Analysis of Oligonucleotides using OligoSearch, a purpose built software for confirming Full Length Product and Annotating Impur
The analysis of oligonucleotides can be difficult because the synthesis and degradation of the intended products can also generate impurities. These impurities add to the complexity of oligonucleotide sample analysis and consequently, the annotation of these impurity species ( a critical step for R&D, process improvement, and reliability) can be very time-consuming. OligoSearch software simplifies this process by (1) accepting the oligonucleotide sequence for the product in a common format (.txt,.csv, or .xls) (2) provides sample-specific processing methods with FLP and impurity information, and (3) creates a single-click process for the acquisition and data analysis of large sample sets. The result of this automated analysis is searched against a software-generated impurities database, annotated, and reported. This seminar will cover the Oligo Search software, LC/TOF and LCQTOF acquisition considerations for optimum oligonucleotide performance, and MassHunter data processing techniques.

Potency Analysis of Hemp Using LC/MS iQ
In this webinar we will present the new Agilent LC/MSD iQ system to screen and quantify commercial Pet CBD oil. Hemp oil is defined as CBD with less than 0.3% THC. We have developed a turn key application which uses intelligent reporting to show a quick pass or fail for THC content. We will demonstrate the power of m/z for confirmation of compound results while allowing you to quantitate with a large dynamic range and optimized scan speeds. We will also demonstrate the use of spectral confirmation and library searching capabilities. So much m/z power in a very small lab footprint.

Broad Genomic Testing for Oncology Clinical Trials and Clinical Practice

Genomics is a key element in the potential of precision medicine to transform oncology. Hybrid-capture based targeted next-gen sequencing (NGS) represents a particularly promising option for cancer genomic testing, as it enables the profiling of all cancer-relevant events with the advantage of being compatible with formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue. 

The Glasgow Precision Oncology Laboratory (GPOL) has defined the content required to capture the full range of clinically and biologically important genomic events that characterize solid tumors and turned these into a range of SureSelect cancer NGS assays, the first of which, dubbed Cancer Core, will be presented during this webinar.

In this webinar, Dr. Cooke, head of Medical Genomics of the GPOL, will share:

  • How the GPOL has built affordable, fit-for-purpose, cancer NGS solutions using the SureSelect target enrichment platform, specifically to address the challenges of real-world oncology.

  • How the GPOL is implementing broad genomic testing as part of its mission to accelerate the translation of novel cancer therapeutics from discovery to clinical applications.

Targeted RNA Sequencing: Easier, Faster, and with Less Sample
Researchers often need to obtain both DNA and RNA sequencing data from their complex samples. Targeted RNA sequencing is an approach that generates better data, even from lower-quality FFPE samples. However, RNA sequencing often requires a more labor-intensive workflow compared to DNA sequencing.

In this seminar, we discuss Agilent’s development of a targeted RNA sequencing workflow based on its SureSelect XT HS chemistry. This simplified workflow enables the parallel processing of DNA and RNA from the same sample. In contrast to previous approaches, this workflow has fewer steps, allows for lower variable-quality RNA input, reduces turnaround time, and utilizes molecular barcodes. We will show proof of concept data demonstrating the ability to detect gene fusions and measure gene expression in several real-world samples using this approach.

Thermal Analysis of Petrochemicals
In the webinar titled "Thermal Analysis of Petrochemicals", we describe a number of examples that illustrate how thermal analysis can be used to investigate the physical properties and behavior of petrochemicals.
Industrial applications of Petrochemicals

Petrochemical compounds are derived from crude oil, making this raw material the starting point and basis for very many products. The products include fuels, different kinds of chemicals and practically everything made of plastics. This is why the analysis of petrochemical compounds is so important.

Crude oil production currently amounts to about 1000 million tons per year and is still growing. Approximately 90% is used as fuel and gasoline, while about 10% is converted to chemicals and plastic materials.

 
Thermal analysis of petrochemicals

The most important effects that can be analyzed by DSC are the glass transition, melting and crystallization behavior, transition and reaction enthalpies, and thermal stability.

TGA is normally used to study compositional analysis, thermal stability and decomposition, evaporation and desorption behavior.

TOA is the method of choice for characterizing optical properties such as changes in morphology and cloud point effects.

The main applications of DP are the dropping and softening points for material characterization.
