Agrisera Western blot workshop for The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center

The online workshop “Western blot – a technique possible to optimize” was conducted for researchers from The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center on the 14th of June by Dr. Joanna Porankiewicz Asplund, Agrisera Technical Support Manager. The participants were from different labs at Danforth center, namely the Allen Lab, Bart Lab, Carrington Lab, Eveland Lab, Gehan Lab, Mayer’s Lab, Nusinov Lab, Pandey Lab, Shah Lab, Slotkin Lab, Taylor Lab,  Umen Lab, and Zhang Lab. All who attended had the possibility to get their questions about the Western blot technique answered, and obtain new insights about optimization of this complex technique. The workshop was hosted by the CSTM co-chairs and represented by Dr. Thiya Mukherjee. The workshop was two hours long, with a tea break and the possibility to participate in a quiz with prizes. Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance, and is very welcome to contact Agrisera with any Western blot and antibody related questions in the future.

Visits and activities at Agrisera's facilities in May

The month of May was a busy month for us, with several visits and activities at Agrisera.  In the beginning of May, Agrisera representatives were present at a "Work Fair" for students, together with 17 other Life Science companies from Umeå. We received a lot of interest, and arranged a visit at our facilities for students from Umeå University the following week. This event, which many attended, offered information on job possibilities at our company, a presentation of our organisation, a guided tour of our facilities, as well as conversations with our staff.

Later the same month, Agrisera was visited by a group of final-year students from the science program at the local Maja Beskow secondary school. The students were shown our facilities, who we are, and what we do at Agrisera. We hope to have sparked their interest in pursuing science further, to eventually become our colleagues.Further, Agrisera CEO Erika Gelfgren, together with staff from our labs, attended the event "Job talk", held for students of Life Science and Biotechnology from Umeå University, where Agrisera, and future job possibilities at our company were presented. 
A big thank you to everyone who attended these events, visited us and showed interest in Agrisera!
