  • Powering pharma’s commercial teams with market access insights
    Powering pharma’s commercial teams with market access insights Paul Tunnah, Leilani Latimer and John Stahl Recorded: Jun 12 2017 63 mins
    Market access is influencing drug development and commercial launch strategy more than ever before, with 85% of prescription drugs in the United States reimbursed through managed care plans. Biopharma companies must take into account a multitude of factors when considering physician prescribing behaviors, and need a more integrated "pull-through" strategy across their teams, from managed markets, to marketing, to field sales. Just as an engine needs a steady supply of fuel to run efficiently, prescriber-facing teams – the commercial engine of life sciences companies – need market access data and insights to accelerate brand success. Today, the challenge is optimizing this fuel supply, as market access and commercial teams often operate in a siloed way with regards to data, market changes and insights.
    Join a vibrant conversation with industry leaders to discuss how the industry is changing and adapting to operationalize market access pull-through for improved commercial success.

  • Basic Principles of Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) Method Development
    Basic Principles of Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) Method Development Emanuela Gionfriddo, Ph.D.; Research Associate under Prof. Janusz Pawliszyn, University of Waterloo (ON, Canada) Recorded: May 31 2017 74 mins
    For the past two decades, Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) has represented a convenient alternative to conventional sample prep procedures. SPME allows the simultaneous extraction and enrichment of analytes of interest from a given matrix in a single step while avoiding, or drastically minimizing, the use of organic solvents and time-consuming cleanup procedures.
    Like any other analytical method, the various parameters governing the SPME process need to be carefully optimized in order to achieve robustness and sensitivity. However, certain aspects of SPME method development are often overlooked by many users, leading to unsatisfactory performance of the technique.
    This webinar will shed light into several aspects of SPME method development. The presentation will include a theoretical explanation of SPME fundamentals and practical suggestions to overcome common errors and bias encountered when using SPME.
    The webinar is divided in three main sections: 1) optimization of extraction conditions 2) matrix modifications 3) optimization of desorption conditions for gas and liquid chromatography. Each section is divided in various subsections dedicated to each parameter affecting the performance of the SPME technique. The webinar attendees will be guided through comprehensive understanding of the technology and the critical parameters that influence the extraction process with practical examples from already existing methods.

  • The benefits of gigahertz mode spacing for frequency comb applications
    The benefits of gigahertz mode spacing for frequency comb applications Dr Albrecht Bartels, managing director of Laser Quantum Recorded: May 30 2017 61 mins
    After the first demonstration of an optical frequency comb based on a mode-locked laser in 1999, Ti:sapphire lasers with repetition rates around 1 GHz were the sources of choice for scientists around the world. Their key feature was a mode spacing 10 times higher than that of comparable 100 MHz sources (simplifying mode identification) and the ability to generate a fully coherent super-continuum with 100 times more power per mode either directly from the cavity or using an external microstructured fibre (enhancing signal-to-noise ratio). The world’s first optical atomic clock was built in 2001 using a 1 GHz Ti:sapphire laser and subsequently it has been shown that these lasers indeed support an accuracy at the 10–20 level with a 1 s stability at the 10–17 level and optical linewidths at the millihertz level, i.e. ideal candidate clockworks for a new generation of optical atomic clocks. The Ti:sapphire technology has even been taken out to as far as 10 GHz, a regime where individual modes with powers in excess of 1 mW can be separated with a grating spectrometer and used individually for direct spectroscopy, spectrograph calibration or optical arbitrary waveform generation.

    To overcome some of the disadvantages of early Ti:sapphire lasers (requirement for frequent alignment, cleaning and use of AO modulators for control purposes) and to make the full advantages of GHz frequency comb technology accessible to the science community, Laser Quantum has developed the hermetically sealed and permanently aligned taccor 1 GHz Ti:sapphire laser featuring an integrated pump laser with direct pump power control. This intervention free laser forms the basis for the new taccor comb system featuring an f-2f interferometer and full comb-stabilization electronics.

    This webinar reviews the benefits of gigahertz Ti:sapphire frequency combs and focuses on the recent progress using Laser Quantum‘s hermetically sealed line of taccor lasers.
  • Recovering your data from a Ransomware Attack with DataCore
    Recovering your data from a Ransomware Attack with DataCore Sushant Rao, Senior Director, Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: May 25 2017 36 mins
    When you are hit by a ransomware attack, such as the recent WannaCrypt worm, you don’t have many options. You can pay the ransom, in the hopes that your data will be unencrypted. Or, you can wipe your systems clean, and then recover the data. But, backups are typically done on a daily basis. Depending on when the attack hit, the amount of data that you will lose could be in the hours. Fortunately, there is a better option.

    Continuous Data Protection (CDP) captures every write operation from an application and store it in a second location. This means that you can go back to the last data that was written before the ransomware attacked occurred. This ensure that data loss, if any, is minimal. Join this webinar to learn more about CDP and why it’s your safety net when ransomware hits.

    At DataCore, we can help your business address these challenges.

  • Advanced Cell Culture Technology for Generation of In Vivo-like Tissue Models
    Advanced Cell Culture Technology for Generation of In Vivo-like Tissue Models Stefan Przyborski, PhD - Professor of Cell Technology, Durham University UK Jun 30 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The benefits of three dimensional (3D) cell culture are widely appreciated. More cell-based technologies are now becoming available that enable researchers to preserve the native 3D structure of cells in vitro. These can be broadly divided into three areas: aggregate-based methods; hydrogels and extra-cellular matrices; and inert scaffold-based technologies. Each has strengths and weaknesses and there is no one technology that satisfies all applications. Tissues in the body are mostly composed of different cell types that are often highly organized in relation to each other. Often cells are arranged in distinct layers that enable signalling and cell-to-cell interactions. Alternatively in tumours, cancer cells form aggregates and tissue masses composed of different cell types. Recreation of these types of architecture will significantly evolve 3D cell culture to a new level where real tissue-like structures can be generated in vitro.

