Upcoming Webinars

High-Resolution Mapping of Genome-Wide Protein DNA Binding using CUT&RUN and CUT&Tag

April 28th, 8:30AM PDT

CUT&RUN and CUT&Tag are two powerful methods to reliably map protein DNA interactions, primarily for histone modifications, transcription factors, and other epigenetically relevant markers. Compared to established methods pursuing the same goal they are characterized by an exceptionally high signal to noise ratio, superior resolution, and an easy workflow. Since their inception in 2017 and 2019 respectively, both methods have been widely adopted and several variations for specific experimental settings have been conceived.
The webinar will provide a short introduction into CUT&RUN and CUT&Tag and some variations as well as their differences to alternative methods such as ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq. Lastly, we discuss antibodies-online antibodies and other products for CUT&RUN and CUT&Tag.

Join Scientist.com and antibodies-online for this live presentation followed by a Q&A.

Leukopak Processing: Tips & Tricks for Streamlined Cell Isolation

March 31st, 8:00AM PDT

Leukopaks are highly concentrated, low-volume apheresis collections that contain large numbers of mononuclear cells (MNCs). As an essential source of primary immune cells for drug development research, leukopaks are an ideal starting material for downstream cell isolation when large numbers of cells are required. This webinar highlights insights and techniques for efficient leukopak sample processing to reduce the time and reagents required to process cells of interest.

Maximize your chances of success: Avoid and Mitigate Risk of Failure when Developing Biotherapeutics

March 10th, 4:00 PM CET

Advancing your drug or vaccine candidate from late-stage discovery into the clinic is one of the most critical steps in development. This is the phase when you make key decisions that will have long-term scientific and business impact, frequently under extreme time and cost pressure. For example, developability and manufacturability issues can arise due to post-translational modifications and aggregation, and immunogenicity risks due to the presence of T-cell epitopes.

Targeting SARS-CoV-2: A Suite of Assays to Accelerate Drug Discovery

November 5th, 1pm EST

Webinar by Reaction Biology. Targeting SARS-CoV-2: A Suite of Assays to Accelerate Drug Discovery on November 5th, 2020 and 1pmEST. webinar graphic and advertisement for life science virtual eventTo support the drug discovery community with the challenge to identify efficacious COVID-19 drugs, we have developed specific assays to block SARS-CoV-2 virus entry and replication. In this presentation we looked at biochemical protease assays we have in our COVID panel, including host proteases which enable viral entry (TMPRSS2, Furin, and Cathepsin L), as well as viral proteins involved in viral polyprotein processing (PLpro and Mpro). Next, we discussed our SPR assays for targeting viral entry by testing molecules that can block the interaction between the viral Spike protein (specially looking at the receptor binding domain in this work) and the host protein ACE2.

Reducing, Refining and Replacing the Use of Animals in Research

November, 2019

Meaghan Loy, MS, ALAT, SOT Associate Member and Category Director of In Vivo Services at Scientist.com hosted the  3-part webinar series that focused on animal welfare within scientific research. We collaborated with the UK’s National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement & Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) to co-host the series and had guests from  Mimetas, Hera Biolabs, and Sinclair Research to offer their technologies and solutions. Each webinar in the three-part educational series focused on the 3Rs of Animals in Research—Replacement, Reduction and Refinement—which are key factors in improving animal welfare in all types of research. Replacing animals with in vitro or in silico methods, reducing the numbers of animals used and refining procedures to reduce pain and distress are all critical to overall welfare. The 3Rs help us fulfill our moral and ethical obligations to the animals that have allowed many of the most important modern medical advances to occur. As straightforward as the 3Rs may sound, they can present a unique set of challenges upon implementation. It’s easy to continue conducting the same tried and true studies, but there are many recent innovations that researchers may not be aware of.
