Traditional testing strategies for meningitis and encephalitis require multiple assays, are labor-intense and can take 48-72 hours to obtain results. This delay in receiving actionable information can be detrimental to a patient’s health. Find out how a comprehensive meningitis/encephalitis PCR panel can yield clinically actionable results in just one hour by registering for this free webinar.

Join this free webinar to hear how collaboration between an infectious disease physician and a laboratory director made a difference in treating patients presenting with meningitis/encephalitis in a community hospital.

Meningitis and encephalitis pathogens can manifest with similar symptoms. Traditional testing strategies require multiple assays to look for more than one pathogen at a time, are labor-intense and can take 48-72 hours to obtain results. This delay in receiving actionable information can lead to worsening symptoms, unnecessary antimicrobial and/or antiviral therapy and increased length of stay in the hospital.

Equipped with a comprehensive meningitis/encephalitis PCR panel, scientists can test for a set of 14 of the most common bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens in a single test in about an hour. This can allow physicians to get clinically actionable information rapidly, potentially improving patient care, length of stay and costs.

Featured speakers Javeed Siddiqui, MD, MPH, Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of TeleMed2U, Inc. and Arpad Peter, BSMT, Director of Laboratories, Chief Clinical Laboratory Scientist at Adventist Health Howard Memorial will discuss the benefits of implementing a rapid multiplex diagnostic test for meningitis/encephalitis in a community hospital.

This live webinar will take place on Thursday, December 05, 2019 at 1pm EST and includes a live Q&A with the speakers.
