Webinar: The bread and butter method of genomics: How to improve your (q)PCR

September 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

"PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) has gone through a massive evolution since its development in 1983. Besides its age of 36 years it is still a core component of numerous complex applications. The PCR is the workhorse method in virtually every molecular biology laboratory and the gold standard in countless analytical assays.

Despite its broad usage, there are several factors that need to be considered to design a successful PCR experiment. Starting from more apparent things like temperature settings and DNA template quality to less known factors as pipetting techniques and used consumables, this webinar covers multiple ways to improve your PCR. In addition, we will also take a closer look at the special requirements of qPCR as probably the most common used variant of traditional PCR."

Astrix Webinar – Digital Data Strategy for the Lab

September 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

A webinar sponsored by the Astrix Technology Group
Date: Thursday, September 12th, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM PDT


Overview:

Laboratory informatics systems have often been implemented in a bottoms-up “transactional” manner: CDS, LIMS, ELN, LES, etc. are brought in to deliver specific capabilities in an organic fashion. As these implementations mount, there are several significant implications, some of which are:

  • Overlaps among the systems become critical factors in the quality of information produced and determination of authoritative data.
  • Obtaining an end to end picture of the data from a scientific process requires significant depth of knowledge in and access to many systems.

At the same time, there are significant business drivers that are putting additional pressure on laboratory information, some of which are:

  • Handling of increasingly diverse drug products.
  • Meeting the increasing needs of the R&D organization to be flexible and responsive.
  • Improving the systematic management of product data and processes where data consistency and availability are critical.

This webinar will address these challenges by framing the current state and discussing opportunities and approaches to a achieving a holistic digital strategy for the lab, one that encompasses the relationships between systems and the lifecycle of data. ​ Representative initiatives and roadmaps will be discussed emphasizing a pragmatic and actionable point of view.

Webinar: Interoperability: Keeping the Patient at the Center of Healthcare

September 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

"With information for 17 million patients, size is just one dimension of Manifest MedEx (MX), California's largest nonprofit health data network. Millions more data points are layered on to facilitate interoperability across combined clinical and claims data.

In recognizing early on how crucial it was that its platform could scale to handle the state's growing population and constantly evolving integrations, MX sought out a highly scalable clinical data repository and data warehouse, an enterprise master patient index solution, and an integration engine. The health network also wanted to retain its existing IP around HL7 interfaces.

This webinar will provide an in-depth look at how InterSystems technology and AWS are helping MX to connect the dots on every patient record, delivering the information California payers and providers need as they move toward value-based care."

Webinar: PTM Analysis: How to Marry Speed and Confidence in R&D

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

"Even the most well-controlled LC-MS methodologies are subject to a wide array of variables such as LC conditions, type of mass spectrometer, data acquisition rates, etc. All of these variables can impact the raw data. Regardless, the investigator will ultimately end up with an uneditable raw mass spectrometry data file in a vendor-specific format. While this locked, uneditable file in theory represents a firm and fixed point at which experimental variability ceases, the reality is that downstream software analysis can introduce as much or more variability in the dataset than that derived from instrumentation and sample prep.

In this webinar, Jon Reed will focus on how an automated, vendor-neutral software analysis of PTMs in biotherapeutics can be optimized for speed, and provide a framework from which data can inform confident decisions in a research environment."

Webinar: Cybersecurity While Traveling

September 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

"Recommendations for cybersecurity while traveling abroad often sound like they were taken directly from the plot of a spy movie: use clean “throw-away” devices, accounts, and passwords; assume you’ll be compromised. Similar, although slightly less scary, recommendations abound for travelers going on vacation: don’t post your location online; don’t use public WiFi. In this presentation, the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) will provide insight into the targeting, theft, scams, and espionage that have driven the creation of these often-touted recommendations so you can intelligently choose which recommendations are appropriate for your next trip."

Webinar: Moving Beyond Single Gene-Drug Pairs in Clinical Pharmacogenomics Testing

September 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT

"Pharmacogenomics (PGx) studies the associations between discrete variants in single genes and the phenotype for specific aspects of a drug’s pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics. These associations are used to qualify patients for therapy (e.g., CYP2C19 and clopidogrel), to avoid drug-related adverse events (e.g., TPMT and mercaptopurines), and to optimize drug and dose selection (e.g., CYP2D6 and several antidepressants). However, clinical PGx testing based on single gene-drug associations has limited clinical utility when patients take more than one medication. For some drugs, limitations of single gene-drug associations may be mitigated by combining the testing of several pharmacogenes based on single gene-drug associations along with clinical and demographic factors. Emerging evidence shows the benefits of multi-gene panels in clinical PGx testing. This presentation will review examples of single and multi-gene PGx testing applied to drug therapy decisions."

Webinar: Identity and Access Management for Healthcare

September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

"Ten years ago, most health system information technology leaders didn’t have Identity and Access Management at the top of their priority lists. Provisioning and deprovisioning was primarily a manual operation, done by the IT staff. But today most CIOs and CISOs recognize the need for a detailed and sophisticated IAM strategy. Join us for this panel discussion and get industry expert input on what changed and what’s next:

* Escalating enforcement of HIPAA and HITECH mandates
* Increasingly grievous cyber security threats
* Compliance and efficiency requirements for EPCS"
