Access to reagents especially enzymes for research and diagnostics have become very important now more than ever following the disruption in global reagent supply chain due to covid-19 pandemic. Though several challenges abound in the space of local enzyme manufacturing eg; IP restrictions, scientists and researchers globally have been up to the task to increase their local capacities to produce in-house enzymes needed for research and covid-19 testing.

Therefore, in other to highlight the work of researchers and scientists championing local enzyme manufacturing, learn, foster global collaborations and have discussion among ourselves, the Open Bioeconomy Lab is organizing a 3 hours virtual Local Manufacturing of Enzymes for Research and Diagnostics Symposium on June 10, 2020 from 2-5pm (GMT).

Below is a structure of the workshop:

  • This will be a collection of presentations and breakouts covering existing local manufacturing activities in the Reclone network, challenges to be addressed and specific discussions on:
  • What is possible with the Research in Diagnostics Collection? (and other shared reagents on the Reclone platform)
  • What experiments need to be run to trial the collection components and produce validated protocols?
  • What support do you need to explore moving from production of reagents for research to production of reagents for diagnostics?
  • How do we divide up the effort and who can contribute?
  • What papers, protocols and other research outputs we expect to arise and where to put them.

Note: Due to the different time zone for each participants find below the different start time of the event to help you plan accordingly.

Start time: 2pm (GMT) 7am Vancouver
10am Santiago
2pm Accra
3pm Yaounde / Cambridge
6pm Addis Ababa
