Preventing Specimen Rejection in the Collection of Non-Blood Samples

During the course of this 60 minute, P.A.C.E.® accredited webinar, attendees will achieve the following program objectives:


1. Identify best practices in collection of non-blood specimens.

2. Review situations resulting in rejection of non-blood specimens.

3. Explain the potential patient impact caused by inadequate specimen collection.

Optimising transfection as a starting point for bioproduction

Bioproduction describes the manufacturing process of biological compounds such as recombinant proteins or antibodies. Essential for all subsequent processing steps is the establishment of a well-performing starter culture. An optimised transfection in small scale is one of the first steps to successfully create a stable or transiently protein-producing cell line.
In this webinar, we will give an overview on the bioprocessing workflow with an emphasis on how transfection conditions influence the outcome of protein production.

Covered topics:

  • Introduction into bioproduction and transient protein production
  • Experimental conditions: transfection, protein expression, cell viability, scalability
  • Troubleshooting
  • Q&A

This webinar will be held on June 02nd, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. CET.

Phlebotomy Draw Volumes: Contribution to Hospital-Acquired Anemia

This webinar was held on October 22nd, 2015 at 1:00pm eastern time. The event lasted for approximately 60 minutes and each participant will receive 1.0 P.A.C.E credit hour for attending. 

Several studies have shown evidence of diagnostic laboratory testing as a major contributor to hospital-acquired anemia (HAA). The frequency and volume of blood collection leads to blood loss from laboratory testing (BLLT), which can be significant in hospitalized adults. Over time, this excess blood collection can lead to lower hemoglobin concentrations. We will discuss the effects of hospital-acquired anemia (HAA) and how laboratories can participate in preventing it.

Points of discussion in this webinar will include:

-  Define hospital-acquired (iatrogenic) anemia (HAA) and describe the primary causes.

-  Describe how laboratory practice and ordering patterns contribute to HAA.

-  Describe possible solutions to prevent HAA.
