Webinar: A simple, single-tube approach to process sexual assault samples

Register to attend this must-see forensics webinar: Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 11:00 am EST

Join Jeff Hickey, MicroGEM’s forensic expert and product specialist, to discover the advantages of temperature-driven, enzymatic sperm lysis including qPCR and STR data comparing the enzymatic chemistry to conventional sperm lysis methods. Jeff will also discuss its use in Y screening of sexual assault evidence, as well as its use in differential extraction protocols.

Webinar: A novel enzymatic system for extracting sequencing-ready DNA in a single tube

Register to attend this webinar featuring Jo Stanton (University of Otago) and David Saul (CSO, MicroGEM) on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 3:00 pm EST.

Jo and David will discuss a novel DNA extraction approach using thermostable enzymes and a thermoresponsive cartridge used with the PDQeX to enable extractions without centrifugation or harsh solvents. They will share study results demonstrating the quality of sequencing-ready DNA extracted from bacteria and how this rapid approach compares to traditional chemical-based methods.

Webinar: Tips for extracting DNA from insects

Register to attend this must-see webinar to simplify and improve your insect DNA extractions: April 1 at 7 am PDT | 10 am EDT | 4 pm CET

MicroGEM product specialist, Rob Thompson, will introduce a simple protocol for extracting DNA from insects using a single tube, without ionic detergents, magnetic beads or columns. He will use case studies featuring a range of insects including fruit flies, anopheles mosquitoes, and African whitefly, and will present qPCR data comparing enzymatic lysis with traditional spin-column methods.

LabRoots: Genomics Virtual Week 2020

Discover the latest research developments and emerging technologies at this no-travel conference, featuring the latest gene-editing applications as well as developments in single-cell work and molecular diagnostics.

Webinar: Remote, autonomous molecular analytical laboratories

Monday, June 29 at 9 am PDT | 12 pm EDT | 5 pm CET
Join MBARI's Christina Preston, research specialist, for a look at new ways to collect and analyze organisms in real-time. Click on the webinar title to register.

Molecular biological analyses, even RNA or DNA extractions, are typically confined to traditional labs. New technologies, such as the Environmental Sample Processor developed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), offer fresh ways to process samples to detect and quantify different species or substances. Learn more about ways to collect, handle, and analyze samples in real-time in remote field settings. These new technologies can reshape monitoring and management strategies of a range of organisms in diverse environmental settings. MicroGEM's RNAGEM plays a role in providing remote RNA extractions.

The advantages of a single tube, enzymatic approach will be discussed along with a special CRISPR use case.

Webinar: Advances and Insights in Forensic Sample Preparation

Discover how a single-tube enzymatic method enables efficient DNA extraction while preserving yields and reducing contamination and error. MicroGEM’s forensic expert and field application scientist, Jillian Conte, Ph.D., will introduce this simple approach for extracting DNA from forensic samples without detergents, beads, or columns. This temperature-driven, single-tube approach minimizes contamination, decreases human error, significantly reduces plastic and hazardous waste, and protects precious samples.

Attendees will learn how crime labs across the country use forensicGEM products to improve their workflows. Jillian will share insights on increasing throughput of differential extractions, extracting trace DNA samples, and will provide updates on upcoming research initiatives. A live Q&A session will follow the presentation.
