Validating Lab Testing During a Novel Pandemic
The landscape for SARS-COV2 virus diagnostic testing is rapidly evolving. The greatest challenges are to efficiently analyze and safely introduce testing in your laboratory.
Different laboratory tests are available for SARS-COV2 virus detection – one assists in determining if a person has an active infection and another helps determine if the immune system has mounted a response to viral antigens.
Timely and accurate laboratory testing of specimens is an essential element of the response, supporting decisions on infection control strategies and patient management at healthcare facilities.
Objectives of this webinar:
• Understand the laboratory’s role in validating and testing of novel coronavirus
• Review current methodologies available for COVID-19 testing and their limitations
• Learn more about the timely and sequential application of molecular and serological testing, from symptom onset until patient recovery
