Upcoming Webinar – Developing and Optimizing Cell-based Microplate Assays

28 Nov 2012 - 28 Nov 2012 - Webinar - Online

Bookmark and Share

Looking to perform a microplate cell-based assay for the first time or would like to develop a higher throughput for your current cell-based assay? On November 28th at noon EST a webinar will be hosted by Drug Discovery and Development and BMG LABTECH, the Microplate Reader Company, to discuss developing and optimizing cell-based assays in a microplate format.
Many researchers look to translate their biochemical microplate assay to a cell-based format because biochemical assays can be limiting and misleading in the information that they provide. This growing trend has caused a surge in the development of many new cell-based microplate assays, as well as new developments in the instrumentation used to optimize these cell-based microplate assays.

In this webinar, three speakers will present some of the different aspects involved in developing and optimizing cell-based assays in a microplate format. Please join us to learn more about:

•    Optimizing Measurements for Microplate Cell-based Assays; Catherine Wark, BMG LABTECH, UK
•    Miniaturization and Automation of HTRF® Cell-based Assays with the Echo® Liquid Handler; Bonnie Edwards, Labcyte, Inc., USA
•    Identification and characterization of allosteric modulators of GPCRs using an HTRF® cellular assay; Jeff Jerman, PhD, MRC Technology, UK

Join us on: Wednesday, November 28th at 12:00 EST. Participation in this webinar is free and we look forward to you joining us. For more information visit:
