Tutorials, Workshops & Seminars

JPT holds tutorials, workshops and seminars for researchers that use or plan to use peptide microarrays (Catalog RepliTope™ or custom PepStar™ peptide microarrays or Enzyme Substrate Microarrays), or PepMix™ peptide pools and PepTrack™ peptide libraries for antigen-specific T-cell stimulation. We aim to provide thorough insights into the microarray technology, how to use peptide microarrays and in data evaluation, as well in the the ELISPOT technique. Have a look below for further details!

EURIPRED Workshop: Peptide Microarrays in Immunology and Vaccine Research

Get started with peptide microarrays as research tools for poverty related diseases – A EURIPRED course

JPT PepStar™ peptide microarrays
Applications in Immunology and Vaccine Research


JPT Peptide Technologies offers researchers, interested in the humoral immune response, a practical course on high-throughput seroprofiling and antibody epitope mapping using peptide microarrays. Learn how to get robust and reliable scientific results, easily and quickly!
The workshop includes hands-on laboratory sessions, using JPT’s RepliTope™ and PepStar™ peptide microrrays, tutorials, tips & tricks and presentations by experienced peptide microarray specialists from JPT.
Participants have the opportunity to screen their own sample of interest¹.

Venue:
JPT Peptide Technologies GmbH
Volmerstrasse 5, 12489 Berlin, Germany

Costs:
The course is free of charge through the EURIPRED project for researchers from EU-Member States and Associated States² (except Germany). Ideally, interested scientists should consider research using peptide microarrays available through EURIPRED for use in their projects. The number of participants is limited to 12, however, additional courses will be held in the near future.
Participants will be selected by a EURIPRED selection panel based on their eligibility.

Topics:
The world of peptide microarrays: applications, possibilities, limits
Introduction to experimental procedures
Introduction to equipment
Tips and tricks for peptide array experiments
Data evaluation: image evaluation
Data evaluation: generation of numerical data
Data interpretation and representation
Group discussion of applications and projects

Wet lab work:
Assay set-up
Sample incubation
Detection with secondary antibody
Readout with microarray scanner

¹Due to the work environment, only non-infectious samples are permitted.
²Associate States are: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Israel, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey
