FREE LIVE WEBINAR 

Thursday, May 14, 2020 – 10:00am (Chicago)

Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) is a powerful analytical technique that can provide elemental and molecular information with high sensitivity from the sample surface to tens of microns into the sample. Additionally, TOF-SIMS can produce chemical images with high spatial resolution (<70 nm). This is achieved by utilizing a variety of ion beams to either analyze (Binq+, Au nq+, C60q+, Ga+), sputter (O2+, Cs+, Ar+, large gas cluster Ar), or mill (Ga+ FIB) the sample. The most recent advancement in TOF-SIMS is the capability of MS/MS (i.e. tandem MS) which enables confident molecular identification. The flexibility of TOF-SIMS makes it a valuable tool to investigate a wide range of materials. This webinar will introduce the fundamentals of TOF-SIMS, discuss ion beams and MS/MS, and show materials applications.

Brookhaven Instruments – Guide to Making Useful Measurements of Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs) with Dynamic Light Scattering

Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is a powerful technique that is amenable to measurement of biological samples, particularly proteins and biopolymers. One of the fastest growing classes of pharmaceutically active biologics are antibodies. These highly versatile proteins are used as the major functional element in immunoassays and other rapid diagnostics, in vaccine production, and as the primary component of a wide array of injectable protein drugs. In all these applications it is essential that antibodies remain intact, and monomeric. Failing to adhere to these strict and exacting standards compromises the processability, activity, and shelf stability of antibody-based products. When DLS is used to its full potential, aggregation of proteins can be detected and the size of monomeric protein can be determined to a very high degree of certainty. In order to demonstrate this principle, we compare aggregation studies conducted on pharmaceutical-grade monoclonal antibody (mAb), with results obtained for a common protein, serum albumin (BSA).

Webinar: Shows how the MQC+ Benchtop NMR analyser can replace Soxhlet analysis for measurement of FOG

Benchtop NMR

Measurement of FOG in wastewater is a crucial parameter in environmental monitoring performed by water suppliers’ laboratories and environmental authorities. One method involves passing a volume of water through a filter which collects both FOG and solid particulates; after drying the filter, the FOG is determined by Soxhlet analysis.*

However the Soxhlet method is a long and laborious process, requires skilled operators and the use of hazardous solvents which need to be disposed of. Furthermore, the method is not very accurate or sensitive, and the solvents that are used today are unlikely to extract all the FOG.

This webinar shows how the MQC+ Benchtop NMR analyser can replace Soxhlet analysis for measurement of FOG on a single filter sheet, thus enabling sample automation as well as higher throughput, accuracy and sensitivity.

*The Determination of Oil and Greases in Waste Water by Filtration, Solvent Extraction and Gravimetry, in Methods for the examination of waters and associated materials, 1987 (ISBN 011 752076 4)

Time: 10am

Date: Tuesday 28th April

Presenter

Dr Kevin Nott is the product manager and applications specialist for the MQC+ analyser. He completed his first and Master degrees in chemistry at the University of East Anglia (1991-1995) which included a research project at the Institute of Food Research. He then studied for his Doctorate at the University of Cambridge (1995-1999) for which he investigated NMR relaxometry and imaging (MRI) applications in the food industry. After working as a post-doctoral researcher, he joined Oxford Instruments in May 2005. Since then he has been primarily working on bench-top (also known as time domain) NMR applications for quality control and research in the food, agriculture, polymer, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, water and other industries.

The Three Most Critical Insights in Regenerative Medicine

ROKIT Healthcare INVIVO .jpgINSIGHT #1) Traumatic injuries, vascular abnormalities, cancer treatment and malfunctioning organs…traditionally, these involve loss of tissue or organ that could be restored only through surgical transfer from the patient and donor or through the use of synthetic materials. However, common challenges facing surgical care are that there is only so much tissue that can be removed from the same patient to reconstruct a damaged area. Also, the use of human or animal donor tissues have posed inherent risks of infection and graft failure.

 

 

ROKIT Healthcare INVIVO_1.jpg

 

INSIGHT 2) But perhaps one of healthcare’s most profound problems, especially in the face of a globally aging population, is the sheer shortage of organ donors and rejection in existing transplantation methods. In 2016 in the U.S., around 116,000 were on the waitlist for an organ transplant while less than 10% of that number made up the donors list. Similar figures (respective to population size) are reported from other developed countries as in the EU; in less developed countries, the numbers on the waiting list are grossly masked by the numbers of people who pass away without even making it to the waitlist.

It is true that over the years post-transplantation 5-year survival rates have significantly improved (73% today versus 63% in 1980s for the heart) thanks to advances in immunosuppressive drug development. However, patients subjected to chronic regimens face new risks. From the risks of developing non-adherance to risks of developing antibodies to the biologics, post-allogeneic transplant management has its own concerns that can decrease quality of life and increase healthcare costs.

INSIGHT 3) There has been a rapidly growing attention to 3D printing in biomedicine in the past 5 years, both as a tool for tissue engineering research but also for clinical applications taking advantage of the unique benefits of personalized, automated printing of cells and biomaterials. The movement of the 3D bioprinting community is toward one vision – to generate organs and tissues on demand according to patients’ needs, using patients’ own cells.

In just a little over a decade since it was introduced to medical application, 3D printing has demonstrated its ability to revolutionize the delivery of health care across the world. Beyond the use in surgical prototyping and planning, 3D printing is being applied in fabricating constructs (medical devices or implants) with required structural, mechanical, and biological complexity that conventional methods lack in reproducing for patients. A 3D-printed bioresorbable airway splint saved a newborn’s life in the U.S.; a patient suffering with a degenerative cervical spine received a 3D-printed spinal implant recapitulating the complex internal architecture; a production of skin grafts clinically proven to treat burns was automatized with a 3D printer in Spain.
