Promega Webinars

Welcome to the Promega Webinar Series, an ongoing communication designed to keep you informed. Learn about basic concepts, tips and techniques to help your research, or understand how products were designed and how to implement in your lab. All presentations will be given by Promega scientists and you will have an opportunity to interact with our Technical Service Scientist directly during live events via chat. The webinars are free though we do ask that you register for the events. Registration allows us to send you the URL for the webinar.

Y-Screening and Direct Amplification of Sexual Assault Evidence Kit Samples

Genetic Identity

Monday, October 31, 2016

Ms. Amy McGuckian
Technical Leader
Forensic Biology Unit
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office

Dr. Anupama Gopalakrishnan
Product Manager
Genetic Identity
Promega Corporation

Screening for sperm in sexual assault samples is a laborious process with limited sensitivity compared to male DNA detection by amplification. Direct amplification of casework samples reduces the potential for DNA loss during purification, a special concern with low-template samples. In this webinar, Promega presents an overview of the Casework Direct Kit, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office describes how they plan to use the kit in their sexual assault evidence processing.

The Key Role of FcR Activating Antibodies in Generating "Sterilizing" Immunity Against Herpes Simplex Virus

Drug Discovery

Tuesday, November 08, 2016

Betsy Herold, MD

Antibody dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) is an important immune effector mechanism against tumor and virus-infected cells. In recent years, ADCC has emerged as an important protective immune correlate in a number of vaccine studies for HIV and influenza. This webinar will highlight recent studies demonstrating the central role of FcR functions in vaccine-mediated protection against HSV-1 and HSV-2 infection, challenging the existing paradigm that high titer neutralizing antibodies are required.

RNA-Based Gene Fusion Detection: Next Generation Sequencing Applications and Sample Workflow Improvements


Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Joshua Stahl, M.Sc., ArcherDx, Inc.

This webinar will detail the advantages of gene fusion detection via RNA-Seq methods and enhancements that can be gained through improvements in nucleic acid purification protocols.

SoftGenetics GeneMarker®HID: A User’s Perspective

Genetic Identity

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Jessica Seifarth

SoftGenetics introduced themselves to the forensic DNA community by offering a new alternative in STR analysis, GeneMarker®HID. Since their initial launch, GeneMarker®HID has been gaining traction by continuously developing new advancements. Papers have already been published illustrating the software’s capabilities of generating accurate and reliable results. This webinar will focus on a user’s capabilities within the GeneMarker®HID software. The ultimate goal is to illustrate the ease of use, benefits, and additional features for a forensic DNA analyst.

Bioactivity Assays: Putting the Puzzle Together

Drug Discovery

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Ulrike Herbrand, PhD, Charles River Laboratories

In past years, the requirement for bioactivity testing changed from later phase lot release and stability testing to additional applications like biocomparability testing for follow-on biologics, accelerated stress condition testing and confirmation of successful production scale up. Therefore a suitable bioassay is needed at a very early time point. This webinar will look at a wide variety of therapeutic proteins and illustrate some best practices in method development that results in reliable, reproducible and precise assays, and discuss which assays may be best for your product and development program.

Isolation of Circulating Tumor DNA from Archived Plasma Samples for Downstream Digital Droplet PCR and Next Generation Sequencing Approaches


Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Andrew Benjamin Nixon, PhD, MBA, Duke University School of Medicine

This webinar will explore circulating cell-free DNA workflows for biomarker discovery and downstream NGS analysis of tumor samples in a research environment.
