Our pricing/rates schedule will change effective July 1st 2016. For a majority of our customers the rates will remain the same. For our external (non-CHOP/UPENN) academic customers our rates will increase by 10% across all services. Commercial rates will still be 2X our internal subsidized rate. This will allow us to comply with CHOP institutional core lab pricing policies.
Research Core Tech Talks
A new seminar series, called Research Core Tech Talks, will launch January 17, 2017. The series provides a unique opportunity for research cores to highlight their capabilities and available resources. The seminar series will also showcase how the facilities can help investigators and advance research through new and specialized technologies.
The January 17, 2017 seminar will feature Sean Ren, MD, PhD, of the Translational Core Lab. Dr. Ren will introduce Ella, an automated immunoassay system in comparison with ELISA and MSD.
The seminars will be held from 11 am to noon in CTRB 4040, with the exception of the Feb. 21 seminar. Light refreshments will be provided at each event.
HALO by Indica Labs
We have a singe seat license (in lab use only) for HALO by Indica Labs. HALO is a whole slide image viewer and analysis platform. HALO adds additional features and tools for annotating images, making figures, and performing image analysis. Right now we are targeting this for users who would like to do whole slide analysis on slides scanned with our Aperio IF scanner. We have the following image analysis algorithms available so far: Area Quantification (brightfield and IF), Cytonuclear Quantification IF, and Microvessel Quantification IF.
