    Biography
      Vera Tesic, MD, MS, D (ABMM), works as an assistant professor of pathology and assistant medical director of clinical microbiology and immunology laboratories, at the University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, Illinois. She completed her training in pathology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, followed by a fellowship in clinical microbiology at the University of Utah, ARUP Laboratories. Her areas of interest include application of new technologies into clinical laboratory practice and implementation of cost effective diagnostic tests for infectious diseases, with a particular focus on syphilis testing.

    Abstract:

    There are new generations of comprehensive multiplex molecular panels available for infectious diseases syndromic diagnostics. They are able to rapidly detect and identify the most common pathogens in blood, cerebrospinal fluid, stool and respiratory specimens. Use of multiplex molecular panels is associated with quicker turnaround time, reduction of other unnecessary laboratory tests, faster diagnosis and targeted treatment. Although with initial increase in supply laboratory costs some studies showed improvements in infection control and cost savings with reduced cost of care.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Explain diagnostics by multiplex molecular panels
    2. Asses impact, advantages and limitations 
    3. Identify the opportunities to improve testing
