    Biography

      Dr. Leslie Wolf began serving as Lab Director at Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness (LMPHW) in July of 2013. In January of 2017, Dr. Wolf was also appointed as a Clinical Assistant Professor to direct the University of Louisville Infectious Diseases Laboratory. Dr. Wolf is one of several leaders at LMPHW with a shared appointment at UofL, contributing to the success of LMPHW as an Academic Health Department. Dr. Wolf earned a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology with High Distinction from the University of Kentucky, and a PhD in Immunology/Microbiology from the University of Colorado. She began her career in public health in 1997 as a CDC/APHL Emerging Infectious Disease Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health. While serving as lab director at NCSLPH from 2006 to 2012, she earned the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) Emerging Leader Award. This award honors an individual whose leadership has been instrumental in one or more advances in laboratory science, practice, management, policy or education within his/her first 5-10 years in the profession.


    Abstract

    The University of Louisville Infectious Diseases Laboratory (IDL) is a high-complexity, CLIA-certified laboratory in Louisville, KY. The IDL adopted the Luminex ARIES® platform in 2016 for diagnostic testing to increase throughput while minimizing the risk of amplicon contamination. Our familiarity with the ARIES platform allowed us to pursue FDA Emergency Use Authorization for a duplex PCR assay detecting the N1 and N3 targets of the SARS-CoV-2 genome. This presentation outlines our methods, quality control material selection, the populations tested, the challenges we faced, and the future for the laboratory developed SARS-CoV-2 duplex PCR assay.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn how a lab responded to COVID-19

    2. Understand how to run a SARS-CoV-2 test on the ARIES® System

    3. Gain knowledge and an understanding of creating a Laboratory Developed Test (LDT) on the ARIES® System
