    Biography
      Dr. Jessica Wagener is Application Specialist focusing on Cell Handling at Eppendorf Headquarter in Hamburg, Germany. Entering a cell culture laboratory as a graduate student for the first time in 2006, she came to Eppendorf with 5+ years of experience in cell culture. After studying Biology at the Universities of Marburg and Düsseldorf, she investigated apoptosis mechanisms in different cell lines for her diploma thesis. Following one year as Research Associate working with primary cells she started to work towards her PhD with a focus on reproductive biology at the Medical School Essen. She joined Eppendorf in April 2012 shortly after completing her PhD in Biology.

      Abstract
      DATE:   March 7, 2019
      TIME:    8:00am CET
       
      PSCs represent an important tool in a wide range of applications, including basic research, disease modeling, drug discovery, and regenerative medicine. As stem cell cultures are very sensitive and respond to the smallest influence, stable culture conditions are crucial to maintain reliability and reproducibility of experimental data. In this educational webinar we will look at the different cultivation parameters, which can affect the viability and proliferation of PSCs during expansion. Join us to learn more about how to assess the quality of your stem cells and to preserve their pluripotency.
       
      Key learning objectives:
      • Important parameters for PSC culture: growth surface, medium, and culture environment
      • Assessing stem cell quality: PSC characteristics and genetic stability
      • Improving reproducibility: Detecting cryptic contamination (e.g. Mycoplasma, cross-contamination)
       
       
      LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
