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!

Be Gentle With Your Cells - Optimizing Your Cell Line Development Workflows

In this webinar we will discuss and compare several single cell isolation techniques including manual limiting dilution, flow cytometry and Namocell's unique single cell dispenser.

The results of single cell cloning using all three techniques with several different cell lines will be shared.

We will demonstrate the advantages of using an automated gentle single cell isolation instrument can improve overall cloning workflows.

Protein Sample Evaluation using the NanoDrop™ One UV Vis Spectrophotometer

On September 18th, 2018 at 4pm (EDT)

you have the opportunity to join the online event

"Protein Sample Evaluation using the NanoDrop™ One UV Vis Spectrophotometer"


Voula Kodoyianni, PhD, MS
Product Marketing Manager | UV-Vis and Fluorescence Instruments | Thermo Fisher Scientific

We know from VOC that 83% of our customers quantify proteins with a spectrophotometer at least once per week. There is a lot of helpful information in this webinar for scientists who work with proteins. Concepts covered and clarified are:

  • Protein mass extinction coefficients vs molar extinction coefficients
  • Blank vs background correction
  • How to use “sample type options”
  • “Good” and “bad” buffers for protein A280
  • How to customize their instrument using the Protein Editor and Dye Editor
  • How the Proteins and Labels application quantifies both the carrier protein and the FLR label
  • and more...

If you are interested, please register online.
