Advances in molecular diagnostic testing

Consolidation of HPV, Trichomonas vaginalis and CT/NG testing on an integrated, fully-automated instrument

November 13th | 1:00 - 2:50 pm
Valley of the Sun Ballroom D
Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Arizona

Laboratories of all sizes face the common challenge of having to produce more results with fewer resources. Labs are being asked to increase testing volume and menu options with fewer skilled employees, declining reimbursement, and reduced budgets.

One viable solution to maximize productivity is menu consolidation with integrated automation. Hologic is hosting a best practices workshop which brings together key opinion leaders to share data and perspectives on HPV, CT/NG, and Trichomonas vaginalis testing.  They will discuss how assay consolidation using the Panther® system, a high-throughput molecular diagnostic instrument, can improve overall efficiency for your lab.
