The Annual CCNE Meeting was hosted by the NSBCC in Manhattan Beach, California October 19-22, 2009. Tutorials presented at this meeting are now available.
Tutorial Session 4: In Vitro Diagnostic Tools: Multiplexed Assays Based on Nanotechnology
Speaker: Jim Heath, Ph.D., California Institute of Technology
This tutorial will discuss some practical considerations in terms of developing robust in vitro diagnostic platforms and accelerating their transition into the clinic. Topics will include the design and evaluation of protein biomarker panels, considerations (including surface science issues) relevant to demonstrating reproducibility and quantitation, the fundamental and overriding importance of quantitative assays, and relevant issues toward positioning a technology for potential commercialization.
