Converged IT Infrastructure in Life Science DVD Converged IT Infrastructure in Life Science DVD
April 21, 2015 |
This all-BioTeam workshop will focus on covering the entire array of best practices for converged infrastructure through hardware selection, configuration, software, and data management for life sciences research and clinical environments. BioTeam defines converged infrastructure as the unification of disparate hardware, software, and support personnel into a blended and tuned end-to-end solution that makes it easier for scientists and clinicians to accomplish their data interpretation goals. The agenda of the workshop will focus on presenting and discussing reference designs for networking, storage, HPC, cloud (public and private), and hybrid infrastructures, as well as scientific software installation, maintenance, and development best practices. The course is designed to inform IT organizations and tech-savvy scientists about the methodologies and best practices behind making the datacenter an extension of the laboratory in a manner that enables scientific discovery, rather than forcing science to adapt to IT infrastructure. This intensive 3 ½ hour course will leave you with many ideas for how to better support the scientists and clinicians within your organization.
Digital PCR Experiment Design and Primer DVD Digital PCR Experiment Design and Primer DVD
October 6, 2014 |
The course will provide a broad overview of microfluidics as an enabling technology for point-of-care diagnostics. The course is constructed to provide a comprehensive overview of the field, starting with an introduction to microfluidics and its principles. Different manufacturing options will be discussed. Emphasis is put on the complete development process for commercial microfluidics-enabled POC-products, covering aspects of development strategies, application cases, markets as well as aspects of commercialization. The course covers the existing product landscape as well as exemplary disease cases with examples from molecular and immunodiagnostics. The course is suitable for scientists, technicians, engineers but also business developers who would like to develop a deeper understanding of microfluidics as a key technology for the development of new product in the POC markets
qPCR in Molecular Diagnostics qPCR in Molecular Diagnostics
February 12, 2013 |
Quantitative real-time PCR is a valuable technology used for diagnostics of diseases such as cancer and infectious diseases, and for the detection of bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens. This course covers aspects of incorporating qPCR into standard molecular diagnosis including the challenges involved, an overview of the technology available, and next steps.
