Join MNG Laboratories' Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Peter L. Nagy, and the Clinical Reporting Team as they present multiple case studies illustrating the value of using complementary testing and data analysis methods to increase the clinical sensitivity of MNG’s genetic testing portfolio. The team will highlight cases solved through the application of high resolution CNV assessment, mitochondrial DNA analysis, transcriptome/RNA sequencing, and repeat expansion screening from genome sequencing datasets. After the presentation, there will be a 15 minute Q&A with our speakers. 

Breakthrough UV-C Performance Enables Better Control for Lab Managers

This white paper makes the case for why UV LED technology deserves serious consideration by RNA sequencing labs for controlling ribonuclease in a laboratory setting. It describes Phoseon’s findings related to LED light engines for the inactivation of RNases in a laboratory setting.

Clinical laboratories are increasingly adopting molecular assays as an alternative to the tedious, time-consuming stool cultures that have long been the mainstay for testing patients who might have infectious diarrhea or conditions such as Salmonella or Campylobacter. With an estimated 1.7 billion cases of childhood diarrheal disease occurring annually around the world, this is a significant advance for gastroenteritis testing.
