Identification of MRSA using 3-colour Crystal digital PCR
Tuesday, October 24, 2017
8 AM PDT   |   11 AM EDT   |   4 PM BST   |   5 PM CEST

button Stilla Technologies

Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major pathogen associated with complicating hospital and community medicine. Drug resistance increases the risk of complications and can challenge routine procedures such as surgery. As different species, such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, can also carry resistance, this can further increase the challenge of diagnosis using culture and/or molecular methods.

This webcast describes a digital PCR approach that uses a three colour detection platform (Naica Crystal Digital PCR System, Stilla Technologies) to count the number of genes that confer resistance and compare this with the number of genes from S. aureus and S. epidermidis within a sample. This method may be useful to determine which organism is carrying the resistance gene.

During this webcast you will:
  • Understand 3-colour multiplexing digital PCR
  • Understand The Naica System Workflow
  • Learn a new method to determine resistance gene and drug resistance
  • Given a practical study : identification of MRSA with the Naica System
  • Learn about digital PCR for infectious diseases applications

WEBINAR -- Characterizing the Performance of qPCR Instruments – Approaches for Assessment and Comparison
The breadth of instruments available for quantitative PCR (qPCR) has continued to grow in the past 5-10 years. With older platforms now being retired and an abundance of new technologies available to replace them, lab managers, technicians, and researchers will need to effectively compare and evaluate the performance of these platforms. While new features such as multiplexing, microfluidics, and integration with liquid handling automation have enabled higher throughput and lower operating costs, it has made it increasing complex to readily compare different types of instruments and their respective performance characteristics.
As the list of features and specifications grows, understanding some of the key metrics of instrument performance will become critical for evaluating platforms that will best meet the needs of a laboratory’s application focus and assay requirements. Unfortunately, instrument vendors have not consistently conformed to any particular standards for defining and assessing performance characteristics of qPCR instruments and rarely have the methods been adequately documented in the product literature.
In this webinar, we will define several key performance metrics of qPCR instruments such as dynamic range, Cq uniformity, sensitivity, and resolution, and further discuss their importance in practical terms. Using data from characterization and verification studies performed on the IntelliQube instrument from Douglas Scientific, we will also review approaches to evaluating these metrics, including assays and software tools that streamline the analysis and interpretation of performance testing results.

The OpenArray™ Nanotiter Plate Technology and Applications

Colin Brenan of Biotrove speaking at AMT 2006

Click here to launch presentation

Understanding biological complexity arising from patterns of gene expression requires accurate and precise measurement of RNA levels across large numbers of genes simultaneously. The preferred method for quantitative transcriptional analysis is real time PCR (rt-PCR) in a 96- or 384-well microtiter plate. Scaling rt-PCR to higher throughputs is intrinsically limited by cost and logistic considerations. Alternatively hybridization microarrays are capable of measuring transcription of many thousands of genes simultaneously yet are limited by low sensitivity, accuracy and sample throughput. We demonstrate a hybrid approach by combining the superior accuracy, precision and dynamic range of rt-PCR with the high density parallelism of a microarray in an array of 3,072 real-time, 33 nL polymerase chain reactions the size of a microscope slide. Real-time PCR in this nanotiter plate format results in substantial savings in reagents, measurement time and productivity. We demonstrate system performance by measuring tissue-specific expression of kinase genes in human heart and liver samples and transcriptional modulation by small-molecule perturbation of the TNF-alpha signaling pathway in HUVEC cells. Compared with the same assay in a 384-well microplate, we measured equivalent rt-PCR performance with a 64-fold reduction in assay volume, a 24-fold increase in analytical throughput and a workflow compatible with standard microplate protocols in an easy-to-use fomat.

Dynamic Arrays to Measure Expression of Nucleic Acids and Proteins

Michael Lucero of Fluidigm speaking at AMT 2006
Click here to launch presentation
A dynamic array is a biochip that employs integrated channels and valves in a matrix architecture. This matrix architecture is a breakthrough in efficiency because performing the same set of reactions by hand or with a robot would require orders of magnitude more sample, reagents, and pipetting steps.Dynamic arrays have been introduced that handle homogeneous or heterogeneous assays, such as real-time qPCR and ELISAs, respectively. BioMark™ dynamic arrays for qPCR accept 48 samples and 48 primer/probe sets. The components are combined into 2,304 assays (48 x 48).The chip is ideal to validate expression for 48 genes on samples from many individuals. Projected throughput of future chips is ~10,000 reactions. BioMark™ dynamic arrays for immunoassays accept 48 samples and 18 antibody pairs and generate 1,728 assays. Integrated valves prevent mixing between antibody pairs.Thus, dynamic arrays prevent signal crosstalk and eliminate the need to optimize antibody pairs for multiplexing in one vessel, a requirement with other formats. Instrumentation automates the loading of chips and analysis of results. Data produced on BioMark™ dynamic arrays for both applications will be presented, demonstrating a sensitivity of detection equivalent to conventional microwell plates while generating orders of magnitude higher throughput.

A Sequence Oriented Comparison of Gene Expression Measurements Across Different Hybridization-Based Technologies

Identification of New miRNA Markers for Breast Cancer with LNA Microarrays

Thomas Litman, Exiqon, speaking at RNAi Europe 2006
Click here to launch presentation
Abnormal expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in cancer implies that these small ~22-nucleotide molecules play a role in oncogenesis, and therefore may comprise a novel class of diagnostic and prognostic signatures. Here, we are studying the global expression profiles of miRNAs in breast cancer and adjacent non-malignant breast tissue in order to identify possible new biomarkers for breast cancer
Biopsies from primary tumors and from the proximal tissue (1 cm and 5 cm from the border zone of tumor) were collected from female patients (age 55-69) undergoing surgery for invasive ductal carcinoma. Total RNA was extracted and analyzed for global miRNA expression on a miRCURYTM LNA-based microarray platform containing capture probes for over 400 miRNAs.
Our analysis of miRNA expression patterns from tumor and proximity tissue revealed numerous differentially expressed miRNAs, including those reported to be associated with breast cancer, such as let-7a/d/f, miR-125a/b, miR-21, miR-32, and miR-136.
In addition, we have identified several miRNAs that have not previously been connected with breast cancer. Some of these novel miRNA signatures could have diagnostic and prognostic potential for breast cancer patients.

RNAi Based Toold in Apptosis Research

Yu Shen, Abbott Laboratories, speaking at RNAi Europe 2006
Click here to launch presentation
Several cases of off-target gene silencing were identified in our siRNA library screens (Lin X Nucleic Acids Research 33: 4527-35, 2005). However, despite the complications of off-target gene silencing, we successfully identified three cancer targets by screening an siRNA library against the “druggable genome” using a cell-death assay.
In addition, in an siRNA-based synthetic lethal screen, we found that knockdown of survivin led to the selective killing of K-Ras mutant cells. We also explored RNAi-based methodology for target validation in animal models.
We developed a tightly regulated shRNA expression system (Lin X. FEBS letter, 577: 376-80, 2004) and used this system to prepare stable tumor cell lines that conditionally expressed an shRNA for HIF-1a. These tumor cells were implanted in mice to form tumors that served as a versatile tool for studying the effects of inhibiting HIF-1 in vivo (Li L Cancer Research, 65: 7249-58, 2005).
Finally, we investigated several methods for the creation of germline knockdown animals. By modifying the standard methods, we successfully increased the transgenic frequency and F1 transmission rate and created tyrosinase knockdown mice with a lighter-coat-color phenotype that can be stably transmitted to the next generation.
