Rotor-Gene Q: A Rapid, Automated Real-Time PCR Instrument for Genotyping and Microbial Identification with Excellent Efficiency, Reproducibility and Support

"Molecular testing for the identification of bacterial and viral infections as well as gene mutations from raw livestock samples and medical research specimens is always a challenging task. It requires a multistep approach to optimize assays and to eliminate inhibitory effects in PCR amplification. Laboratory benchtop PCR assay setup procedures can be very labor intensive and unreliable, which is reflected in its prolonged assay time, poor reproducibility and increasing total assay costs. The need for automation has led to the development and introduction of robotic laboratory instruments, aiming to decrease operator errors and process time, and to increase process safety. We have developed a selection of robust, novel chemistries to prevent PCR crosstalk. We can successfully measure target abundance and fold change in real-time assays, and perform sub-genotyping using a fast, high-throughput and powerful High-Resolution Melting (HRM) statistical analysis program. We have also tested a liquid handler for quick PCR assay setup to eliminate manual steps and increase productivity. In this presentation, we will demonstrate these features and benefits with examples."

Circulating miRNA and RNA identification for biomarker assessment

"Circulating RNA can serve as a powerful biomarker for patient stratification and assessment of overall health and prognosis. In this webinar, we will focus on using next-generation sequencing (NGS) for identification of miRNA and mRNAs from biofluids, including best practices for designing and executing a successful experiment. While RNA is vulnerable to degradation in serum/plasma due to the abundance of RNAseq and other degrading enzymes, mRNA and miRNA are protected within exosomes and other type of vesicles. Enrichment of exosomes from biofluids provides a supply of RNA biomarkers which can be profiled by NGS and further verified using targeted sequencing or qPCR. In this webinar, we will show how QIAGEN’s QIAseq miRNA Library Kit with Unique Molecular Indexes (UMIs) gives researchers several advantages compared to other small RNA sequencing kits. QIAseq miRNA delivers a gel-free workflow down to 1 ng of total RNA input and its proprietary chemistry minimizes ligation and increases the number of miRNA reads by actively blocking non-relevant, contaminating side products and RNAs. Other kits on the market may include a gel-free workflow or reduced ligation bias, but their protocols and methods fall short on delivering these promises. With the inclusion of UMIs in the QIAseq miRNA Library Kit, researchers are ensured that they have sequenced deep enough to cover the entire library and PCR and sequencing bias and errors are removed. In addition, we will address workflows for exosome mRNA discovery using stranded RNAseq and subsequent verification using targeted RNA-seq. QIAGEN’s exosome RNA discovery pipeline starts with a global view of the expressed RNA which is accurately identified using QIAGEN Biomedical Workbench’s tunable algorithm and verified using QIAseq Targeted RNA Panels which employ UMIs to ensure accurate quantification and adequate sequencing depth for each sample you run. Come listen to the RNA experts discuss the ‘next generation’ of sequencing-based workflows for biomarker detection and verification!"

What’s the ‘Plus’ in QuantiFERON®-TB Gold Plus? A webinar program for TB Controllers and public health professionals

"QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus is now FDA approved and will soon launch in the US. The new QFT®-Plus features innovative CD8 technology that provides a more comprehensive picture of a patient’s immune response to TB antigens. Join Dr. Masae Kawamura for a dynamic discussion regarding scientific advancements in TB testing and CD8 technology, including a review of case scenarios applying the insight of QFT-Plus. This program is designed specifically to meet the needs of TB Controllers and others working in the Public Health sector. Presenter: Masae Kawamura, M.D. Senior Director, Medical & Scientific Affairs – TB Diagnostics, QIAGEN Dr. Kawamura is QIAGEN’s Senior Director of Scientific and Medical Affairs for TB diagnostics. She has been a TB clinician for more than 25 years and served as San Francisco’s TB Controller from 1996 to the end of 2011. Over a decade ago, under Dr. Kawamura's leadership to promote public health innovation and operations research, San Francisco became the first jurisdiction in the United States to implement interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) blood testing for TB as part of routine screening practice and eventually, contact investigation.
