RNA Integrity and Quality Standardize RNA Quality Control

RNA integrity and quality are critical to obtain meaningful and reliable downstream data. This webinar discusses the challenges and considerations of handling RNA samples, the need for quality control analysis and common methods for RNA integrity and quality assessment. The QIAxcel Advanced System will be introduced to automate the process of RNA sample integrity analysis and obtain objective quality measurement. Application data will be presented.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

Standardize and streamline ccfDNA-based liquid biopsy workflows through automation using the QIAsymphony SP

QIAsymphony protocols and kit solutions allow flexible automation for consistency and ease in cfDNA isolation. The PAXgene Blood ccfDNA System streamlines the complete ccfDNA preanalytical workflow, including blood collection, sample stabilization during transport, plasma generation and automated ccfDNA isolation. Dedicated QIAsymphony protocols appropriately address different target molecule populations. High and low sample input volumes and variable eluate volumes can be used, while the handling features of the primary tube minimize the risk of sample mix-up and reduce processing time and costs. The QIAsymphony Circulating DNA Kit standardizes ccfDNA isolation for regulated workflows and allows ccfDNA isolation from plasma using a variety of commonly used blood collection tubes and ccfDNA isolation from urine. Both QIAsymphony solutions demonstrate high performance in both PCR- and NGS-based downstream assays.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

NGS: Now integrated and connected with your lab operations

Are you choosing an NGS solution that offers connectivity with the rest of your laboratory operations? Imagine being able to track samples, record reagent lots, store results and manage workflows, all with the help of one easy software interface. In this webinar you will learn how to do this with the QIAGEN GeneRead Link Software.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

Identification and interpretation of pathogenic variants in cell-free DNA what are the challenges and how to overcome them

"Several studies have shown that the analysis of cfDNA enables the detection of pathogenic variants, which can be important for treatment decisions. The use of cfDNA has many advantages as it does not require surgery. Moreover, it may help in the detection of early tumor recurrence and upcoming resistance. However, due to dilution from non-cancerous cells, variants are expected at a very low allele percentage, which makes it very hard to detect them and to separate them from false positives. In addition, the interpretation of data in terms of being able to identify pathogenic variants can be challenging as well. In this webinar, we will show how cfDNA data from next-generation sequencing can be analyzed with a high level of accuracy. In a case study, we will compare variants identified in cfDNA with those identified in the buffy coat and tumor, and show potential new candidates. "

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.
