Webinar: What are the important considerations for centrifugation in the bioprocess workflow?

September 24 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

"Centrifuge separates particles by density but do you know what type centrifuges are used at the different steps of a bioprocess workflow and what are important considerations? How contamination can jeopardize integrity of the product and operator safe working condition at each harvest, clarification, purification and concentration working step? Why scalability should be considered right at the R&D scale? What are batch traceability methods? And how to obtain most uptime of your equipment.

This presentation will:
• Review the bioprocess applications where the centrifuges play an important part.
• Explore the importance of the contamination control, the scalability, the traceability and the reliability.
• Discover the ways the centrifuge addresses these considerations in the bioprocess workflow by examining the data."

Webinar: The Expanding Role of Diagnostic Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory

October 9 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

"As the primary diagnostic tool for infectious diseases, traditional culture techniques are coming under scrutiny for failing to universally detect infections resulting from biofilms, viable but non-culturable (VBNC) bacteria, and persister microbial cells in patients. In the presence of infectious symptoms and other biomarkers suggestive of active disease, such negative culture results may delay appropriate treatment or result in treatment failure with an antimicrobial agent insufficient to resolve the infection. Advances in the speed, affordability, and utility of information offered from Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) results made available to the clinical laboratorian and to treating clinician argue for an expanded role for coincident culture along with NGS testing in those patients with either an acute or a chronic infection."

"In this webinar we will discuss:

* The limitations inherent in traditional microbiological culture techniques, including how biofilms, viable but non-culturable bacteria, and persister cells influence the diagnosis and treatment of these infections.
* The added value afforded from coincident culture plus NGS testing in making timely clinical decisions, resulting in improved patient outcomes and precision antimicrobial stewardship outcomes.
* How coincident culture and NGS testing may enhance and improve diagnostic microbiology."

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."
