COVID-19 VACCINATIONS: SARS-CoV-2 serology testing in the setting of vaccination

Hear from Dr. Angela Rasmussen, virologist at Siemens Healthineers, as she details how serology testing is necessary to understand whether vaccination results in seroconversion and a sustained response in each person, especially for high-risk/high-exposure people, describe how clinical serology testing is relatively low cost and high throughput, with fast turnaround and broad population access, and explain why this testing will be necessary to confirm seroconversion and a sustained response of neutralizing antibody. (P.A.C.E and AACC accredited webinar).
