Investigating the Human Immune Response With Myriad RBM's TruCultureĀ® System & NanoStringĀ® nCounterĀ® Autoimmune Profiling Panel, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Press Release ( - TORONTO - Nov 12, 2018 - Autoimmunity is used to describe almost 80 unique illnesses that include multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, type 1 diabetes, psoriasisĀ and rheumatoid arthritis, and is also increasingly a complication of immuno-oncology therapy. Research tools that allow for the study and characterization of autoimmune biology and development of gene signatures that predict an autoimmunity flare or response to a given therapy will be valuable assets for the research community.

In a live webinar upcoming on Monday, Dec. 3, 2018 at 12 p.m. EST, featured speakers will describe a protocol and application for combining Myriad RBM’s TruCultureĀ® system and NanoStringĀ® nCounterĀ® gene expression profiling to generate proteomic and transcriptional profiles of blood from healthy donors stimulated with a cytokine (TNFĪ±) or pathogen-associated molecule (staphylococcal enterotoxin B, SEB).

The speakers Anne Hwang, Ph.D., Scientist III at Myriad RBMĀ Inc., and Nathan Elliott, Ph.D., Scientist II at NanoString Technologies, will cover:

  • Applying the TruCulture blood collection and culture system for immune monitoring
  • A protocol for isolating RNA from TruCulture samples for downstream analysis using the NanoString nCounter Autoimmune Profiling gene expression panel
  • Data demonstrating the reproducibility of the NanoString platform and a correlation between NanoString transcriptional counts and Myriad RBM’s OptiMAP secreted protein measurements

Combining the TruCulture system with nCounter gene expression profiling enables the study of circulating immune responses using a rapid and easy collection and stimulation culture system followed by subsequent profiling of leukocytes from healthy or diseased cohorts.
