Cancer research diagnostic services in pathology laboratories worldwide have been negatively impacted by a lack of fresh-frozen tissue samples, the degradation of DNA and RNA in archival tissue, and tumor heterogeneity. To achieve accurate and reproducible gene expression and amplification results using archival material, a more precise test that adapts to current clinical research workflows is needed.
Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science, has developed a comprehensive portfolio of Invitrogen immunoassays based on Luminex xMAP (multianalyte profiling) technology, a high-throughput solution enabling simultaneous detection and quantitation of multiple proteins.
Presented as part of the Protein and Cell Analysis Education Series Virtual Event, this webinar will discuss the benefits of multiplexing and Luminex technologies, as well as the use of QuantiGene Plex Assays to accurately measure RNA from archival tumor sections. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with the experts.
The speaker for this event will be Dr. Godfrey Grech, head of the Laboratory of Molecular Pathology at the University of Malta.
Grech is an associate professor at the University of Malta and currently responsible for the Molecular Pathology Research Laboratory and Director of Biotech Innovations, a spin-off company. The main research topic aims to identify biomarkers to classify breast cancer patients into a specific therapeutic group that shall benefit from activation of phosphatases as a main therapeutic option.
LabRoots will host the webinar on November 7, 2017, beginning at 8 a.m. PST. To learn more about this event, discover the continuing education credits that will be offered, or to register for free, click here.
