Sample Storage Tubes as Quality-Critical Components in Biobanking

Biobanks store biological samples and associated data to make them available for clinical studies as well as research on biomarkers, personalised medicine and public health. The paramount goal of Biobanking is the preservation of sample integrity during all steps of sample collection, processing, storage and delivery; hence, factors influencing the sample quality during these steps need to be understood and controlled.  Register for a 60 minute webinar discussing the following topics in regards to the effects of storage tubes in biobanking. 


  1.          cleanliness of tube raw material,
  2.          tube closure systems and their suitability for long-term storage,
  3.          biomolecule adsorption onto the tube surface,
  4.          datamatrix codes for tube identification,
  5.          quality of the datamatrix barcodes,
  6.          guidelines for good practice in Biobanking.

A new approach in adventitious virus testing in biopharmaceutical production

In cooperation with INFORMA we perform a webinar to introduce the new ViroInspect® Rodent 2 Test Kit for the detection and identification of viruses in biological materials.

Overview of the presentation:

  • Contamination of cell cultures by viruses is a fundamental problem for the manufacture of biopharmaceutical products
  • Biopharmaceutical production must comply with different legal requirements and regulatory bodies all over the world
  • Cell culture and in vivo susceptibility test are still used as standard methods but suffer from many disadvantages such as time, sample throughput, serviceability, specificity, sensitivity, ethical aspects and overall costs
  • New techniques for rapid and comprehensive virus detection have been developed and validated in accordance with legal guidelines
  • With results delivered in less than 9 hours, ViroInspect® Rodent 1 and Rodent 2 from Greiner Bio-One are a rapid and effective alternative to cell culture and in vivo testing

Webinar Date: June 1st, 2016 – 15.00 CET / 14.00 BST / 9.00 EDT

Phlebotomy Draw Volumes: Contribution to Hospital-Acquired Anemia

This webinar will be held on October 22nd, 2015 at 1:00pm eastern time. The event will last 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.
