Clinical diagnostic tools for microbial infections are constantly evolving and improving
Diagnosis of microbial infections requires specimen collection, sample preparation, and analysis. New methods are emerging that allow for faster, cost-effective, and more ac- curate microbial identification. Quicker diagnosis allows for fast treatment and prevents the overuse of antibiotics, which can lead to resistance. This eBook will provide an in-depth look at some of the latest methods for microbiology diagnostics including MALDI-TOF, multiplex biomarker panels, and qPCR and will address the advantages and limitations of each. It will also address how automation can be used to speed up diagnosis of microbial infections in the clinical lab.
