    • Application Specialist Cell Handling, Eppendorf AG
        Dr. Jessica Wagener is Application Specialist focusing on Cell Handling at Eppendorf Headquarter in Hamburg, Germany. Entering a cell culture laboratory as a graduate student for the first time in 2006, she came to Eppendorf with 5+ years of experience in cell culture. After studying Biology at the Universities of Marburg and Düsseldorf, she investigated apoptosis mechanisms in different cell lines for her diploma thesis. Following one year as Research Associate working with primary cells she started to work towards her PhD with a focus on reproductive biology at the Medical School Essen. She joined Eppendorf in April 2012 shortly after completing her PhD in Biology.

      1951 the first human cell line HeLa entered cell culture labs worldwide. 70 years later, we know that at least 129 cell lines are contaminated with HeLa cells with dramatic implications on the validity of past cell culture related research. The fact that at least 509 cell lines are misidentified (ICLAC 2020) reveals a significant need for solid cell authentication that is increasingly required by scientific journals and auditing authorities.


      In this webinar, we will discuss principles, methods, and share best practices to check cell identity. Join us to learn more about preventing cell misidentification by incorporating Good Cell Culture Practice into your daily routine and become a true cell culture expert.


      Do you have questions for the experts?


      Join the live Q&A session to deepen your knowledge, ask questions, and optimize your process. All questions asked during the live webinar or recorded session will be answered by our experts – during the Q&A session or afterwards.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Cell misidentification - What's that?
      • Explain and learn about causes and consequences of working with the wrong cell line
      • Discuss how to choose a cell authentication method
      • Discuss the background of STR amplification and capillary electrophoresis (CE) for successful cell authentication and how to apply these methods correctly



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