Custom Solutions Large and Small:

Let ATCC’s Core Competencies Ensure Your Project’s Success

11/19/2020

In this webinar, ATCC experts Kevin Grady and April Jeffrey will showcase how our laboratories and biorepository can provide customized solutions for organizations that choose to outsource critical processes. Learn:

  • The importance of cell authentication to support reliable and relevant research.
  • How ATCC scientists can use their expertise to engineer the cell modifications you need to advance your research.
  • How ATCC can produce, scale-up, store, and distribute your biomaterials under cGMP compliant conditions.

Sangeeta Kumari, MS, is an expert at using CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing technology for creating advanced cell-based models. Watch the presentation to learn how this cutting edge technology was used to create epithelial-mesenchymal transition reporter cell lines.

  • ATCC scientists used CRISPR/Cas9 to engineer an E-cadherin EmGFP (ECAD-EmGFP) reporter knock-in into a breast epithelial cell line.
  • The integrity of the ECAD-EmGFP knock-in was verified at the genomic, mRNA, and protein level.
  • This advanced cancer model can be used to track EMT status of cells in vitro by monitoring GFP expression.

In this webinar, ATCC bacteria propagation expert Nancy Krueger will cover various methods to achieve the growth of a wide variety of bacteria, focusing on these key takeaways:

  • Specific growth requirements should be tailored to ensure the successful propagation of individual bacteria strains. Different atmospheres, temperature ranges and other growth conditions will be discussed.
  • New bacterial isolates may present unique growth issues.
  • A rational approach to troubleshooting can ensure the resolution of poor growth.

In this webinar, ATCC expert Kathleen Glaser will discuss protistology, presenting these key takeaways:

  • What defines a protist, and why these organisms are relevant not only to scientists but also to the general community.
  • An in-depth look at some of the best practices for propagating, preserving, and authenticating protists.
  • An examination of the special techniques that have been adapted at ATCC for the evaluation and cultivation of difficult-to-grow protists.

Join top virologists Adria Allen, Alexander Piccirillo, and Megan Yockey for an in-depth look at viral propagation strategies used at ATCC. This webinar will cover these takeaways:

  • ATCC cultures viruses with several basic propagation types (e.g., lytic, cell-associated, persistently infected cells, egg propagation).  
  • Multiple tools and processes are used to optimize protocols, including multiplicity of infection (MOI) optimization. 
  • ATCC authenticates and tests each virus to make sure we are distributing the highest quality products to our customers. 
  • ATCC uses numerous strategies for troubleshooting (e.g., mycoplasma cleanup, failure to grow, adaptation to new host cells).

In this webinar, ATCC microbiologist Britany Tang will give an overview of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that presents these key points:

  • Understanding the nature of the disease (COVID-19)
  • Understanding what other coronaviruses tell us about SARS-CoV-2 history, genomics, and epidemiology
  • Explaining the advancements in scientific and clinical research and development and how ATCC is contributing to the fight against COVID-19

Are you concerned about working during the current lockdown environment? Join ATCC president and COO Ray Stapleton, Ph.D., and managers Melissa Pieja and Jonathan Waldron in a lively discussion that will cover these key takeaways:

  • When the recent coronavirus pandemic hit, operations in laboratories throughout the world were affected.
  • ATCC has adopted a battery of best practices that minimize transmission of SARS-CoV-2 with little impact on productivity.
  • ATCC experts will share what they do to keep the staff safe, current challenges, and the silver linings of the new normal.

In this webinar Diversigen, Inc. scientist Dr. Tasha Santiago-Rodrigues will discuss the field of viral metagenomics, focusing on the following key points:

  • Implementation of viral standards and controls can help determine biases that could be potentially introduced at different stages of a viral metagenomics pipeline.
  • Identification of biases in a viral metagenomics study provides the opportunity to troubleshoot and benchmark reagents and analysis tools. 
  • Viral standards may evolve to mimic simple and more complex viral communities in diverse environments.

Brian Shapiro, Ph.D., is adept at developing assays that incorporate primary cells. Join this webinar to hear this ATCC expert cover the following key points:

  • Differentiated iPSCs lend the ability to run large toxicity studies and drug screens on highly biologically relevant cells.
  • ATCC iPSCs were used as the source for three types of differentiated cells: CD34+ progenitors, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), and monocytes.
  • ATCC R&D scientists have generated in-depth data showing the iPSC-derived cells can be incorporated into immunoassays and further differentiated into cell types such as osteocytes, chondrocytes, and adipocytes.
