Date:10/31/2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

Industry leaders from around the world will convene in Cambridge, MA for Sample Prep East conference which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge December 9-10 2013. One of the many anticipated presentations will include Latarsha Carithers, a PhD, Project Manager at the National Cancer Institute as she presents “Acquisition of High Quality Tissues to Support Genome Wide Association Studies”

Featured Abstract:

“Acquisition of High Quality Tissues to Support Genome Wide Association Studies”
Latarsha Carithers, PhD, Project Manager, Office of Biorepositories and Biospecimen Research, National Cancer Institute
The Genotype-Tissue Expression project is a NIH Common Fund study that is aimed at understanding how genetic variation influences gene expression in normal tissues. The purpose of this presentation is to describe a biospecimen collection platform that was developed to address the logistical challenges of acquiring a large collection of high-quality tissues from rapid autopsy and organ donors that was needed to support genome wide association analysis for this study.

Sample Prep East Conference Overview:
The Sample Prep East Conference is the 8th meeting in the Knowledge Foundation’s Sample Prep Conference Series - an internationally recognized meeting for experts in sample preparation technologies for detection, identification, diagnostics and analysis of biomedical, biological and chemical agents, substances and threats in point-of-care, laboratory and field settings will explore the latest R&D developments, ready-to-market technologies, and their applications by exploring the following topical areas:

  • Robust methodologies for sample collection, (pre-)concentration, lysis, and target extraction
  • Critical role of sample prep in early diagnostics
  • Rapid sample-to-sequence techniques
  • Point-of-care sampling, detection and analysis
  • Sample preparation with microfluidics
  • Sample prep-on-a-chip
  • Robust sampling methodologies (automation, high-throughput, combinatorial approach in sample prep)
  • Alternative amplification techniques for sensitive sample prep
  • Sample preparation as a separate system vs. an integrated module approach
  • End-user prospective for biodetection and sampling technologies and devices
  • Alternative and disruptive approaches to sample preparation and applications
  • Field-ready devices: compatibility/reliability/scalability
