This webinar explains a variety of issues and how to address them. Common issues such as collection methods, sample inhibition and sample volume will be addressed. Also, each unique technology, from standard PCR, to DNA fluorescent assays, from next generation sequencing to newer technologies such as point of care and digital PCR, will have their various sample challenges addressed. This webinar will give you the tools you need to deal with your laboratories challenges.

Since the beginning of the PCR revolution in the 1980s, molecular diagnostics have proven to be a useful tool for the clinical laboratory. The ability to analyze a variety of samples for DNA and RNA content have proven to be useful for a large number of clinical conditions using a number of different technologies. However, each technology has its pitfalls with how to handle samples for optimal results. In addition, different technologies have different challenges as to what can inhibit optimal results and each technology has a unique solution to these pitfalls.
 
  • Universal sample requirements for molecular diagnostics
  • Strategies to deal with common challenges
