Recently FDA approved syndromic panel testing for pathogen detection. Will this revolutionize microbiology laboratory testing? Will this be the end of routine culturing?
Join us as we take a closer look at testing for gastrointestinal illness. These panels identify not only bacterial but also viral and parasitic pathogens. This program will discuss the advantages and potential pitfalls of using small, medium and large molecular panels for the identification of enteric pathogens in stool specimens.

At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify the difference in sensitivity between culture, small, and large molecular panels
  • Discuss the interpretation of results using large molecular panels  

Blake W. Buchan, PhD, D(ABMM), Assistant Professor, Pathology and Associate Director Clinical Microbiology, Medical College of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Diagnostic Laboratories, Milwaukee, WI
