SARS-CoV-2 related human proteins Integration of transcriptomics and antibody-based proteomics for cell...

In this webinar, Cecilia Lindskog presents the cell type-specific expression of ACE2 across more than 150 different cell types corresponding to all major human tissues and organs based on stringent immunohistochemical analysis. The results are compared with different datasets both on the mRNA and protein level. She also discusses the importance of integration of transcriptomics and antibody-based proteomi...

Host Cell Proteins (HCP) Immunoassays and Role of Mass Spectrometry in Identification of HCP Im...

A well-developed and broadly reactive HCP ELISA remains a gold standard method effectively used during the purification process to ensure removal of HCPs and to demonstrate process consistency and final drug substance purity. Regulatory guidelines require that sponsors use orthogonal methods for demonstrating antibody coverage to individual HCPs and provide a comprehensive assay qualification package t...

Veterinary diagnostics Titer Testing with VacciCheck

Pet owners are looking for alternatives to annual or even triennial vaccination and research has shown that positive titers are strong proof of immunity. Veterinarians that offer titer testing affirm their position as experts in animal care and give their teams a sense of pride in what they do. In this BioGal sponsored lecture, Bash Halow, CVPM, LVT, and author for Veterinary Economics, AAHA Trends, and DVM360...

Cytokine Storm in COVID-19 What drives the severe tissue damage

A subset of COVID-19 patients experience cytokine storm syndrom with elevated levels of inflammatory cytokines in the lungs, leading to tissue damage. To assess these cytokines, researchers can use multiplex assays, like BioLegend's LEGENDplex™, to quantitate the factors made in response to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Understanding what drives severe tissue damage during COVID-19 infection will better help us u...

Immunohistochemistry Blocking of Endogenous Peroxidase Activity

Endogenous peroxidase (HRP) present in tissue sections can result in background when using an HRP detection system if this activity is not quenched. Methods for quenching this endogenous enzyme activity include treating with BLOXALL Endogenous Enzyme Blocking Solution or with various preparations of hydrogen peroxide. In this video tutorial, Vector Laboratories demonstr...

Immunohistochemistry Tissue Staining with VIP Peroxidase Substrate

Vector® VIP and ImmPACT™ VIP substrates fr4om Vector Laboratories both produce intense, violet reaction products, and can be used as alternatives to DAB or as a second color for multiple antigen labeling. Vector VIP and ImmPACT VIP substrates also provide excellent color contrast in pigmented tissues such as melanoma. With the aid of imaging systems and software, the sp...
