Development of a Microsatellite Instability Assay Utilizing Novel Long Repeats

Characterizing MSI status in challenging samples, including those with ambiguous results or small shifts, can be difficult. Endometrial and other cancers tend to have fewer, smaller marker shifts making MSI analysis cumbersome. Research suggests that mismatch repair deficiency causes proportionally more disruption to longer markers with repeat regions, particularly long mononucleotide repeats. This means shifts in longer markers tend to be greater thus more readily detected by fragment analysis. In this webinar, Dr. Samantha Lewis describes the development of a new PCR assay to detect MSI in solid tumors utilizing a new 8-marker panel that includes both gold standard markers and novel long mononucleotide repeats for a research-based approach to maximize sensitivity. She will also demonstrate the utility of this novel panel by showcasing studies using difficult and degraded samples (ccfDNA and FFPE).

The Selective Potential of Sub-Inhibitory Antibiotic Concentrations on Environmental Bacteria

During the last few decades, the continuous emergence of antibiotic resistance in clinics worldwide is leading to antibiotic therapy failure and the beginning of a post-antibiotic era. Join us for this webinar as our speaker, Concepcion Sanchez-Cid from the Environmental Microbial Genomics Group, describes using a combination of metagenomic approaches and qPCR/RT-qPCR to assess the effects of antibiotics on water bacterial communities, their associated resistome and the structure of class 1 integrons, which could be vectors towards human pathogens.

Presenter:
Concepcion Sanchez-Cid, PostDoc Researcher, Environmental Microbial Genomics Group, University of Lyon

Dates:
Wednesday, December 7, 2022 - 10am CST / 11am EST / 4pm London / 5pm Amsterdam-Paris

Performance of the OncoMate™ MSI Dx Analysis System

Screening cancer patients for microsatellite instability (MSI) can provide pathologists, oncologists, and patients with information that characterizes tumors to help guide care and make more informed decisions.  With the growing demand for MSI testing and recognition of its value as a biomarker, the need for a reliable and cost-effective MSI test has increased in recent years. In this presentation, Ms. Oostdik will discuss the new OncoMate™ MSI Dx Analysis System, a FDA-cleared PCR-based MSI kit. The system uses the most sensitive panel of markers for MSI status detection, as included in multiple clinical guidelines. Topics in this presentation will include assay design, intended use, and clinical performance of OncoMate™ MSI. The automated analysis software included in the system will also be discussed.
