling are more integrally tied to assay accuracy than ever before.

Join David Raw to discuss the importance of a collaborative, data-driven approach to analyzing supply risk and building solid foundations improving security of supply to meet the expectations of diagnostics customers. Hear how the learnings gained from unprecedented events help us to continually improve and find ways to modify product and workflow choices to reduce supply risks."

Webinar: BIM and Virtual Design + Construction in Lab Design

September 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is a proven delivery method that utilizes people, process, and technology to design and build to your vision and goals. By bringing together the design team, construction managers, and subcontractors early in the planning phase, VDC uses the power of intelligent collaboration to design and build to your goals and objectives. When combined with our industry-leading model first approach, the Building Information Modeling (BIM) is infused with data useful for builders and facility managers.

Many of the existing tools are employed 'after the fact,' a means of documenting what has already been planned. They are very useful in the development of laboratory designs—but what if we can push this technology up the food chain and use them during programming and project definition? The purpose of this webinar is to acquaint the audience with the traditional use of BIM and virtual simulations but also to propose a methodology which leverages these tools with the use of Virtual Design and Construction to examine the impacts of early decisions in programming and planning on cost and operations in real-time so that the appropriate planning approach may be made. We will show how a program with characterized elements may be manipulated in 3D to generate real options with ramifications of cost and operations to allow our clients to make informed decisions on their projects’ aspects."

Lab Testing in the 21st Century

October 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
  • Date: October 1st | 1PM EDT
  • Company:  Biovia/Dassault
  • Presenter:  Gene Tetreault, Senior Director, Product Management, Dassault Systemès/ BIOVIA

Labs in the 21st century are not working as they did in the past. Workflows are digital and connected, environments are harmonized and standardized, lab scientists are collaborating across borders. This requires an intelligent scientific platform that is aware of the context in which scientists operate.

Within this framework, scientists should also be able to access and leverage supply, services and expertise within the internal and external networks. This framework will accelerate product design and development, while also saving time and costs for scientists.

Webinar: Driving lab efficiency with PCR power

October 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

"Detection and/or amplification of target DNA sequences by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a prevalent method in molecular biology. PCR has a broad range of applications, including use in research for infectious diseases, cancer, forensic analysis, and agricultural biotechnology.

Now, more than ever, researchers need ways to increase lab efficiency and productivity. While the fundamental principles of PCR have remained the same over the years, vast improvements have been made to DNA polymerases, instrumentation, and plastic consumables to streamline PCR and provide solutions for challenging research applications.

In this webinar, we will cover time-saving tips to help increase your PCR productivity. We will address common PCR pitfalls that can be avoided with innovations in enzymes, instruments, and plastics. We will also discuss PCR tools that are available to researchers who wish to push PCR boundaries to overcome research limitations."
