Immune Surveillance in SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Development

The ability to characterize the target of cell-mediated immune response is crucial during vaccine development. In studying the characterization of SARS-CoV-2 infection pathogenesis in humans, a research team identified neutralizing antibodies that provided context for vaccine antigen design. Discover how the ZE5 Cell Analyzer was used to detect activation-induced markers, measure intracellular cytokines, and identify spike protein–specific antibodies in a rapid, high-throughput manner.

Purification of Untagged Proteins Made Attainable for Any Researcher

High purity protein is a common requirement for biochemical and structural studies. A common approach is to recombinantly express an affinity-tagged version of the protein of interest. However, this is not always a viable option. Here we showcase how the NGC Chromatography System and prepacked chromatography columns can be utilized to develop purification workflows for untagged proteins.

How FACS, Genetic Screens, and the HAP1 Cell Line Uncover the Biological Mechanisms of Cancer

Genetic screens are powerful tools for finding genes associated with a particular phenotype. They play an especially important role in cancer research and are leveraged to identify predictive biomarkers that can be used to improve treatment efficacy or trace the progression of genetic alterations that ultimately lead to disease. The HAP1 cancer cell line model and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) bring efficiency to the development of genetic screens that is making them a force to be reckoned with.

Automate Your Antibody Purification Workflow at Preparative and Analytical Scale

Presented by: Katie Schaefer, PhD, Global Product Manager, Bio-Rad
Peter Winship, PhD, Technical Product Manager, Teledyne Cetac Technologies

View on demand

Purification is a multistep process toward confirmation of a target protein’s purity. In this webinar you will learn how to automate your protein purification workflow by following the creation of a hypothetical monoclonal antibody (mAb). Dr. Schaefer and Dr. Winship expertly demonstrate how the NGC Chromatography System and the AEX-500 series Autosampler work together to maximize screening capability as well as rapidly achieve therapeutic development objectives.
