With so many advancements in the landscape of molecular diagnostics, it is vital for all healthcare institutions to thoroughly understand and appropriately plan for common and potentially, high volume tests.
TORONTO (PRWEB) February 20, 2019
Group A Streptococcus (Group A Strep) remains fairly unchanged and is well-understood by the scientific community. However, our methods of detection have significantly improved as have the various options for testing. With so many advancements in the landscape of molecular diagnostics, it is vital for all healthcare institutions to thoroughly understand and appropriately plan for common and potentially, high volume tests.
In this free webinar, the featured speaker will review and explore the topic of “The Group A Strep Diagnostic Algorithm” and support a closing Q&A session. As part of his discussion, he will define and review items such as testing requirements, the disease state, prevalence in specific demographics and geographies, disease implications, the benefits and drawbacks of various testing methodologies and the testing needs of today’s variety of healthcare settings.
Join Paul Lephart, PhD, D(ABMM), Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Associate Director of the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory at the University of Michigan in a live session on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 2pm EST to learn about:
- What are the current methods of Group A Strep testing and their applications
- How inpatient and outpatient settings impact testing decisions
- Why should the microbiology lab consider adopting a PCR strategy for Group A Strep
