iDTECT Blood, a sample-to-report next-generation sequencing (NGS) solution for precision diagnostics in infectious diseases

Topic: Human Genetics & Genetic Disease : Microbiology & Infectious Disease

This webinar will provide an overview of the development, validation and clinical evaluation of PathoQuest’s iDTECT Blood. This CE IVD test represents an application of NGS-based shotgun metagenomics to the field of infectious disease diagnosis. The test provides microbiologists and clinicians a precision diagnostics tool allowing individualized antimicrobial treatment decisions in patients where current microbiological methods frequently fail to identify a responsible pathogen. Both the sample preparation and the bioinformatic pipeline have been optimized to provide high sensitivity and accuracy and an actionable report. Clinical results from a prospective study recently published in Clinical Microbiology and Infection will also be discussed.
