Threats from infectious diseases are constant and necessitate continual assay development. The Microbiology Community provides the latest news and information in infectious disease testing, from COVID-19 to emerging infectious diseases, as well as longtime threats such as respiratory viruses and sexually transmitted infections and diseases.
This market segment is one of the most active in lab medicine, as molecular diagnostics provide accuracy and clarity in guiding treatment decisions for better patient outcomes. The Molecular Diagnostics Community covers fast-moving developments in molecular technologies including polymerase chain reaction (PCR), in situ hybridization (ISH), and others.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is essential to clinical practice, and this community reports on new NGS products, assays, company developments, and trends in the clinical sequencing space. Products of test makers and sample prep suppliers are also tracked, as well as developments in liquid biopsy.
Point of Care
Lab medicine continues to move closer to the patient, and this community covers the rapidly growing segment for point-of-care (POC) lab tests and how they are changing clinical practice. Other coverage includes developments at POC vendors, the latest clinical studies and new product launches, and other breaking news related to POC test systems and supplies.
