Brendan Technologies, Inc. Founder and Chief Technical Officer Invited to Teach by the IBC Life Sciences Training Academy

Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 Courses on the Subject of Analyzing Biological Assays

Dr. John Dunn, Founder and Chief Technical Officer of Brendan Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: BDTE), an innovative analytical software company, has been invited by the IBC Life Sciences Training Academy to provide comprehensive training courses for fall 2008 and spring 2009 on the subject of Analyzing Biological Assays to the biopharmaceutical industry. Dr. Dunn, one of the industry’s leading experts in this field, taught nine courses last year for IBC in the U.S. and Europe and has generated tremendous interest in this subject.

“These assays are critical tests that the biopharmaceutical industry uses for drug potency and other difficult tests required for drug development and drug release testing,” stated Dr. Dunn. “The development, analysis, and validation of these tests present many unique challenges that require effective solutions. We are pleased that IBC has provided an opportunity for the industry to gain more insight into the latest methods and techniques used for all aspects of immunoassay testing, which is our primary business focus.”

For twenty years IBC Life Sciences has been supporting and supplying the life sciences industry by providing specialized information through its conferences and courses. IBC Life Sciences has established leading industry events in North America, Europe, and Asia. The courses that Dr. Dunn will be teaching are to be held in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, and San Diego during the fall and spring months.

Background on Immunoassay Testing

Immunoassays are highly sensitive and specific chemical tests used to detect and quantify extremely minute substances in blood, body fluid and other biological samples, using an immunological reaction. These tests measure the formation of antibody-antigen complexes and detect them via an indicator reaction. Their high specificity results from the use of antibodies and purified antigens as reagents. High sensitivity is achieved by using an indicator system that results in amplification of the measured product. Immunoassays may be qualitative (positive or negative) or quantitative (amount measured).

Immunoassays are one of the world’s largest and fastest growing testing technologies used to diagnose diseases, discover new chemical entities and biological products, provide vital data in the development of drugs in FDA clinical trials, and assist in quality control of drug manufacturing and drug screening. It is also one of the largest technologies used in environmental testing. Currently, $50 billion is spent globally on immunoassay testing, with approximately $1 billion of that being spent on immunoassay software.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
