Fast, Gentle and Easy Single Cell Isolation

Single cell sorting and isolation has traditionally been a bottleneck in the workflows for single cell cloning, single cell genomics, rare cell isolation, synthetic biology and other applications. Existing techniques such as fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) often leads to compromised cell viability and poor outgrowth, contamination, clogging, in addition to the operational complexity and high maintenance requirement, while manual limiting dilution is inefficient, unreliable and highly labor-intensive. As such, there has been an urgent need for fast and easy single cell dispensing technology that is at the same time gentle to the cells and can preserve their viability and integrity. There is also a need for quick sorting of tens of thousands of cells for single cell genomics, such as sample prep for 10x Genomics workflow.

In this presentation, the speaker will discuss an innovative technology to address these needs. It combines the benefits of three key technologies: microfluidics, flow cytometry and liquid dispensing. The unique combination of these techniques enables users to accomplish single cell sorting and dispensing in one step, providing fast, easy and gentle sorting and isolation of single cells. This will simplify and empower a number of single cell applications, including cell line development, single cell genomics and proteomics, cell line engineering and CRISPR, monoclonal antibody development, synthetic biology, and rare cell isolation such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and circulating fetal cells.

Register for this webinar to discover how this technology can help optimize a single cell workflow and deliver desired results.

Webinar: New for NanoDrop: 21 CFR Part 11 & Distinguishing DNA from RNA

This year, the NanoDrop One spectrophotometer has received two major updates – features that allow 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and the ability to distinguish DNA from RNA.

Join us while we explore how electronic signatures, audit trails, and user account access have been incorporated into the NanoDrop One platform using the Thermo Scientific Security Suite software. You’ll also learn how the Thermo Scientific Acclaro Sample Intelligence Technology algorithms have been updated to identify RNA contamination in DNA and DNA contamination in RNA.

Key learning objectives

  • Compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 doesn't have to be difficult
  • How to integrate your NanoDrop One into software that allows for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
  • How to distinguish between DNA and RNA using UV/Vis spectroscopy

Who should attend?

  • Molecular biologists working with nucleic acids and proteins in their research
  • Researchers who perform qPCR tests
  • Biopharmaceutical research and quality control labs

Certificate of attendance

All webinar participants can request a certificate of attendance, and a learning outcomes summary document for continuing education purposes.

OpenSPR Nicoya - which binding technique is optimal for your research?

About the Event

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted research worldwide, causing many scientists to put their projects on hold. As labs and facilities begin to slowly open up again, many of us are asking where to go from here. Whether it be planning your next big breakthrough or that side project you've had in the back of your mind, it's important to have the right tools to get the data you need. And with so many innovations in biomolecular technology, it's common to find yourself unsure of which techniques are best suited for your research.

To help you navigate the many biomolecular interaction techniques available as a researcher, Nicoya has put together this webinar to dive into which technique best suits the direction of your projects. Nicoya will be discussing the importance of binding interaction data and providing an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of multiple techniques. If you have ever done co-immunoprecipitation or western blots, or considered working with ITC, MST, BLI, or SPR, this is a perfect opportunity to understand which technique is the best fit for your projects.

You'll Learn How to

  • Why reviewers are looking for binding data in publications
  • What technique best suits your research
  • An overview of Co-IPs, MST, ITC, BLI and SPR
  • Newest advancements in biomolecular characterization methods

Nicoya will be showcasing the strengths of common binding techniques and helping you understand which technique you need for your next publication. It is the perfect opportunity to learn about new technologies and how to make the most out of your resources that are available to you!
