Horiz line purple

Thursday, May 10, 2018
1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT  | 12:00 – 1:00 PM CDT
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM MDT  |  10:00 – 11:00 AM PDT

PACE® and Florida Laboratory
Credit will be available

This basic level webinar is produced by Whitehat Communications and sponsored by Bio-Rad Laboratories.
Molecular Diagnostics has resulted in tests of exceptional sensitivity, which has improved diagnostic procedures for diseases where no effective testing was formerly available. The sensitivity of molecular diagnostic testing can also be an Achilles heel. Minute amounts of contamination can threaten the reliability of results. Any failure or deterioration of instruments and reagents can also have an impact on patient results.

This complexity at the analytical, operational, and economic levels creates significant risks for labs conducting molecular testing that are best mitigated through effective quality assurance programs.
