Conventional culture methods are often limited by a long time to result or the occurrence of negative results due to the administration of antibiotics or fastidious growth requirements. As an accepted alternative, culture-independent approaches are widely used.

In this webinar, Dr. Michael Lustig will share his vast experience in direct molecular testing and give a comprehensive overview of available solutions and their applications.

Key Objectives:

§  Limitations of conventional culture methods

§  Advantages, disadvantages and applications of specific PCR, multiplex PCR and universal broad-range PCR assays

§  Factors influencing the performance of direct molecular testing

§  Aspects that favour direct testing

§  Diagnostic value and clinical impact of broad-range 16S/18S rRNA gene PCR and sequencing

There will be a live Q&A at the end of the presentation.
