27 Sep 2021

SelectScience® hosts dozens of informative and insightful free webinars for scientists every month, featuring world-class speakers at the very forefront of their respective fields. In this regular feature, we highlight the events you won't want to miss over the next week or so, as well as some of our top on-demand webinars.

Register now to save your spot and hear from experts as they discuss the latest research, techniques and technologies in their fields, from the use of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin in the emergency department and point-of-care blood gas testing to breath-based diagnostics, a new imaging data management platform and quality control practices in the clinical laboratory, and more. 


POINT-OF-CARE: Is the effort really worth the result? hs-cTn at the point of care or lab?

This webinar will cover the utilization of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (cTn) in the emergency department (ED) and its impact when delivered via a rapid point-of-care (POC) device or core laboratory. In a moderated debate format, the case for using a point-of-care test to deliver high-sensitive cTn results will be presented, debating potential advantages in efficacious assessment of patients where myocardial infarction (MI) is part of the differential diagnosis.
