Webinar: Trypan Blue vs Fluorescent Cell Counting

Trypan Blue vs Fluorescent Cell Counting
Are you using the right method?

Please join our webinar, during which we will highlight the differences between trypan blue and fluorescence-based cell counting methods. We will also introduce key cell counting method evaluation concepts derived from ISO standards. Webinar attendees will learn:

  • The morphological effect of staining cells with trypan blue
  • How to get accurate primary cell counts using fluorescent dyes
  • Which method is the best fit for your cell quantification purpose

Live Webinar: Interested in Improving Cell Counting Method Development for CAR-T Cell Therapy?

Cell Counting Method Development for CAR-T Cell Therapy

November 06, 2018, at 16:00 GMT / 11:00 EST / 08:00 PST / 17:00 CET

Cell Counting Method Development for CAR-T Cell Therapy

If you’re a researcher involved in cell counting, you’ll know just how important it is for all stages of cellular therapy. Join us on Tuesday, November 6th as Dr. Leo Chan, Technology R&D Manager at Nexcelom Bioscience, discusses the crucial need for accurate and consistent cell counting methods for development and manufacturing of CAR-T under GMP/GLP conditions.

This talk will cover:

  • What is the importance of cell counting in cell therapy?
  • What are the inherent issues of trypan blue and manual counting?
  • What are the sources of error using trypan blue?
  • What parameters should be investigated for qualifying your cell counting methods?
  • How does Cellometer fit into each step of the cell therapy process?

Who should attend:
Researchers in the immuno-oncology field, researchers in cellular therapy field, general researchers that count cells on daily basis.

Live Webinar: “Patients derived organoids (PDOs) to model therapy response ex vivo”

Join us on Thursday, June 7th for an informational webinar by Somaieh Hedayat of The Institute of Cancer Research. She will discuss different approaches to recapitulate the metastatic niche and compare PDOs drug responses observed in the laboratory ex vivo with clinical responses observed in patients and how those techniques will allow the study of PDO drug responses in the pre-clinical setting strengthening their value as a platform for drug screening, discovery and development.

About Somaieh Hedayat: Somaieh Hedayat is working towards a PhD on how the tissue microenvironment can affect the response of metastatic colorectal cancer cells to antiangiogenic therapies. Prior to beginning her PhD, she spent 10 years working as a Higher Scientific Officer (HSO) in the Drug Discovery Unit on target validation and cancer biomarker projects. After gaining experience in in vivo and ex vivo biology, she decided to adjust her career path slightly and in 2016 embarked on a PhD.
