From myocyte isolation to data acquisition, analysis, and post-analysis plotting, join Dr. Michiel Helmes and Dr. Diederik Kuster as they demonstrate best practices and new techniques in high-content, higher throughput investigations of excitation-contraction coupling in isolated cardiomyocytes.
During this 60 minute live webinar, Michiel Helmes and Diederik Kuster will deliver a comprehensive how-to demonstration of higher throughput excitation-contraction coupling investigations with isolated cardiomyocytes.
Characterizing excitation-contraction coupling in isolated cardiac myocytes has been essential to our understanding of heart function. Historically these studies have been constrained by lower throughput data collection and limited sample sizes. Because isolated myocytes display a high degree of functional variability, acquiring data from more myocytes is required for greater accuracy and statistical confidence.
In this webinar, we will demonstrate important aspects of data collection from myocyte isolation to precision data acquisition, data analysis, and post-analysis interpretation. We will focus on how to get the most out of every isolation, how to collect quality data consistently, why statistical power matters, and how to get statistically meaningful data in hours.
Key Topics Include:
- Get more from less: learn to maximize data from each animal
- Quality and quantity: best practices for data acquisition
- Knowledge is power: understand what your data means and how to interpret it
- Go beyond numbers: see how to get automated, same-day post-analysis data plotting and processing
