Wednesday May 3, 2017 11:00 am ET 8: 00 am PT 17:00 CET DURATION 60 minutes COST Complimentary Speakers Quality Assurance of Biobanked Genomic and Cell-Free DNA Samples Qualification of genomic DNA and cell-free DNA for downstream analytical applications can be achieved by different methods and measurands. The pre-analytical phase includes collection, processing/DNA extraction, and DNA storage. Internal quality assurance of this pre-analytical phase is based on testing the DNA yield, purity, and integrity. External quality assurance of the pre-analytical phase is based on participation in external quality assessment (EQA) programs. In this GEN webinar, we will learn how the Agilent 4200 TapeStation system can streamline workflows for both internal and external quality assurance. Additionally, the underlying importance for qualifying extracted DNA from various biospecimens will be addressed. A live Q&A session will follow the presentations, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Who Should Attend • Biobank laboratory managers • Sample Processing Laboratories managers interested in standardizing DNA and RNA isolation • QA scientists and researchers working with genomic and cell-free DNA • Investigators interested in automating genomic sample analysis Free Registration! Webinars You Will Learn • How the Agilent 4200 TapeStation system can aid quality assurance of the pre-analytical phase • About new assays for the qualification of DNA samples for downstream applications • About the importance of EQA programs • How the DNA Integrity Number (DIN) can be applied to determine genomic DNA quality Produced with support from Rainer Nitsche, Ph.D. Product Manager TapeStation Systems Agilent Technologies Fay Betsou, Ph.D. Chief Scientific Officer Integrated BioBank of Luxembourg
