912-16 Diagnostic Algorithms in the ID of Microfilaria in Blood Films


October 4, 2016
Webinar

Filarid nematodes and microfilariae in blood films and biopsy specimens frequently present a challenge to the bench microscopist. Blaine Mathison of the CDC’s Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria will discuss diagnostic algorithms for the microscopic examination of microfilariae in blood and Onchocerca in tissue. Topics will include a brief overview of Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia spp., Loa

913-16 Rapid Diagnostics: Live Streaming for Bloodstream Infections


October 11, 2016
Webinar

Media streaming is an internet technique for transferring data so that it can be processed as a steady and continuous stream. It enables users to have fast access to download large multimedia files quickly. But what about that concept for microbiology? How can rapid detections methods converge with near real-time actionable data sets and near real-time trends in antibiograms to better inform

945-16 When Things Go Wrong: Lab Management of Nonconforming Events


October 13, 2016
Webinar

Nonconforming events (NCEs) do not conform with the laboratory’s established policies, processes, or procedures, or to applicable regulatory or accreditation requirements and have the potential to affect patient safety or the efficiency and effectiveness of work operations. The purpose of an NCE management program is to identify systematic problems and gain management’s

915-16 New Drugs. Few Tests. Practical Approaches to New Antimicrobials


November 1, 2016
Webinar

Over the past 5 years, several new antimicrobial agents have been cleared by the US FDA for treatment of human infections. However, with a few rare exceptions, no FDA-cleared antimicrobial susceptibility tests are available for these agents. This program will review these new antimicrobial agents, their spectrum of activity, and discuss practical approaches for the clinical microbiology laborator

946-16 VPD– Role of Prevention and Early Detection


November 10, 2016
Webinar

The increase in life expectancy during the 20th century is largely due to improvements in child survival which is associated with reductions in infectious disease mortality, due largely to immunization. However, vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs) remain a major cause of illness, disability and death. Approximately 42,000 adults and 300 children in the United States die each year from VPDs.
