  • Pediatric Cancer and IHC Pediatric Cancer and IHC Jeff Gordon, Director of OEM Sales, Cell Marque Corporation Sep 28 2016 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Childhood cancer and pediatric cancer are general terms used to describe a wide range of neoplasms found in children and teenagers. Occurring in approximately 1 in 300 people under the age of 20, compared to 1 in 6 adults, pediatric cancers are more rare than adult cancers. Because less is known about pediatric cancers, diagnosis can be quite challenging for pathologists.

    This presentation covers the basic science, as well as facts and statistics about pediatric cancer. We will discuss how the utility of immunohistochemical testing along with the application of novel antibodies can contribute to accurate diagnosis and survival rates of pediatric cancer patients.
  • How to Avoid the Citrix Blame Game How to Avoid the Citrix Blame Game Peter Connolly, Systems Engineer at ExtraHop Sep 29 2016 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    When applications and desktops are delivered over Citrix, the Citrix administration team becomes the front-line for responding to complaints about slow performance. But more than 60 percent of the time, the root cause of the problem lies outside of the Citrix environment.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how wire data analytics can enable Citrix administrators to not only see end-user experience for ICA sessions, but also dig into application and infrastructure performance to uncover the real reason for slowdowns.
  • SOC Operations: Orchestrating for Optimization SOC Operations: Orchestrating for Optimization Victor Lee, CISSP, Intel Security; Mat Gangwer, Rook Security; Brandon Dunlap, Brightfly Sep 29 2016 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    As a wise person once said, a man with one watch knows what time it is, a man with two isn't so sure. Despite the myriad of tools at our disposal in the SOC, how do you accurately identify and triage security Events, escalate those that need it to the status of Incident, and mange them through remediation or response effectively? Join Intel and (ISC)2 on September 29, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern as we bring a panel of SOC operational experts to discuss strategies and opportunities to orchestrate SOC operations for peak performance.

  • Complete Environments For The Long-Term Feeder-Free Culture & Expansion Of hPSCs Complete Environments For The Long-Term Feeder-Free Culture & Expansion Of hPSCs Dr. Himabindu Nandivada Oct 5 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) are traditionally cultured in co-culture with mouse embryonic fibroblast cells (MEFs). This introduces variability into the culture, increases the risk of contamination and therefore hinders the applicability of hPSCs in cell therapy and regenerative medicine.

    This webinar will introduce two xeno-free hPSC culture products- Corning PureCoat rLaminin-521 cultureware and Corning NutriStem XF medium. Corning PureCoat rLaminin-521 cultureware are ready-to-use, pre-coated rLaminin-521 vessels available in multiple scalable formats. Corning NutriStem hPSC XF medium is a serum-free, xeno-free hPSC culture medium. We will demonstrate long term feeder-free culture and characterization of hPSCs in three different surface-medium combinations

    1.Corning Matrigel matrix with Corning NutriStem hPSC XF medium
    2.Corning rLaminin-521 (human) with Corning NutriStem hPSC XF medium
    3.Corning PureCoat rLaminin-521 cultureware with Corning NutriStem hPSC XF medium
  • Multispectral Imaging Flow Cytometry: Illuminating T cell – APC Interactions Multispectral Imaging Flow Cytometry: Illuminating T cell – APC Interactions Haley R. Pugsley, Ph.D, Senior Scientist at MilliporeSigma Oct 5 2016 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Interaction between antigen-specific T cells and antigen presenting cells (APC) cognate ligand involve reorganization of the cytoskeleton and recruitment of adhesive and signaling molecules to the site of intercellular contact. Sustained adhesion of T cells to APCs and formation of the immunological synapse after T cell receptor stimulation are required for the antigen-specific response. One way to measure an immunological synapse is by fluorescently labeling the molecules that have been recruited to the synapse and imaging by fluorescence microscopy. However, immunological synapses are rare and therefore difficult to analyze objectively and statistically by traditional microscopy methods. To overcome these problems, we employed the Amnis brand imaging flow cytometers to objectively collect imagery of large numbers of cells. We report the percentage of T cells involved in an organized immunological synapse, the recruitment of adhesion molecule LFA-1 and signaling molecule Lck to the synaptic complex and subsequent translocation of NFkB from the cytoplasm to the nucleus in the T cell. In this study, Raji B cells loaded with Staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB) were incubated with human T cells to create T cell-APC conjugates. Cells were stained in various combinations for CD3, CD19, Actin, LFA-1, Lck and NFkB. Results from the FlowSight and the ImageStream imaging flow cytometers are compared. Using the FlowSight imaging flow cytometer we demonstrate image-based parameters that were used to assess the frequency of conjugates with an organized immunological synapse in an objective and statistically significant manner. Employing the ImageStream imaging flow cytometer we further evaluate the specific location of the adhesion and signaling molecules LFA-1 and Lck within the immunological synapse complex in T cells and measure the nuclear localization of NFkB in the T cell.
  • A simple blood test for better prostate cancer detection A simple blood test for better prostate cancer detection Dr. Vernon Mustoe Oct 5 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. Fortunately, it can be detected early by monitoring PSA levels. However, PSA tests have limited specificity for cancer, resulting in numerous unnecessary biopsies each year, which creates the need for a more precise test to help with prostate cancer detection. In this webinar, Dr. Vernon Mustoe will discuss how a simple blood test can help provide more accurate information on what an elevated PSA level might mean and the probability of finding prostate cancer on biopsy.

    Dr. Vernon Mustoe is one of Beckman Coulter’s medical affairs managers, supporting customers with advanced clinical and technical issues. Having obtained his undergraduate and graduate degrees from New York University, he spent over 23 years in the clinical laboratory. Most recently, he was the Director of Clinical Chemistry and Assistant Director of Laboratory Services at Sisters of Charity Medical Center in Staten Island, N.Y. He has also taught Clinical Pathology at the Bayley Seton Physician Assistant School, as well as Clinical and Anatomic Pathology at the College of Staten Island Campus of the City University of New York.

  • Congrats on Passing Your HIPAA Risk Assessment - Now Prepare to Get Breached! Congrats on Passing Your HIPAA Risk Assessment - Now Prepare to Get Breached! Marion Jenkins, Healthcare Technology Partners Oct 12 2016 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The HIPAA Security Risk Assessment is well intentioned but virtually useless in terms of actually protecting a Covered Entity against a breach. In fact, the majority of the ~1650 Covered Entities on Health and Human Services' HIPAA “Wall of Shame” probably completed their annual SRA, and were likely even “compliant” in terms of the remediation effort. Yet, they suffered breaches that required them to report to HHS, as well as the local news media.

    Join us on October 12th at 3 PM EST for "You Just Completed HIPAA Security Risk Assessment – Now Prepare to Be Breached". Guest speaker, and leading healthcare IT expert, Marion Jenkins, will discuss:

    - The top five threats and the security practices you can adopt to minimize them
    - How to extend the HIPAA Security specifications into actionable items that will safeguard your practice
