"Developed by Clariant, Sunliquid is an innovative and sustainable technology used to produce bio-ethanol. In this hour-long webinar, Clariant Group Leader Benjamin Fürst will introduce the process and describe how he and his team use modelling techniques to optimise fermentation processes.
Resources in process development for fermentation processes are always limited, often because of time constraints or the limited access to fermentation vessels. For this reason, optimal usage of the collected data is of paramount importance.
In this session, you will see how to maximise insights and understanding of the process by modelling data collected offline (like product titer and parameters of downstream processing) and online sensor data (such as pO2) in context of the Functional Data Explorer platform in JMP. The modelling approach is based on constant and functional factors and responses. Because of the limited design space, the new extrapolation control for the profiler plays an important role."

"The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the potential role that wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) can play in assessing aggregate community health. However, efforts to translate SARS-CoV-2 gene copy numbers obtained from wastewater samples into meaningful community health indicators are nascent. This work will highlight two efforts to promote the use of WBE: 1) comparison of SARS-CoV-2 wastewater measurements during a low-frequency and a high-frequency clinical testing period and 2) adoption of automated, high-throughput methods to enable state-wide monitoring in Kansas."
"The CDC estimates that nearly 48 million people fall ill and 3000 people die annually as a result of foodborne illness. Listeria is a concern due to the high percentage of fatalities that occur as a result of contracting Listeriosis. Many of these cases are preventable. During this virtual event, experts will discuss tangible best practices in Listeria detection, mitigation and control."

"Many of us have felt vibrations in a building. For example, you may have been sitting quietly working away at your desk, and a group of employees walks by. You felt the subtle vibration of the group as they passed, and it may have distracted you or stopped you from your work. This is similar to how vibration affects lab equipment. The vibration is transferred to the equipment, changing the testing or processes and even drastically affecting the outcomes.
Similarly, when working in an office environment, unwanted and startling noises can distract your concentration and can significantly impede your productivity. This also affects users in labs and, in many cases, impedes the function of noise-sensitive equipment, including very sensitive microscopes. Furthermore, labs with vivaria usually also need strict noise control to ensure that environmental factors do not disrupt the subjects’ behavior.
As the industry moves increasingly toward compact robotic automation, vibration control and treatment of acoustics are becoming a standard operating procedure in labs. In this webinar, lab design experts will weigh in on how to mitigate these issues and will provide strategies to improve and protect research outcomes."
"Invisible revenue cycle compliance and performance threats are the largest risks to a healthcare organization’s financial integrity. If undetected, these lead to poor payer relationships, payer recoupments, lower revenue, fines, audits, adverse contractual agreements, and, unfortunately, low industry reputation. The sooner you detect these threats, the less damage they can do.
Thankfully, recent innovations in the healthcare financial space have leveled the playing field in favor of laboratory executives. With the real-world application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the medical laboratory revenue cycle, laboratory executives can detect compliance and revenue performance threats in near-real-time, protecting their revenue performance and compliance, all while keeping existing investments in billing systems and revenue cycle management (RCM) partners. This may come as welcome news to laboratory executives who are caught in a costly reactive approach to lab claim denials, rejections, appeals, and other anomalies.
A new complimentary webinar from Dark Daily brings case examples of revenue management improvements gained from AI/ML in diagnostic laboratory billing, including compliance, operational key performance indicators, and actionable executive reporting. The free webinar will feature revenue cycle leaders who have leveraged advanced AI/ML to identify revenue performance and compliance opportunities, while proactively addressing and remediating financial issues that all labs face."

"Long before the pandemic, clinical laboratories were understaffed and tasked with an ever-increasing amount of demands as the industry shifted to a value-based care model. Now faced with the uncertainty of COVID-19 surges demanding more of an already strained system, recruiting and retaining staff has become harder than ever. These staffing challenges are due to a complex mix of burnouts, retirements, career changes, lack of qualified personnel, and other economic factors, but one issue remains clear—the clinical laboratory labor shortage has reached critical levels, and labs need to find better strategies to build and retain a stronger workforce. In this webinar, ARUP’s human resources and recruiting experts will discuss industry trends, successful strategies for recruiting the necessary staff to meet increased workloads, and creative tactics to retain and motivate current staff. Our experts will also answer questions from the webinar registrants to provide additional solutions on recruiting and retention."
"Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) have emerged as a concern at many sites as they are persistent, bioaccumulative, and have demonstrated toxicity in laboratory animals, therefore it is a critical need to understand their migration pathways and bioavailability for proper delineation and risk characterization. Although there are established grab sampling techniques available for PFAS, these capture the total concentration which may result in an overestimation of risk to human and ecological receptors. Passive sampling in sediment porewater and surface water is an accepted approach to assess bioavailability and risk through the dissolved phase of many known contaminants (i.e., PCBs, PAHs, pesticides, metals etc.). Given their partially water-soluble nature, a diffusion-based passive sampler is a good candidate for quantification of dissolved PFAS. This presentation will highlight both targeted and non-targeted results from in situ field testing of a novel passive sampler, SPFASsive, and compare these results with those obtained from traditional grab sampling."
