THE GENOMICS ENTHUSIAST
Helping Labs Test for COVID-19 | The IRR was established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to distributes COVID-19 diagnostic supplies to registered state and local public health laboratories in the US.
High-throughput, reliable technologies for PGT-A | The field of genetics continues to grow at an unforeseen pace. Sequencing instrument manufacturers are rising to the challenge by offering larger and larger sequencing platforms capable of sequencing the entire human genome in just a few days with the promise of achieving the $1,000 genome. The growth of this market doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon.
AAV Purity Analysis - Modernized in a New Decade | In this tools and technologies presentation, we will discuss how to apply modern microfluidics technologies on AAV purity analysis.
Ensuring the Accuracy of your SARS-CoV-2 Testing Results | Accuracy of SARS-CoV-2 testing is critical when determining if someone is infected and needs to be quarantined and/or treated for a coronavirus infection. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays is the tool of choice for determining if someone has an active SARS-CoV-2 infection.
How to Design PCR Primers for Multiplex Assays | Good primer design is essential for successful, specific PCR amplification with high yield. For PCR primers to efficiently amplify DNA template in a PCR they should be carefully designed so the optimal conditions for them to amplify their target are as equivalently matched as possible.
Improve the Efficiency of Your Cannabis Lab with Automation | Don’t miss our on-demand webinar, Improve the Efficiency of Your Cannabis Lab with Automation. In this webinar you will learn how to automate the Cannabis potency analysis, pesticide analysis, mycotoxin and microbial testing sample prep methods used in the cannabis and hemp industry.
Advancing Agricultural Genomics with Low-Cost NGS Genotyping | Charles Johnson, founder of the Texas A&M AgriLife Genomics and Bioinformatics Service, will address the current status and future directions for massively high-throughput genomics for plant and animal breeding and research.
The laboratory workforce is shrinking making it more difficult to fill open positions. This lack of expertise will make automation a critical component of lab management in the future.
Here I am, a woman undergoing IVF to try and have the child that my partner and I so desperately want to have, and I find out that the majority of my embryos from each IVF cycle do not have the correct number of chromosomes!
Watch Our On-Demand Webinar | This is a challenging time for laboratories working on the front lines of COVID-19 pandemic. In this webinar, we will describe how PerkinElmer is helping the community address this urgent public health concern.
