Bringing Molecular Testing Closer to the Patient
Over the past 20 years, there has been a continuous shift toward the decentralization of clinical laboratory testing. With recent advances in the speed and accuracy of point-of-care tests, it is now possible to bring molecular infectious disease testing closer to the patient. This webinar explores the benefits of molecular point-of-care testing as a means of improving patient outcomes and quality of care. Currently available testing methods are reviewed, with an emphasis on the importance of lab testing in the era of performance-driven healthcare.
