Agrisera Western blot workshop at KBC, Ume University

Agrisera Western blot workshop at KBC, Umeå University
On the 22nd of November, the workshop "Western blot – a technique possible to optimize” was conducted for researchers from the Chemical Biological Center (KBC) and Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC) at Umeå University by Dr. Joanna Porankiewicz Asplund, Agrisera's Technical Support Manager. All who attended had the possibility to get answers to their questions about the Western blot technique, and to obtain new insights into the optimization of this complex technique. The workshop was two hours long, with a tea break and the possibility to participate in a quiz, with the prizes being Agrisera high-titer secondary antibodies and two ECL reagents with different sensitivities (AS18 SecondaryECL). Each attendee is very welcome to contact Agrisera with any Western blot and antibody-related questions in the future. Agrisera's Western blot troubleshooting guide, antibody production posters and pens were offered to participants. Thank you to all who attended in person and online!

Agrisera at KBC Days 2022

Between the 8th and 9th of November, Agrisera attended the KBC Days, an annual interdisciplinary conference, taking place in person, after having been a digital event for the last two years.

KBC is the Chemical Biological Center of Umeå University, and this year the center celebrated its 15-year anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, there was a photo contest with the title "KBC is...", where the participants were invited to share their vision of what KBC is for them.

The main theme of the 2022 KBC Days conference was "Big data", and the talks from different areas discussed advantages and challenges of collecting, analyzing and interpreting big data.

PhD students held 2 minute elevator picthes, presenting their work, accompanied by visual abstracts. The evaluation committee found it hard to choose only one winner of the Agrisera Best PhD Presentation Prize, and awarded two winners! 

Thank you to all who came by Agrisera's table to talk antibodies, collect Agrisera Educational Posters, and discuss new antibody ideas. It was great to be able to meet in person again, and we are already looking forward to the 2023 KBC Days! 

Agrisera will be holding the technical workshop "Western blot – a technique possible to optimize" for KBC, on the 22nd of November, between 13.00 and 15.00, in person as well as online.

If you are attending this workshop, you are welcome to send in your Western blot questions in advance!
