Strategies for syndromic testing and antibiotic stewardship – a critical role for urinalysis and rapid antigen testing
This webinar will explore urinary tract infections and respiratory diseases from the viewpoint of symptom presentation, differential diagnosis, and how diagnosis leads to better treatment and better use of antibiotics. Plus, the expert speakers will discuss how urinalysis and rapid antigen testing at the point of care are key components to an overall strategy for syndromic testing and antibiotic stewardship programs.

New on-demand webinar – Enabling successful digital pathology: Key factors for high-throughput routine diagnosis
There has been widespread adoption of digital pathology in a clinical environment over the past few years. Digital pathology holds many benefits for laboratories and patients including opportunities to drive workflow efficiencies to provide faster turnaround times for patient results, in particular for second opinions and referrals. In order to prepare the laboratory for digital pathology there are several factors that need to be addressed to ensure it is successful. This webinar discusses those key factors in detail, the importance in getting them right first time, showcases the Leica Biosystems Aperio GT 450 DX designed to scale up digital pathology for high-throughput routine diagnosis and how Leica Biosystems can support implementation.
New on-demand webinar – The importance of point-of-care testing in pediatrics
Pediatric populations present unique challenges when collecting and processing laboratory samples. Many pediatric areas collect capillary samples, which are prone to clotting. In these areas, it is also important to minimize the amount of blood taken during laboratory sample collection. Point-of-care testing (POCT) can often be a great option to help minimize pre-analytic errors, decrease recollections, and aid in blood conservation. Watch this webinar to discover the benefits of POCT in pediatrics, explore the challenges of collection and testing pediatric specimens, and understand the impact of POCT on the workflow of pediatric settings.
New on-demand webinar – Antibiotic prescribing dilemmas in the face of increasing resistance: How do diagnostics help?
There are a diminishing number of antibiotics in use today and very few drugs on the horizon. This, combined with the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on infection control practices, has caused an increased need for antibiotic stewardship. In this webinar, experts in antibiotic prescribing discuss their current practices for gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, as well as the most effective antibiotic stewardship practices at their institutions. Watch this webinar to understand how diagnostics can impact prescribing practices today.
