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.

Key learning objectives

    • Learn about the relevance of respiratory virus testing
    • Understand the importance of highly sensitive and inclusive assays for testing hospitalized patients with respiratory symptoms
    • Discover a new flexible solution for clinical laboratories enabling the management of seasonal respiratory viruses

Who should attend?

Laboratory Directors, Laboratory Managers, Public health managers, Researchers, Epidemiologists, Virologists, MDs, Pulmonologists, Regulatory Specialists
