Whitehat Communications has an upcoming webinar on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM Eastern. The presentation is titled Point-of-Care and Rapid Tests for COVID-19: The Mayo Experience.
Dr. Brad Karon, Co-Director of Hospital Labs at Mayo Clinic, will discuss types of tests available for point-of-care or rapid diagnosis of COVID-19 (rapid tests for SARS-CoV-2 RNA or antigen). Mayo Clinic’s experience with rapid testing will be used to highlight the challenges and opportunities that exist for rapid and point-of-care SARS-CoV-2 testing.
- Identify types of rapid and point-of-care tests available for SARS-CoV-2 detection.
- Define key issues to be addressed in implementing point-of-care testing for SARS-CoV-2.
- Review study/validation data and observed performance for two rapid molecular tests for SARS-CoV-2 RNA.
- Compare and contrast analytical sensitivity of lateral flow and fluorescence immunoassay rapid antigen tests for SARS-CoV-2.
