Webinar - Improved COVID-19 research with Bio-Techne automated platforms: from basic research to serological assay development


May 20, 2020 @ 9am PST / 12pm EST / 5pm BST
Learn about COVID-19 serology testing & research technologies


TOPIC

Timely research progression and assay development for COVID-19 is crucial and at the same time hindered by proper social distancing. Open, automated platforms like Simple Western and SimplePlex with the 48-Digoxigenin cartridge allow researchers to make much needed progress quickly by enabling immediate use of proteins and antibodies as they become available while at the same time minimizing time to results and time in the lab. 

In this webinar we highlight assay development strategies, discuss which assays in the COVID-19 space should be used for which questions and showcase new SARS-CoV-2 data on basic research applications as well as serological assays for COVID-19.
