What is a microarray? And why you should care.

Arrayjet is delighted to be joined by partners Innopsys and Grace Bio-Labs for a free educational webinar.

Tune in to gain three specialist industry insights on how the latest microarray technology could help achieve your research goals.  Ideal whether you are new to the technique, or an experienced scientist looking for a refresher.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
• Understand what microarrays are and how they are made
• Review examples of how they are used across biopharma, diagnostics, and research
• Hear about the slides, reagents and other tools required to perform a microarray
• Learn about fluorescence detection and how you can quantify fluorescent images of your microarray

Protein Microarrays for Systematical Deciphering of SARS-CoV-2 Specific Humoral Immune Responses

Arrayjet welcomed Sheng-ce Tao from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.  The Tao Lab have constructed a SARS-CoV-2 protein microarray and analysed the antibody responses of >1000 COVID-19 patients.  They generated a comprehensive antibody response (IgG and IgM) landscape and have identified potential biomarkers for predicting the severity and outcome of the patients.

Furthermore, this landscape will facilitate our understanding of SARS-CoV-2-specific humoral responses and might be useful for vaccine refinement.

We hope to re-run this event in the near future, allowing time for an additional lively Q&A session - keep an eye on our LinkedInTwitter, and Facebook channels for registration details!

Multi-pronged functional proteomics approaches for biomarker discovery in chronic and infectious diseases

Arrayjet welcomed Manuel Fuentes from Centro de Investigación del Cáncer (IBMCC-FICUS) to discuss how protein microarrays are proving crucial in biomarker discovery.  Manuel was joined by Angela-Patricia Hernandez, Pablo Juanes-Velasco, and Alicia Landeira-Viñuela.

The team has extensive experience in developing protein microarrays in many formats and with different samples in order to deepen the understanding of biomarkers in chronic illness, cancer, and infectious disease.

Carbohydrate Microarray and Novel Glycoprofiling Applications

Combining the high-throughput capacity of car­bo­hydrate microarray with the specificity of monoclonal antibodies has potential across many applications.

William George Tycho Willats from N8 AgriFood, and Silvia Vidal Melgosa from Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, demonstrated ways to determine substrate specificity of carbohydrate-active enzymes, and how the same principle can be used to screen other enzymes types, such as proteases.

Seromics: Decoding the Antibody Fingerprint

Each individual carries a 'fingerprint' of antibodies that describes a lifetime of immune experiences to foods, allergens, viruses, the microbiome, and other exposures. This fingerprint is exceptionally unique to each individual and can remain stable for decades - but what does it mean?

In this talk, CDI's director of Biomarker Development Tyler Hulett, PhD, will discuss the potential importance of anti-viral and autoantibody seromics technologies - what we already know about the antibody fingerprint - and what we still don't know - using example data from SARS-CoV-2, cancer, and autoimmune patients.

High-Density Protein Arrays and Affinity Proteomics

Arrayjet welcomes Ronald Sjöberg and August Jernbom Falk from the KTH affinity proteomics group at the SciLifeLab in Stockholm to discuss the high-density protein array developed by the Peter Nilsson group. 

Ronald heads up the Autoimmunity Profiling facility and supported by the Human Protein Atlas offers proteome-wide screening for autoantibody reactivity, epitope mapping, and antibody validation.

August talks about autoantibody profiling in psychiatric disorders.
