Promega Webinars

NA_webinarsConcept-image
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. Most presentations are 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.

How to Integrate Cellular Metabolism Assays Into Your Research: Considerations and Challenges

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Donna Leippe, PhD

Metabolite detection technologies can pose challenges such as laborious sample preparation and the inability to assay numerous samples rapidly. Additionally, lack of sensitivity and dynamic range prevents detection of metabolites directly in cells in multi-well plates. In this webinar, we describe new bioluminescent metabolite assays and sample processing strategies that enable rapid measurements of key energy metabolites in plate formats and show how the assays can be used to study cancer cell metabolism and activation of T cells.

Bioactivity Assays: Putting the Puzzle Together

Drug Discovery

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Ulrike Herbrand, PhD

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.

Applications of a Bioluminescent Peptide Tag: Simple, Quantitative Protein Detection Down to Endogenous Levels

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Christopher Eggers, PhD

Regulated protein abundance and surface expression are fundamental to normal cellular physiology and dysregulation underlies many disease states. Monitoring changes in protein abundance usually involves labor-intensive, antibody-based methods that yield only semi-quantitative results. This webinar will introduce a bioluminescent tagging system that can quantify proteins in minutes using simple, antibody-free methods. This system offers wide dynamic range and sensitivity compatible with detecting even endogenously expressed proteins when combined with CRISPR gene editing.

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.

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

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.

Faster Mass Spec: Same-Day Sample Prep Now a Reality

Proteomics

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Michael M. Rosenblatt, PhD

Traditional protocols require digestion times of up to 18 hours, as well as reduction and alkylation prior to digestion. These denaturants often inhibit enzymes and modify proteins, and require removal prior to analysis. What if you could shorten digestion times to ~30 minutes, without denaturants or reductants or alkylating agents?

Immune Checkpoint Bioassays Power Combination Immunotherapy

Drug Discovery

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Richard Somberg, PhD

Therapeutic antibodies designed to block or activate immune checkpoint receptors are a powerful new approach to the treatment of cancer and other diseases. However, due to their biologic complexity the development of therapeutic antibodies requires unique functional and analytical tools. Here we present a suite of MOA-based functional bioassays for use in antibody screening, characterization, potency testing and stability studies.

GTPase Biology: New Tools to the Rescue

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Subhanjan Mondal, PhD

Cell Signaling is key to controlling cell health, and one key signaling node is GTPases. Technical options to analyze the biochemical activities of this incredibly important class of proteins are very limited. To support the needs of the research community, we will present various novel ways to analyze GTPase functions.
