In this webinar, we discuss the immune response to SARS‑CoV2, both in the context of natural exposure to the virus as well as induced immunity from vaccination. We also investigate the relationship between symptom severity and the longevity of acquired immunity.


Role of Aberrant Cytokine Activity in the Host Immune Response to COVID‑19

Immunological Response Factors to SARS‑CoV‑2 in Acquired Immunity

In this webinar, we discuss the immune response to SARS‑CoV-2, both in the context of natural exposure to the virus as well as induced immunity from vaccination. We also investigate the relationship between symptom severity and the longevity of acquired immunity. Topics include:

    • SARS-CoV-2 virion and ACE2 binding
    • Initiation of the adaptive response
    • T- and B-lymphocyte maturity
    • B-lymphocyte conversion to memory & plasma cells
    • Factors affecting the duration of acquired immunity
BCR‑ABL1 MRD monitoring without standard curves: International inter‑laboratory study and clinical laboratory monitoring

BCR‑ABL1 MRD Monitoring Without Standard Curves: International Inter‑Laboratory Study and Clinical Laboratory Monitoring

Learn about Droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) for BCR‑ABL1 and its use in monitoring minimal residual disease (MRD). This webinar addresses:

  • Droplet Digital PCR for the accurate measurement of BCR‑ABL1 in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)
  • Performance data from an interlab comparison: linearity, precision and accuracy compared to qPCR
  • Case studies from a clinical laboratory using the QXDx BCR‑ABL %IS kit in routine monitoring
Role of Aberrant Cytokine Activity in the Host Immune Response to COVID-19

Role of Aberrant Cytokine Activity in Host Immune Response to COVID-19

In this webinar, we discuss early research and nascent hypotheses regarding the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 induced COVID-19 disease by evaluating cytokine and chemokine profiles, the role of chronic inflammation in comorbidities, and the arc of immune resolution of historical virulent pathogens, such as SARS and MERS.

Live Expert Panel Discussion on the relevance of COVID-19 testing

Expert Panel Discussion: Relevance of COVID-19 Testing with Droplet Digital PCR
