Abstract

DATE: November 5, 2020

TIME: 9:00am PST, 12:00pm EST

 

With accelerating development and approval of cell therapies, biologic drugs, and antiviral treatments comes a need for more robust and reliable cell-based assays and validated analysis systems. In this seminar a variety of techniques for immune cell isolation, expansion, and characterization will be demonstrated in cell-based immunotherapy and virology models using powerful cytometric instrumentation. Special focus will be given to immune effector function assays to characterize the potency and specificity of CAR-T and natural killer cells. Additionally, scalable screening methods based on recent innovations in high-throughput flow cytometry, partnered with regulatory-compliant acquisition and analysis software, will provide valuable additions to your portfolio of assays for immunotherapy and virology research.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Techniques for immune cell isolation, expansion, and characterization

  • Immune effector function assays to characterize the potency and specificity of CAR-T and natural killer cells

  • Salable screening methods for cell-based immunotherapy models

  • Viral entry, replication, and the host immune response

 

 

Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
