A New Multiplex Syndromic System For Respiratory Diagnosis And Improved Patient Care

GenomeWebinar

Director of Research and Clinical Trials, Tricore Reference Laboratories

This webinar discusses how a new multiplexed testing system can help physicians rapidly diagnose acute respiratory infections in the near-patient setting.

Acute respiratory tract infections are caused by a wide range of viral and bacterial pathogens and may share similar clinical presentations that make it difficult for physicians to diagnose based on symptoms alone. Syndromic testing with multiplex molecular panels offers clinical labs a way to quickly distinguish between a broad array of respiratory pathogens.

Join Dr. Steve Young of Tricore Reference Laboratories as he presents a new technology for multiplexed respiratory testing in acutely ill patients. He shares data demonstrating the capabilities of syndromic respiratory testing as well as his impressions on the ease of doing comprehensive syndromic testing using the QIAstat-Dx solution*.
