Webinar: Screening Functional Biomarkers for Chemosensitivity using Miniaturized Assays
July 26, 2018 : 08:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM ET / 04:00 PM GMT / 60 Minutes
Evaluating therapeutic candidates for their efficacy requires tools that can perform rapid quantitative measurement of multiple biological readouts along with the ability to analyze large data sets and provide actionable insights. In this webinar two scientists will share how they used the Intellicyt® iQue Screener Plus platform to advance their research.
- What BH3 profiling is and how it works
- How BH3 profiling can be used to screen for chemosensitivity
- How simultaneous evaluation of T-cell activation and cytokine secretion provides valuable insights for optimizing adoptive cell therapy development
