Lunch Seminar, 12:20-1:45 pm, South China Sea Room, Register to attend
Agilent Innovations for Proteomics Research; Christine Miller (Agilent Omics Market Manager), Randy Bolger (Agilent Workflow Solutions Manager). Join us for a two-part presentation on proteomics research. Our first presentation will describe proof-of-principle results demonstrating the value of combining metabolomics and proteomics analysis for better biological understanding. We will highlight the tools used in this approach. Our second presentation will discuss automation to improve sample preparation of complex proteomics samples while improving reproducibility and consistency across longitudinal studies.

Q&A Session | Progenesis QI for Proteomics Users, 9:30 - 10:15 am, Register to attend
Come join fellow users of the latest version of Progenesis QI for proteomics to gain insight into how Progenesis can help you analyze proteins and characterize peptides. We'll discuss some of the new features in Progenesis Version 4.1 that help you identify the peptides and proteins of interest and learn more about the use of Spectral Libraries.
Lunch Seminar | Precision, Accuracy, and Throughput in Clinical Proteomics, 12:30-1:30 pm, Register to attend
Join us for lunch and see how Waters is addressing the challenges of throughput in clinical proteomic studies with precision and accuracy. SONAR™ on Waters bench top Xevo G2-XS® Qtof brings the speed and selectivity for accurate quantitative analysis of the plasma proteome. High throughput SONAR methods can be combined with quantitative kits such as the Biognosys PQ500™ for accurate absolute quantitation of human biological fluids. In this lunch seminar we will discuss the multi-omic application of SONAR for a respiratory medicine study.
Introduction of Absolute Quantification of Plasma Samples Based on Biognosys’ PQ500 Reference Peptides; Roland Bruderer (Biognosys)
Application of SONAR for enhanced throughput analysis with an exploratory targeted reagent strategy in clinical proteomics research; Lee Gethings, (Waters Corp.)
Overview | Progenesis QI for Proteomics, 4:00-4:45 pm, Register to attend
We invite you to get a better understanding of the concepts behind Progenesis QI for proteomics, one of the world-leading proteomics data analysis applications. Learn how missing values affects your experiment; understand the benefits of Co-Detection and why it is beneficial; see how Progenesis can investigate peptides; and learn how to create your own Spectral Libraries.