    This webinar will review the alternative approaches available to researchers and provide an overview of their capabilities and example applications. More sophisticated models are developing as 3D cell culture technology becomes established and accepted as a means of creating more physiologically relevant cell-based assays. Methods that are relatively straightforward to use and that recreate the organized structure of real tissues will become valuable research tools for use in discovery, validation studies, and modelling disease.

    Key areas covered:
    • 2D vs 3D cell culture debate
    • Review of alternative approaches and the development of new technologies
    • Challenges facing 3D culture methods, in terms of technologies available and methods used
    • Showcase applications where 3D technology makes a difference
    • Future perspective for 3D cell culture technology and further development

  • Catalyst Accelerator for Healthcare: Digital Transformation through FHIR & APIs
    Catalyst Accelerator for Healthcare: Digital Transformation through FHIR & APIs Matt Serna, Industry Marketing Manager, MuleSoft Jul 18 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The mandate for digital transformation in healthcare is clear. The question that IT leaders must answer, is not "if", but "how?"

    In particular, how should healthcare organizations delivering a digital experience for patients? How should they think about balancing existing HL7 point-to-point interfaces with emerging FHIR-based API approaches? How should they think about security? And how should they think about re-use to drive greater agility and increase time to market?

    Drawing on its work with 3 of the top-7 US hospitals, MuleSoft has developed Catalyst Accelerator for Healthcare, a set of API designs and supporting reference implementations, that codify integration best practices.

    Join this webinar to:

    - See a demo of the Catalyst Accelerator solution in action, powering web and mobile channels
    - Understand how an API-led connectivity approach can increase speed and agility by driving re-use of API assets

  • Modernizing Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing: From Batch to Continuous Production
    Modernizing Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing: From Batch to Continuous Production Robert Dream Jul 19 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The importance and value of continuous bioprocessing, both upstream and downstream has economic and sustainability advantages and due to the modular nature of continuous bioprocesses means that industry is able to adapt more rapidly to changing market demands. Continuous biopharmaceutical manufacturing in the context of other industries that have already successfully adopted continuous processing. Factor other than scientific ones, are the barriers to change from batch to continuous production. an excellent example of the manufacturing strategies of the steel industry in the 20th century, when this industrial sector incrementally switched from batch to continuous operations. biopharmaceutical industry has reached a stage that requires a change in the production paradigm. For a certain class of biopharmaceutical products upstream continuous manufacturing has always been applied: for example, unstable proteins that rapidly degrade in the culture broth. In order to obtain a high quality product, the residence time in the reactor must be minimized. This can only be achieved with continuous cultivation and preferably with perfusion reactors. a brief overview on the types of cell retention devices currently used in biopharmaceutical industry.
    Furthermore, this is a universal production platform that can be extended to other classes of products, such as antibodies, which are relatively stable molecules. continuous manufacturing is as productive and with a much smaller footprint of the manufacturing plant, avoiding multiple non-value added unit operations. In essence, the investment for a continuous plant is much smaller compared to a batch-operated one.

  • 3D Nephrotoxicity applications in a cell based model
    3D Nephrotoxicity applications in a cell based model Dr. Ed Kelly Jul 25 2017 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The kidney proximal tubule is the primary site of drug-induced nephrotoxicity. I will describe the development of a 3-dimensional flow-directed proximal tubule microphysiological system (MPS). The kidney MPS recapitulates the synthetic, metabolic and transport activities of kidney proximal tubule cells. This MPS is as an ideal platform for ex vivo modeling of nephrotoxicity. Towards this goal, we have evaluated nephrotoxicity in response to challenge with multiple toxicants, including the heavy metal pollutant cadmium, antisense oligonucleotides, the antibiotic polymyxin B and the Chinese herbal product aristolochic acid. We believe that MPS technologies will have major impacts on predictive toxicity testing and human risk assessment. Animal and in vitro systems do not always faithfully recapitulate drug and xenobiotic responses in the clinic or occupational/environmental exposures, respectively. MPS technologies will refine safety assessment and reduce our need for surrogate animal testing. An ultimate goal is to create integrated human MPS organ systems that could replace animal models.
  • Nortis’ microfluidic organ-on-chip technology
    Nortis’ microfluidic organ-on-chip technology Dr. Henning Mann Jul 25 2017 4:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    Nortis has developed a technology that is used to recapitulate functional units of human organs in microfluidic devices (chips). Such organ models include vasculature, kidney, and liver models for toxicology studies, blood-brain barrier models for drug transport studies, and vascularized tumor microenvironment models for drug efficacy studies. These models exhibit in-vivo like barrier function, transporter polarity, and enzymatic activity. Common architecture to these and other tissue models in the Nortis system is a 5 mm long, 0.125-mm diameter lumen lined with endothelial or epithelial cells that is completely surrounded by a 3D extracellular matrix, usually collagen I, and is continuously perfused with nutrient medium. Co-culture of cells can be compartmentalized by seeding cells into the extracellular matrix prior to polymerization, thus representing tissue parenchyma, and cells seeded into the tubular void to form endothelial microvessels or epithelial tubules traversing the pseudo parenchyma. By applying growth factor gradients, endothelial microvessels can be coaxed into sprouting vascular networks that interact with cells embedded in the extracellular matrix, thus building vascularized microenvironments.
