In this webinar, which LabRoots will host September 11, participants will learn about differences in reporter gene assays options, and their impact on the cost, quality and ease of execution of research and development.

YORBA LINDA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 16, 2018

With increasing safety requirements, and time and financial pressure, the development of new drugs, and the execution of basic research projects, are presenting multiple challenges. To be successful in such a competitive environment, it is more important than ever to select the right approach to execute the different aspects of the multiple tasks needed to develop a new drug or to execute fundamental research.

In this webinar, which is sponsored by PerkinElmer, attendees will learn about different options for cell viability testing, the impact of such differences on the execution of R&D work, and about the possibility to run such assays on relevant cellular models.

In this Webinar, examples will be presented where different technologies have been compared to analyze the potency of transcription inhibitors, and to measure the cytotoxic potential of test compounds in relevant cellular models, using various assay and reader platforms. The relative advantages of each method will be discussed, and the key points important for the project efficiency and cost will be highlighted.

The speakers for this event will be Dr. Vincent Dupriez, Global Product Leader and European Scientific Application Leader at PerkinElmer in Brussels, Belgium; Dr. Jeanine Hinterneder, Senior Application Scientist at PerkinElmer in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, USA; and Maria Kuzikov, a Research Associate at the Fraunhofer IME Screening Port in Hamburg, Germany.

Dupriez will first make a general introduction, and will then present data generated by collaborators, about improving dual reporter gene assays quality and efficiency: use of twinlite for studying transcriptional regulation by viral inhibitor proteins, as well as selecting the best option for PBMC luminescent cell viability assays.

Kuzikov will present the data generated at the Fraunhofer IME ScreeningPort about best practices and efficient methods, space and cost-saving, to assess cell viability using the ATPlite reagent and the VICTOR Nivo™ Multimode Plate Reader and will discuss the advantages of using this platform.

Hinterneder will speak about "Improving the predictability of cytotoxicity tests by moving to 3D cell culture models." She will illustrate the different 3D cell culture options to grow spheroids and the methods developed to analyze the viability of such spheroids.

LabRoots will host the webinar Tuesday, September 11, 2018, beginning at 10 a.m. CET. To learn more about this event, the speakers, continuing education credits offered, or to simply register for free, click here.
