Actualités dans le diagnostic du paludisme d’importation : Illumigene Malaria lève le doute!
Docteur Pierre Hance: Médecin biologiste Labosud Provence Biologie, spécialiste des Hôpitaux des Armées, Diplômé de l'Institut Pasteur. Cette conférence reviendra sur les différentes techniques de diagnostic du paludisme et sur l’intérêt d’utiliser la biologie moléculaire pour la détection d’espèces du genre Plasmodium.

Clinical Study Experience with illumigene® HSV 1&2
Belinda Yen-Lieberman, Ph.D. and Donna Mayne, B.S. MT (ASCP), CLS (NCA) will discuss the performance of a loop-meditated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay (illumigene reg; HSV 1&2) for the diagnosis of HSV 1&2 compared with that of ELVIS in mucocutaneous and cutaneous swab specimens. The recently FDS-cleared illumigene HSV 1&2 assay provides highly sensitive and specific results in less than pne hour to reduce turnaround time and eliminate the need for send-outs and viral culture.
