Lumit Technology Webinar Series
Immunoassays are an essential tool for life science researchers that have been widely used for decades. Applying bioluminescent technology to this well-accepted assay format to create Lumit™ Immunoassays has made analyte detection faster and easier than ever before. This webinar series will introduce you to Lumit™ Immunoassay technology and highlight key research areas where bioluminescent immunoassays have supported research discoveries.
Part 1: Bioluminescent Analyte Detection with Lumit Immunoassays
In the first part of this series, we will introduce Lumit™ technology, a novel bioluminescent immunoassay platform, and discuss how the technology can be applied to a variety of assay formats. Dr. Dan Lazar from Promega will describe how bioluminescence makes immunoassays faster and easier, and how you can apply this technology to your research needs.

Part 3: Ask the Experts: Implementing Lumit™ Immunoassays
Join other Lumit™ users and experts for an interactive panel discussion on immunoassay technology. Submit your challenges with existing immunoassays and join in the discussion. R&D scientists and Technical Service Scientists will be available to answer your questions.
Dan Lazar, PhD, Martha O’Brien, PhD, and Hicham Zegzouti, PhD, Senior Research Scientists
Part 4: Advances in Glucagon Detection Supporting Diabetes and Metabolic Disorder Research
In the fourth part of this series, Drs. Donna Leippe, Promega, will introduce Lumit™ Glucagon and Insulin Immunoassays and David Piston, Washington State St. Louis, will describe how his lab uses islet perifusion as a key tool in their diabetes research. This model generates hundreds of samples per experiment and requires high-throughput immunoassays to measure insulin and glucagon secreted from the islets. See how Lumit™ Immunoassay technology speeds up the analysis of these samples, allowing you to get results faster.

Part 5: Optimizing IL-6 Detection for High-Throughput Screening
In the fifth part of this series, we will share best practices for high-throughput amenable immunoassays. Dr. Julie Conkright-Fincham, Promega, will discuss considerations for scaling assays from a single 96-well plate to many 384-well plates. Nick Verstraeten from Galapagos, a biotechnology company, will highlight optimization tips from their IL-6 screening campaign using Lumit™ detection technology.

Improved Forensic DNA Analysis with Spectrum CE and Eight-Color STR Technology
When time and samples are limited, getting a usable STR profile from every amplification is critical. Together, the Spectrum CE and eight-color PowerPlex® STR Systems maximize your chances of producing searchable profiles from degraded or inhibited casework samples in a timely manner. Compared to six-color kits, eight-color STR kits have more mini-STR loci that are less likely to drop out. When there are dropouts, the Quality Indicators help determine if it is due to degradation or inhibition, thus simplifying and streamlining follow-up actions. The four-plate capacity of the 8-dye-capable Spectrum CE System, with each plate being continuously accessible, improves forensic DNA laboratory productivity, eliminates the need to batch samples and reduces scheduling conflicts. Improving laboratory efficiency is key to reducing forensic casework backlogs, solving crimes and ensuring public safety. Join the Webinar to learn more.
