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

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.

Presenter: Chelsea Grinols, MLS (ASCP)

A different approach to achieve a higher transfection efficiency

DNA transfection has become a powerful and popular research tool in cell and molecular biology studies. Understanding the underlying mechanisms and the different parameters affecting transfection is crucial for optimal, reproducible, and trustworthy results. Polyplus-transfection SA and Greiner Bio-One have investigated the influence of different surfaces on the overall cell growth and transfection efficiency.
