Implementing Digital PCR for Wastewater Disease Surveillance

Wastewater is a challenging matrix for establishing consistent molecular biology methods. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, wastewater surveillance has been widely accepted as an economical and unbiased tool for surveillance of outbreaks and disease dynamics in a population. As a result, methods for wastewater sample preparation and PCR detection are constantly being improved and optimized. Join us for this webinar where we will discuss the direct capture concentration and purification method in combination with digital PCR for quantifying SARS-CoV-2 levels in wastewater and tracking of variant circulation. We will also demonstrate how new data generated with improved methods can be matched to historical trending results.

Presenters:
Brigitta Saul, PhD, Sr. Global Commercialization and Marketing Manager, Promega Corporation
Martin Becker, PhD, Application Specialist, Stilla Technologies
Timothy R. Julian, PhD, Group Leader, Environmental Microbiology, Eawag

Resetting Expectations for CAR-T Potency Assessment – A Novel Target Cell Killing-Based Approach

Potency assays are an essential aspect of analyses of biotherapeutics, including CAR-T therapeutics. The potency assay format that will be used as a release assay for CTM (in a QC environment) needs to be as accurate, precise and robust as possible. Developing a robust potency assay for CAR-T therapeutics can be a long and complicated process. The mechanism of action of CAR-T cells – dubbed ‘living drugs’ – in-vivo is multi-faceted. Currently, target-cell killing and cytokine induction are two of the more prominent measures indicative of CAR-T potency in the cell therapy field. This webinar will provide the rationale and data that supports transitioning from current interpolation-based cytokine induction assays, with minimal number of dilutions (one), to full-curve analyses based upon MOA-reflective cellular responses.

Keeping it Real: Why P450 Assays are Required to Predict Human Drug Responses Using Liver-on-a-Chip

Despite billions in investment, most drugs never reach the market because preclinical experiments fail to predict human effects. Standard in vitro assays lack physiological relevance, whilst animal models lack human relevance. By better replicating human organs and tissues in the laboratory, PhysioMimix™ Organ-on-a-chip systems address these limitations. In this webinar, Dr. Darren Heywood from Promega will introduce assays optimized for 3D cell culture, including a suite of P450-Glo™ Assays. Dr Atefeh Mobasseri from CN Bio, will then discuss the use of Promega P450-Glo™ assay kit as a critical step in cell quality control to assess the metabolic activity of a liver-on-a-chip model. 

Presenters:
Darren Heywood, PhD, Product Manager – Cell Health, Promega UK

Current Gold Standards for MSI Testing and the Clinical Relevance of the MSI-H Biomarker

Historically MSI has been used to screen for Lynch syndrome, a dominant hereditary cancer propensity. Recently, MSI status has been rediscovered as a biomarker for immunotherapeutic response, making MSI status an increasingly relevant tool for genetics and immuno-oncology applications. In this webinar, we will discuss MSI testing gold standards and compare the different methods that are currently being used for MSI testing for mismatch repair deficient (dMMR) tumors. We will also discuss the clinical relevance of the MSI-H biomarker focusing on the pathological and epidemiological characteristics of MSI-H/dMMR tumors, and the role of MSI testing in Lynch syndrome screening, colorectal cancer patient prognosis, and immunotherapy treatment.
