WEBINAR: The Future of Syphilis Testing: Improve your workflow with novel technologies

Sponsored by: Bio-Rad Laboratories
Speakers

Abstract
DATE: December 5, 2017
TIME: 08:00am PST, 10:00am CST, 11:00am EST, 5:00pm CET
 
Recently there has been a resurgence of Syphilis infections over the last several years with rates of new syphilis infections increasing particularly in high risk populations (i.e Men who have sex with men). Serologic tests in conjunction with clinical presentation remain the primary modes of diagnosing Syphilis infections. Several serology tests are commercially available including standard EIA/CLIA treponemal tests, manual non-treponemal tests, automated non-treponemal tests and finally a novel fully automated dual treponemal/non-treponemal multiplex test. The webinar will provide an overview of Syphilis clinical presentation, diagnostic methods, algorithms, and comparisons of current assay performance. The speakers will also present their performance data from evaluations of the new BioPlex 2200 Syphilis Total & RPR Assay and how this assay can be incorporated into your laboratory syphilis testing algorithm.
 
After this webinar, you will be able to:
  • Describe and explain the advantages and disadvantages of the two syphilis testing algorithms
  • Compare the performances of different syphilis diagnostic assays
  • Understand how to incorporate different assays into your laboratory algorithm
