We are passionate about making life better with multiplex diagnostics at the Point of Need.
This is why, alongside Select Science, we have brought together expert speakers to talk about the importance of this for respiratory infections in the wake of the pandemic.
Webinar: Rising to the challenge: diagnosing, treating and managing respiratory infections using rapid PCR testing at the Point of Need
Thursday, July 14th, at 12:00 BST / 13:00 CEST / 07:00 EDT / 04:00 PDT
Diagnosing, treating and managing clinically similar respiratory infections can be challenging. Flu, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and SARS-CoV-2 all present with similar symptoms.
It is important to be able to provide clear differential diagnosis for respiratory infections and enable rapid triage and effective treatment strategies, particularly in at-risk groups of patients. Flu, RSV and SARS-CoV-2 therapies require detection for each individual pathogen, and identification of co-infection is important.
Webinar attendees are invited to join our experts who will discuss the need for rapid, accurate PCR respiratory panels and present new data from a newly available rapid Point of Care PCR panel from QuantuMDx.
The newly available panel delivers rapid PCR results in 35 minutes at the Point of Need, providing healthcare professionals with the tools they need to treat efficiently and effectively with on-demand accurate results.
