        T133 Starting a Molecular Microbiology Laboratory


        Date: February 5, 2013; 2:00 p.m. (EST)
        Speaker: Frederick S. Nolte, Ph.D.

        Description: Molecular methods play an increasing important role in diagnostic microbiology and this trend will continue with development of new technology and continued improvement of assay designs and platforms. Consequently, molecular testing is expanding into a variety of clinical laboratory settings. This session is intended to provide practical guidance for those who are implementing molecular microbiology testing for the first time.

        Intended Audience: The course is open to anyone! However, since it is a practical course, laboratory personnel (e.g., medical technologists, supervisors, and directors) with a minimum of a bachelors-degree and familiarity with clinical microbiology would benefit the most. Limited to U.S. and Canadian residents.

        Objectives: Following this session, the participants should be able to:

        • Understand the principles behind different models of service; test menu selection; laboratory design, operation and workflow; and choosing test platforms for molecular microbiology.
        • Describe the aspects of financial management, intellectual property, regulation and accreditation that are unique to molecular diagnostics.
        • Discuss the availability of qualified personnel to perform this testing and routes for certification of clinical laboratory scientists and doctoral level directors of molecular diagnostic laboratories.
