        T137 The Molecular World of Clinical Virology


        Date: March 5, 2013; 2:00 p.m. (EST)
        Speaker: Richard L. Hodinka, Ph.D.

        Description: The diagnosis and monitoring of viral diseases has been revolutionized by the continuous development and implementation of molecular technology in the Clinical Virology Laboratory. An ever-growing number of viruses can now be readily detected, differentiated, and quantified by real-time PCR and other molecular amplification technologies.

        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:

        • Recognize the breadth of molecular tests available for viruses.
        • Compare and contrast the overall performance of molecular assays with that of traditional methods of virus detection.
        • Discuss the clinical utility of molecular testing for viral diagnosis and management.
