Steve Budd, MBA, and Kevin Grady, BS, have extensive experience with culturing hard-to-grow cell lines and primary cells. Watch this webinar to hear these ATCC experts cover the following key points:

  • Using misidentified or cross-contaminated cell lines in experiments can invalidate research efforts; therefore, authenticating cell lines should be part of your cell culture work flow.
  • When culturing specialty cells, such as stem cells or primary cells, certain considerations regarding the choice of media and reagents must be taken.
  • Cryopreserving cells under optimal conditions is critical for maintaining cell viability. 

After the webinar, join the discussion as a panel of ATCC cell culture experts answer your questions!

Robert Molestina, PhD, is ATCC’s expert in developing multiphasic standards and methods for the detection of tick-borne diseases. Join this webinar to hear Dr. Molestina cover the following key points:

  • The most common TBDs in the United States are Lyme disease, caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, and babesiosis, caused by the protozoan parasite Babesia microti.
  • The accurate diagnosis of TBD can be complicated by the possibility of co-infection, which exacerbates disease symptomatology; therefore, more accurate detection methods are required.
  • ATCC scientists are working toward improving the diagnosis of babesiosis via cutting-edge technologies.

Briana Benton, BS, has significant experience in the design and development of mock microbial communities for microbiome research. Join the webinar to uncover the current challenges in this field of research and to discover how microbiome standards can be used in assay optimization.

Key Points:
  • Optimization at each step of the analytical process is essential to the validity and reproducibility of experimental data.
  • The consistent use of controls during each step of a workflow allows users to understand where biases are introduced.
  • ATCC has developed a wide range of fully sequenced and quantitative mock microbial communities that support the development and optimization of microbiome research workflows.
