Eric Brassard
GE Healthcare Sales Specialist Protein Sciences
Working From Anywhere With UNICORN™ Add Flexibility to Protein Purification Workflows
In this presentation, we will discuss working remotely using UNICORN™. We will examine the required steps to implement this capability thus increasing productivity and flexibility in your research and process development labs.

GE Healthcare Technical Sales Specialist, Chromatography
Introducing MabSelect™ PrismA
Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) have become the dominant category of biotherapeutics. With high demands on productivity and cost-efficiency, the bioprocessing industry is still facing many challenges. More recently, trends toward high titer expression and purification media has led to productivity gains. We will review the newest chromatography media with improved binding capacity to resolve bottlenecks in production and exceptional alkaline stability for efficient cleaning and sanitization.
Larry Bell
GE Healthcare Bioprocess RFB/Single-Use Technology Sales Specialist
Single-Use Solutions for Upstream Bioprocessing
This presentation will provide an overview of manufacturing technologies of modern single-use innovations. We will review how these technologies can further increase speed and ensure product quality in process development, manufacturing and facility operations.

GE Healthcare: Product Strategy Manager, Biacore
To Affinity and Beyond
SPR based biosensors are now firmly established as essential tools during the entire drug discovery process – from early stage R&D through to QC and manufacturing. They can be used for a wide range of applications including optimization of protein constructs, verification of proper and consistent protein folding, identification of optimal assay buffer to screening and detailed characterization studies of both low molecular weight and biotherapeutic compounds. In this seminar we will provide an introduction to Biacore SPR with data driven examples highlighting its uses in a broad selection of application areas.

Paul Belcher

Paul Belcher

Functional Leader, Biacore at GE Healthcare

Paul received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom in 2003. During his postdoctoral training, he worked under George Pettit at Arizona State University working on the first total synthesis of the natural product dolastatin 16, a potential cancer therapeutic. While at Arizona State, Paul established a label-free screening program for screening/characterization of large libraries of compounds to enable the development of synthetic probes to challenging targets. At GE his focus has been on the value of drug-target binding kinetics for investigating structure-activity relationships and drug efficacy. He also works on fragment-based lead discovery, interacting predominately with small molecules screening groups within academia and industry to implement and optimize label-free methods for drug discovery. He is a frequent speaker and has given over 400 lectures at conferences and pharma/biotech industry sites and Universities globally.
