TATAA Biocenter Expands its real-time PCR offerings with Analytik Jena´s qTOWER3
TATAA Biocenter, the world´s leading provider of hands-on training in molecular analyses, expands its qPCR instrument park with Analytik Jena´s qTOWER3. “People come from all around the world to TATAA to be trained in qPCR, and they expect getting chance to try out the best qPCR instruments there are. The qTOWER3 is certainly one of them and it will become an attractive option to those looking for a new instrument.” says Dr. Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter. TATAA Biocenter courses are arranged around the world and supported by all the leading instrument and solution providers in molecular analyses. TATAA is also instrumental in quality control and standardization of molecular testing, being member of the European efforts SPIDIA (www.spidia.eu) and CANCER-ID (www.cancer-id.eu) standardizing the preanalytical steps and blood based analyses, respectively. “We are very proud of the collaboration with TATAA Biocenter. Now, we have the possibility to compare the qTOWER³ to similar qPCR instruments on the market. It is perfect for us to give users opportunity to test it head-to-head to other instruments on the market at the TATAA courses”, says Melanie Jahn, product manager at Analytik Jena.

Olink Proteomics Webinar15th August
“Proteogenomic strategies to advance drug development and precision medicine”
TATAA Biocenter’s partner Olink Proteomics are sponsoring a Science/AAAS-hosted webinar: Gain new insights into how proteomics and genomics are now increasingly joining forces to improve the clinical utility of protein biomarkers and to enhance drug development strategies.
When? Wednesday September 6, 2017 at 12:00 pm U.S. Eastern Time/18:00 Central European Time
This free event will feature presentations from Professor Ulf Gyllensten (Uppsala University) & Dr. Anders Mälarstig (Pfizer Sweden)
During the webinar, the speakers will:
- Discuss how covariates (genetic, environmental, and clinical) can affect the levels of potential biomarkers
- Explore the use of covariate modeling to establish personally normalized plasma protein profiles (PNPPP) to reduce non-disease-related variation and maximize clinical potential
- Describe how protein quantitative trait loci (pQTLs) can provide insights into disease biology and improve the efficiency of drug development
- Answer your questions live during the broadcast!
