Cell Based Assay and Tissue Reconstruction in ThinCert Cell Culture Products

Ethical, scientific and financial concerns lead to an increasing importance of cell based assays and three-dimensional cell cultures in lieu of live-animal experimentation. With respect to these developments, ThinCert™ cell culture inserts with porous PET membranes are significant because they form a two-compartment system to readily mimic a variety of in vivo situations, such as:

1.  Cell migration and invasion,

2.  Interaction and communication of physically separated cell populations (co-culture)

3.  Trans-epithelial transport,

4.  Tissue growth and differentiation at the air-liquid-interface.

This presentation provides detailed insight in the different application fields of ThinCert™ cell culture inserts. Hints for the individual experimental design and the selection of the appropriate insert type are given.

Specimen Rejection: When is a Sample Unsuitable for Testing?

Join us as expert Beth Warning discusses the topic of specimen rejection. Attendees of this webinar will learn about the following:

1. Identify common preanalytic variables leading to specimen rejection. 

2. Review patient factors that may warrant rejection or recollection. 

3. Discuss effects on patient care when a sample is considered unsuitable. 

This webinar is offered at no charge.

A Q&A will be held at the end of the webinar to take attendee questions.

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.
