Respiratory Viruses: Considerations for Multiplex Testing from the Lab to Point of Care

Genome Webinar

Associate Professor;
Laboratory of Virology, Bichat-Claude Bernard Hospital

This webinar will discuss considerations that labs need to take into account when adopting rapid multiplex PCR testing for respiratory viruses in the clinical setting.

The development of rapid multiplex PCR tests enables the detection of almost all respiratory viruses in a few hours. These tests provide a deeper understanding of respiratory viruses' epidemiology among children or adults, as well as community- or hospital-acquired infections. They also allow clinicians to consider viral etiology to improve isolation management, antibiotic use, or a patient’s length of stay.

While these tests offer clear benefits for some patient populations, labs looking to adopt rapid multiplex PCR testing must balance their costs against the impact on patient care.

In this webinar, Dr. Benoit Visseaux of Bichat Claude Bernard Hospital, a university hospital in Paris, will discuss his experience with multiplex PCR testing for respiratory viruses. Dr. Visseaux will discuss the implementation of these tests in the context of improving patient

This webinar will discuss a study that set to assess the efficacy and safety of osimertinib in EGFR T790M positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients identified by using plasma sample and cobas EGFR Mutation test v2. This is the first prospective study to use liquid biopsy upfront to evaluate osimertinib efficacy.
