Title: Tech Transfer Webinar: Amoeba Cysts as Natural Containers for the Transport and Storage of Pathogens

Abstract

Sahar El-Etr, Biomedical Scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, shares a unique method for transporting clinical samples from the field to a laboratory. The use of amoeba as “natural” containers for pathogens was utilized to develop the first living system for the transport and storage of pathogens. The amoeba system works at ambient temperature for extended periods of time—capabilities currently not available for biological sample transport.
