Event Overview:

Molecular biological techniques such as PCR have become standard techniques for the optimization, identification and use of genetic material. In many cases, the quantity and quality of usable analytical material depends on collection, preparation and extraction before any analysis can take place. This webcast will examine molecular biology workflows used in many different fields from agricultural and cannabis to forensic and clinical sciences to give analysts a more in-depth knowledge of the interaction of sample preparation and extraction genetic analysis.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the function and interaction of molecular biology techniques such as PCR and qPCR and their relationship and use in the analytical laboratory
  • Review best practices for sample preparation, extraction, and isolation techniques used in molecular biology
  • Learn about laboratory hacks and practices to help analysts streamline and improve their sample preparation and analytical processes.

Who Should Attend:

  • Analysts, biologists, and chemists working with samples for genetic analysis in the fields such as agriculture, botanicals, cannabis, and forensic science
  • Anyone with interest in the interaction of sample preparation and molecular biological analysis involving PCR and qPCR
