Molecular O&P – A Streamlined Workflow for Ova and Parasite Testing and Patient Management

This webinar is the second of a three-part series on Advances in Gastrointestinal Protozoa Testing.

The first webinar gave a broad overview of the key parasites causing gastrointestinal disease, traditional diagnostic methods used to detect ova and protozoa, and the benefits of employing a molecular approach.

In this second live webinar, two leading experts in medical diagnostics, Lynne Garcia and Damien Stark, further discuss the advantages of the molecular detection of gastrointestinal parasites and provide an overview of the molecular diagnostic workflow for pathology laboratories. The workflow from sample to result and reporting is described, and the subsequent clinical support for improved patient management. Clinically relevant protozoan pathogens that cause significant disease and negative health outcomes are discussed including:

  • Giardia spp.
  • Cryptosporidium spp.
  • Cyclospora cayetanensis
  • Entamoeba histolytica
  • Dientamoeba fragilis 
  • Blastocystis spp.
  • Microsporidia
