Integrating testing for life-threatening respiratory viruses: Why performance matters
17 Jun 2022

During the COVID-19 pandemic, circulation of respiratory viruses changed dramatically, and recent flu seasons showed atypical patterns compared to pre-pandemic times. It is expected that upcoming seasons will return to normal with the co-circulation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and respiratory syncytial viruses.

Accurate testing for respiratory viruses is critical for managing hospitalized patients. Moreover, the surveillance of these viruses is key for global public health.

This webinar will discuss the important characteristics of laboratory tests for the detection of viruses for patient management.

Two experts in molecular biology will present a new flexible solution for the comprehensive testing of the most life-threatening seasonal viruses including SARS-CoV-2.
