The Advantages of Molecular Diagnostics: Rapid and Accurate Results

On-Demand
When designing molecular diagnostic tests, different parameters are of interest to evaluate, for example, sensitivity, specificity, dynamic range, turnaround time and user friendliness. Which parameters are most important depends on application and may require extensive optimization. Examples will be discussed based on quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) and digital PCR (dPCR).

Remodeling qPCR as a Tool for Molecular Diagnostics

On-Demand
The polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) is firmly established as the method of choice for the detection of microbial agents in the areas of clinical, veterinary and agricultural diagnostics and food safety. The current pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of local, fast and specific testing for SARS-CoV-2. It should also act as a wake-up call for the threat posed by infectious diseases spreading because of climate change, increasing antibiotic resistance and the hazard of zoonotic transfer caused by human encroachment of animal habitats. We are working on new tests, protocol and reagents to achieve faster molecular diagnostic testing both for both laboratory based and POC applications. Our target of delivering a diagnostic test result within five minutes of sampling has the potential to lead to a paradigm shift in our approach to detecting and classifying microbial pathogens in preparation for the inevitable next pandemic

Precision qPCR and dPCR in the Discovery and Development of Cell and Gene Therapies

On-Demand
As a cornerstone of genetic analysis in biological research, quantitative PCR (qPCR) and digital PCR (dPCR) are the most sensitive molecular methods to analyze nucleic acids and play a key role in the development of cell and gene therapies (CGT).

These tools are widely used during CGT development for example in biodistribution, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the investigational lead molecule. But many samples, including tissues rich in nucleases, lipids and other inhibiting substances and target molecules that are short or contain modified bases, can be challenging to work with. For these types of samples, assay design using advanced strategies, concentration standards, spike-in controls and validated normalization is key for reliable analyses.

In this webinar, Dr. Kubista will present strategies for implementing reliable qPCR and dPCR analysis in CGT development while highlighting best practices for adhering to MIQE and dMIQE guidelines and the recently released ISO standard, ISO 20395:2019.

Enzymes for Advancing Point-of-Care Diagnostics

On-Demand
Point-of-care testing is the future of diagnostic solutions. The main reason for this is point-of-care testing is robust, easy to use and provides immediate results and thus allows treatment decisions to be made more quickly. As an additional benefit, point-of-care diagnostic testing brings value to patients and healthcare systems.

We are here to help progress point-of-care diagnostics with our glycerol-free enzymes. Lyo-ready enzymes are as efficient and as high in performance as traditional formats of enzymes and this new formulation is suitable for use in microfluidics instruments.
