  • Webinar: Laser Microdissection in Cancer Research – Mutation Analysis Workflow with Pure Cancer Material

    Cancer can affect various organs and is caused by mutations of the DNA. A prerequisite, to explore and understand underlying gene-mutations involved in the development of a definite type of cancer, is the extraction of pure sample material, which is challenging. In this webinar, we will present how to extract 100% pure cancer tissue for DNA analysis with laser microdissection (LMD). Using tissue samples from human kidney cancer patients as an example, this webinar will provide an overview of the practical considerations when preparing a workflow to obtain highly pure material with the LMD microscope for further molecular analysis.

  • Webinar: Laser Microdissection in Cancer Research – Contamination-free Isolation of Tumor Material for Downstream Analysis

    In this webinar you will learn about the advantages of using laser mikcrodissection for precise, contamination-free isolation of specific cell types in various applications. Using pancreatic cancer tissue sections from patients and ortothopic xenografts as examples, this webinar will provide an overview of the scientific and practical considerations for obtaining highly pure material for further molecular analysis in the field of pharmacological studies to overcome key mechanisms of resistance in pancreatic cancer.

  • Webinar: Laser Microdissection – Dissection Perfection

    The two talks of this webinar are focussed on the practical advantages of this technique for a precise and contamination-free isolation and selection of single cells from brain sections for RNA downstream analysis and afterwards on cloning live cells from cultures for further cultivation and analysis. Laser microdissection is a microscope-controlled manipulation technique for the precise separation of samples using a guided focused laser beam.
