Best Practices for MNC Isolation: Techniques by Tissue Type and When to Use Them
In this webinar we will discuss best practices for MNC isolation for several types of tissue based on researcher needs. We will outline techniques as they vary by cost, timing, ease, viability and availability. The webinar will conclude with examples of case studies on customized isolation projects provided by AllCells. Topics to be covered in the webinar: Intro Whole Blood Bone Marrow/Cord Blood Leuko Paks (Mobilized/Non-mobilized) Custom Isolation Case Studies Q&A
Case study: In vitro human primary cell based screening assays for vaccine adjuvant development
Once matured, Dendritic cells (DC) are capable of initiating and propagating an antigen-specific adaptive immune response. DC based immunotherapy is a promising treatment alternative for various solid tumor and hematological malignancies, an adaptive DC based response is also a goal for effective vaccines. Identifying novel, immunostimulatory drug candidates that can stimulate DC maturation is essential for development of such immunotherapies. In this webinar, Dr. Erin Harberts, from Prof. Robert Ernst’s group at the University of Maryland, Baltimore will present her work on rationally designed toll like receptor 4 (TLR4) ligands for vaccine adjuvant discovery.

Maximize your cell culture Technical tips for primary cells and cell analyses
For over a decade, ScienCell Research Laboratories has helped researchers with their cell culture experiments by providing expert advice. Our webinar will discuss primary cell culture optimization techniques and why primary cells are necessary for validation of cell line studies and in vivo experiments. In addition, we will discuss how you can advance your primary cell research by using our gene expression profiling kits.
Optimizing qPCR sensitivity and specificity
qPCR can be a powerful tool for analyzing gene expression. When designed properly, however its strength relies on the quality of the primers used in it. Our scientists know this and follow stringent guidelines to design primers for our GeneQuery qPCR arrays. When researchers design their own primers without comprehensive knowledge of good primer design, qPCR results can be inadvertently influenced yielding unreliable and inconsistent data. Our webinar will cover guidelines used by our scientists in designing our quality GeneQuery qPCR primers arrays while highlighting our human endothelial cell biology array. An extended FAQ session for your questions and concerns will follow. Objectives: Delineate frequently overlooked primer optimization parameters during qPCR design. Demonstrate the benefits of properly optimized primers in qPCR analysis. Exemplify the ease and use of GeneQuery qPCR arrays in gene expression analysis.
