Contamination is an everyday challenge in cell culture labs. Undetected or ignored contamination and misidentification of cell lines endanger the reliability and reproducibility of your experimental results.


In this educational webinar presented by Eppendorf and hosted by SelectScience® you will learn how to recognize and identify different types of contaminants in cultivated cells. We will discuss how to apply aseptic techniques and preventive hygiene and give practical tips for preventing contamination by incorporating standard procedures into your daily culture practice.
 
Key topics

  • Types and sources of contamination (e.g. mycoplasma)
  • Cell line authentication
  • Aseptic techniques and preventive hygiene

Webinar Time
Tuesday, March 31, 2015
10:00 - 11:00 am

Featured Speaker
Dr. Jessica Wagener
Field Application Specialist Cell Handling (Eppendorf AG)

A live Q&A session will follow the presentation, offering you a chance to pose questions to the presenter.

Eppendorf epMotion® 96

The new Eppendorf epMotion® 96 is an easy to use bench top system for fast and high precision pipetting in 96- and 384-well plates. As an affordable solution it overcomes the limits of manual multichannel pipetting. Enjoy the epMotion 96 video that shows the ease-of-use with three application examples (multidispense 3 x 100 µL in stack of cell culture plates, fill 384-well plate by 4 x 96 channel indexing, pipette and mix mode).

Save time and money while getting better reproducibility of your results from cell based assays, ELISA, cell seeding, nucleic acid quantification, plate reformatting or other applications.

Eppendorf and the journal Science are now accepting applications for the 2015 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology. This annual international research prize of US$25,000 is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiology research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. Researchers who are 35 years of age or younger are invited to apply by June 15, 2015. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science’s Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern.

The 2014 prize was won by the US scientist Eiman Azim, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Columbia University in New York. Eiman Azim’s work offers fundamental new insights into the neural mechanisms that enable skilled limb movements to be both smooth and precise. His research has provided direct support for long-standing theories about the roles of internal feedback pathways within the central nervous system and external feedback from the muscles in regulating fine motor control.

For more about the prize and film interview with Eiman Azim, go to www.eppendorf.com/prize.
