Don't miss the IDEXX RADIL European Seminar Series: Coming to Stuttgart and Cambridge
“Are my cell lines contaminated?”
“How do I ensure and protect the integrity of my research?”
“Is there a better way to monitor the health of my research animal colony?”
Learn answers to these questions and more at a symposium and lunch discussion coming to a location near you!
Presentations about how you can protect the integrity of your cell line and animal research will be given by Drs. Lela K. Riley and Cindy Besch-Williford, internationally recognized scientists from IDEXX RADILTM.
Cell Line and Biological Materials Testing
Assessing the genetic integrity of cell lines to ensure validity of research findings
Studies revealed that 15-30% of all cell lines used in research are cross-contaminated or misidentified. Use of these contaminated cell lines results in erroneous research findings and wasted research time and money. This talk will explain the methods recommended by an expert panel for detection of genetic contamination of cell lines.
Infectious agent contamination of cell lines
Mycoplasma is a notorious contaminant of cultured mammalian cells. We will discuss the various methods for detection and eradication of Mycoplasma and other microbial pathogens, including human pathogens that may pose a health risk to laboratory personnel working with cell lines and tumors.
Health Monitoring and Infectious Disease Diagnosis in Laboratory Rodents
Quality assessment of the research animals – and what problems adventitious agents can create in your research program
Infectious disease outbreaks in research animals create unwanted variables in animal-based investigations. Programs that monitor the health of research animals are critical for assurance of the quality of research studies. This talk will overview approaches to research animal health monitoring and describe the latest technologies that allow comprehensive testing from samples rather than live animals.
Discovery of Pneumocystis spp. as a cause of lung lesions in immunocompetent rodents
Results of recent studies conducted at IDEXX RADIL show that Pneumocystis is a cause of pneumonia in immune-competent rodents that can have deleterious effects on respiratory and other research projects.
Seating is limited, but still available. Please be sure to register as soon as possible so that we may plan for your attendance.
There is no cost for the symposium.
