  • Scale & Strategy: Essential tools for transforming the commercial model Scale & Strategy: Essential tools for transforming the commercial model Dominic Tyer Recorded: Nov 9 2016 42 mins
    Most life sciences companies know they need to move their multichannel marketing forward, but that requires managing a greater volume of tactics that need to be developed, approved, implemented, and measured.

    And of course, those tactics must reflect how their target audiences engage in content – such as the 65% of healthcare professionals who say they prefer clinical summaries.

    To truly transform the commercial model, companies must have a strategic blueprint that combines business objectives with brand goals to determine the appropriate resource levels and channel attribution.

    On November 9 Aptus Health, in association with PMGroup, will explore three essential ingredients for transforming the commercial model and driving success:

    • Learn how to deploy multichannel marketing at scale through integrated campaigns that reach millions of HCPs across specialties, languages, and markets

  • New Guava and Muse Algae Kits for Flow Cytometry New Guava and Muse Algae Kits for Flow Cytometry Katherine Gillis- Sr. Research Scientist at MilliporeSigma Recorded: Nov 2 2016 39 mins
    In research areas such as academic, biofuel, food and pharmaceutical industries the determination of algal viability, lipid content, and cell concentration is important in the selection, monitoring, and maintenance of algal cultures. Flow cytometry has been shown to be an ideal method to assess health and lipid content of cultures but has been challenging to adopt due to high complexity and cost of traditional technologies. In this webinar, we present novel simplified methods for algal characterization using microcapillary cytometry on either a simple touch screen based cytometer, the Muse® Cell Analyzer, or a higher throughput cytometric platform, the compact Guava® easyCyte platforms. The MilliporeSigma algae kits utilize simple mix and read protocols, dedicated software modules, and provide quick results for the of count and viability measurements or relative lipid content on algae strains. The optimized and dedicated algae kits allow for high precision and comparable results to predicate methods. Data from applications to multiple common algal strains such as Chlorella vulgaris and Chlamydomonas reinhardti under different culture conditions will be presented. Availability of dedicated kits for algae research on simple and easy to use cytometric platforms will empower and enable algae researchers to rapidly select optimal culture conditions and strains for downstream experiments.

  • Driving adoption of Commercial Analytic solutions Driving adoption of Commercial Analytic solutions Dominic Tyer Recorded: Oct 25 2016 50 mins
    Commercial analytic solutions are becoming more and more common within the Pharma industry. Companies are spending millions implementing tools which are aimed at helping users identify opportunities to improve the bottom line, segment customers, track multichannel campaign success and meet a myriad of other objectives. Despite all the 'perceived' value these tools can add, they remain largely unused. Excuses for the lack of adoption are varied but can generally be classified into one of three areas - they are either too complex, it isn't convenient to use or it just doesn't deliver on the value promised. These issues are compounded by the fact that they are generally only identified when the solution has been deployed and expected to be used. By ensuring that these issues are addressed at all stages during the development and not just when adoption targets are not being met, commercial analytic solutions can be exploited to attain the anticipated value and more.
