        T141 Advances in Technology for Molecular Testing

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

        Description: Molecular infectious disease testing is rapidly evolving and is being downsized and simplified beyond what was once imaginable. Advances in nanotechnology have paved the way for ever simpler and smaller molecular platforms.  The ultimate goal is high-performance, easy-to-use, sample-in/answer-out testing for all laboratories.

        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:

        • Describe the advances being made in molecular methods for the detection of microbial pathogens.
        • Recognize the miniaturization and simplification of highly complex molecular procedures and the extended multiplex capabilities of newer molecular platforms.
        • Discuss the impact such testing will have on the future of pathogen identification and clinical outcomes.
