Proteins are essential for most biological processes and exist in the cell in a dynamic state: changing in abundance, location, and in the way they interact with other proteins based on specific cellular stimuli.

Understanding drug-mediated modulation of cardiac contractility is an important question from both a therapeutic angle and a safety/toxicity angle. 

This webinar given by John Garratt, will cover how CPQA, Canadian Pathology Quality Assurance, assists labs to provide accurate biomarker testing by highlighting the breast cancer EQA program.

This webinar aims to illustrate how an automated advanced kinetic plate reader like the Hamamatsu FDSS can perform a wide range of electrophysiological functional assays from ion channel modulators screening to early safety studies. These possibilities are compared to those of dedicated high-throughput electrophysiological devices.

Presented at Photonics West Preview 2021. In this discussion, we bring together a broad sampling of experts in fields that employ optics and photonic instrumentation with the purpose of generating thought-provoking discourse on challenges and efforts to fight the disease.

Digital pathology is growing exponentially year by year since the first whole slide scanner was introduced in 1990. Initially within the UK, the market was mainly centered on research facilities, but the advantages are now being recognized within the clinical market and in particular within the National Health Service (NHS).

We invite you to join us for a roundtable discussion with two board certified veterinary pathologists Dr. Kevin Keel and Dr. David Gardiner. Veterinary pathology is considered an early adopter of digital pathology and had always seen the utility of these solutions to enhance education, training, drug discovery, research and diagnoses.

The global COVID-19 pandemic is the challenge of our time -- and in this webcast, we'll be learning about what photonics can do about it.

In this rapidly evolving healthcare landscape triggered by COVID-19, pathology, and remote diagnosis have been elevated to critical topics. Hamamatsu’s Scott Blakely will converse with Dr. Hanna and Stathonikos about overcoming the challenges associated with digital pathology implementation and the lessons learned during the process.

In flow cytometry, the light scattered off an interrogated cell contains information about the cell. The role of a photodetector is to transform this information from light signal to electrical signal. This task makes a photodetector an indispensable component of a functioning flow cytometer.
