    Abstract:

    DATE: April 27, 2017
    TIME: 10:00am PT, 1:00pm ET

    Mass spectrometry is increasingly being used for clinical testing and evaluation of patients in various settings.  The utilization of this technology is driven by its potential to perform challenging analyses in complex matrices and sample types.   While mass spectrometry is a powerful tool, there are also some challenges that must be addressed for it to be routinely used for medical testing.  This presentation will discuss the increasing use of mass spectrometry for clinical testing, discuss challenges for implementation of the technology, and present some cases where it may have significant impact in medical care.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Describe how mass spectrometry is currently used in clinical laboratories
    • Discuss the challenges regarding implementation of mass spectrometry into routine testing
    • Define areas where mass spectrometry can be used to positively impact medical care
