    Biography
      Duane Newton, Ph.D., D(ABMM) is currently the Director of the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, as well as the Associate Director of the Division of Clinical Pathology, both in the Department of Pathology at Michigan Medicine.
      Dr. Newton completed Post-Doctoral training at the University of Tennessee and the VA Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee and a Clinical and Public Health Microbiology Fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Clinical Microbiology Laboratories in Rochester, New York. In 2000 he was appointed as Manager of the Virology/Immunology Section of the Department of Community Health, Division of Infectious Diseases, Bureau of Laboratories for the State of Michigan and as Adjunct Assistant Professor for the Michigan State University Medical Technology Program. In 2002, he joined the faculty of the Department of Pathology at the University of Michigan Medical School as Clinical Assistant Professor and Associate Director of the Microbiology/Virology Laboratories.
      Dr. Newton was named Director of Microbiology/Virology Laboratories in 2003 and received his certification as a Diplomate by the American Board of Medical Microbiology in 2004.
      His research interests lie in the development of molecular assays for the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases.

    Abstract:

    Management of complex quality control (QC) data is essential to insure high quality patient care and maintain regulatory compliance within clinical laboratories.  Robust software solutions for management of QC data exist for clinical chemistry applications but are scarce in molecular diagnostics.  This session will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore solutions offered by Bio-Rad Unity for the management of QC data generated in qualitative and quantitative molecular diagnostics assays.  Practical examples of the storage, review, and management of QC data generated using Abbott’s HIV-1 viral load assay will be demonstrated. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Outline current challenges in management of molecular quality control data
    2. Discuss solutions for QC data management available with Bio-Rad Unity
    3. Describe characteristics of Bio-Rad and other third-party external controls in HIV-1 viral load assays
