  • Immuno-PET with Nanobodies
    Immuno-PET with Nanobodies Dr Hidde Ploegh, Senior Investigator, Boston Children’s Hospital Recorded: Jun 22 2017 59 mins
    The ability to visualize immune responses non-invasively would have tremendous value for basic immunology. In pre-clinical models it would be possible to track events such as the host response to infections, to look at inflammation more generally, and to follow the course of interventions such as checkpoint blocking antibodies in the treatment of tumours.

    PET imaging agents require a workflow compatible with the half-life of commonly used isotopes, and must take into account the pharmacokinetic properties of these agents. The specificity of what is being imaged requires the design of compounds that can distinguish between differences in metabolic activity (18F-fluorodeoxyglucose) or that serve as ligands for specific receptors, such as antibodies that recognize surface structures. We have used nanobodies, the smallest antibody-derived fragments that retain antigen-binding capacity. These fragments are ~15 kDa in size, are rapidly cleared from the circulation and are easily modified by chemo-enzymatic means for the installation of metal chelators or click handles to enable radiolabelling. Using nanobodies, we have been able to image various populations of immune cells, and based on longitudinal immuno-PET observations we have been able to make predictions of success and failure in immunotherapy of the B16 mouse melanoma model. The use of 89Zr-labelled nanobodies for immuno-PET will be a powerful adjunct to more conventional, invasive models, and will provide resolution superior to fluorescence- and luminescence-based models.
  • Powering the Industrial Internet of Things

  • Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability
    Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability Ram D. Sriram, Chief of the Software and Systems Division, IT Lab at National Institute of Standards and Technology Recorded: Jun 21 2017 60 mins
    In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.

    The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.

    This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.

    A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.

    Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.

    Amplified Detection of Proteins and their Interactions using Duolink PLA Manpreet Mutneja, Ph.D, MBA Sr. Product Manager, Molecular Platforms Life Science Research, MilliporeSigma Recorded: Jun 15 2017 44 mins
    Understanding the movements, modifications and interactions of proteins within a cell is key to unraveling the fundamental tenets of biology. However, the low-level expression of many proteins, combined with the transient nature of their interactions and movements, makes analyzing and understanding these processes quite difficult. Duolink® PLA, which is based on the principles of the proximity ligation assay (PLA), offers a solution to overcome these hurdles and to study the actions of endogenous proteins within cells and tissues. Combining the specificity of antibodies with the sensitivity afforded by rolling circle amplification, Duolink® PLA allows you to detect, visualize, and quantitate proteins and their interactions (even single events) where they happen within cells or tissue, all without overexpression or genetic manipulation. This seminar will cover the basic assay principle and advantages of the Duolink® PLA technology, and discuss recent applications and developments of the technology that make it an excellent tool to understand the fundamental mechanisms of biology, as well as disease states. Applications of Duolink® PLA include the investigation of cellular responses to varying stimuli, receptor dimerization and signalling cascades, post-translational modifications, and regulation of protein expression. New developments include use in flow cytometry and multiplexed detection.

  • 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

  • Regret Minimisation
    Regret Minimisation Dominic Tyer Jul 11 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    When new products approach the market the level of demand for them is often exaggerated.

    However, in the real-world we know healthcare professionals may be less comfortable switching from a familiar product, even when clinical trial data suggests a newer product is superior. So what are we missing?

    On the 11th July Cello Health Insight, in association with PMGroup, will host a free webinar where we will explore whether ‘regret minimisation’ - an alternative approach that focusses on minimising potential losses - has the potential to offer us new ways to understand the customer behaviour.

    A head-to-head comparison of the top-rated products in HCI & SDS Alfons Michels - Senior Product Marketing Manager, Sushant Rao - Senior Director, Product Marketing Jul 12 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    When you are trying to consolidate, simplify and automate your IT infrastructure, both Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) and Software-Defined Storage (SDS) promise to deliver the results you expect. For this reason, analysts predict HCI and SDS to grow rapidly compared to legacy architectures.

    But, with all the vendors and products in the HCI and SDS areas, how do you pick the “right” ones to evaluate? Too often, you have to rely on one-sided information from the vendors themselves.

    Join us as we evaluate the top products in the HCI and SDS categories using analysis from an unbiased, independent organization. In this webinar, we will cover the:
    - Criteria to evaluate these products
    - Pros and cons of different vendors’ products
  • Developing Simplified Methods for Quantifying Analytes using  SPME
    Developing Simplified Methods for Quantifying Analytes using SPME Robert E. Shirey, M.S.; Principal R&D Scientist Jul 13 2017 1:30 pm UTC 90 mins
    Solid phase microexatraction or SPME is a green method for extraction of analytes out of a sample. Since SPME is a non-exhaustive extraction technique, some analysts believe that SPME is not quantifiable. This presentation will provide basic information for developing a method to extract and quantify analytes using SPME. Examples will be given on the extraction and quantification of analytes out of various matrices, and SPME will be compared to other extraction techniques such as QuEChERS and SPE. In this webinar, we will discuss some new SPME technologies such as SPME-OC (over-coated) fibers and BioSPME that help to isolate and quantify analytes from interfering compounds in the matrix. Guidelines will be provided for enhancement of precision using SPME.

  • 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.
