Yorba Linda, Ca (PRWEB) October 10, 2016
Cell Signaling Technology (CST) has developed the CellSimple™ Cell Analyzer, which enables quick and easy research assays, including functional cell-based assays, cell-model phenotyping, and both singular and multiplex protein quantification. The CellSimple™ Cell Analyzer will be the focus of their newest webinar, titled CellSimple™ Cell Analyzer: Delivering Convenience, Versatility and Efficiency for Application Workflows.
The instrument combines a 488 nm laser with dual photomultiplier tubes, and Coulter-based cell measurements to provide fluorometric readouts and sample counts, while on-board software delivers easy-to-run application protocols and data analysis. The bench top detection system is small enough to be placed on the bench or in the hood. A unique aspect of the instrument is that it relies on disposable cassettes for sample handling, which alleviates the need for start-up/shut-down instrument maintenance.
Case studies will be presented throughout the webinar; each focusing on some aspect of cell health/apoptosis, cellular phenotyping, analysis of eGFP expressing populations, and protein quantification, using both cell-based and multiplexed bead-based assay methods. These studies include both customer and CST generated data, and will demonstrate how pairing the CellSimple Cell Analyzer with highly-validated complementary reagents, delivers fast assays and fast answers.
CST, which will be sponsoring this webinar, has commissioned one of its field application scientists, Jonah Riddell, Ph. D., to be the speaker of this webinar.
Riddell received his doctorate of microbiology and immunology from the University of Buffalo, during which time he identified and characterized a novel prostate cancer antigen that was found to play multiple roles in promoting prostate cancer; this target is currently being investigated in clinical trials. His post-doctoral work was completed at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute/Boston Children’s Hospital. Here, he succeeded in reprogramming differentiated murine blood cells into hematopoietic stem cells. Hopefully, this work can be pushed to the clinic and help patients undergoing bone marrow transplants. He continues his goals of aiding researchers, since coming to CST, by helping researchers select the best tools for their research needs.
LabRoots will host the free webinar November 10, 2016, at 9 a.m. PT, 12 p.m. ET. To get full event details, information on continuing education credits and to register, click here.
