2 Days Online Workshop on "Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) Technology for detection of HIV/HCV/HBV"
Helix BioGenesis is organizing the Live online workshop on “Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) Technology for detection of HIV/HCV/HBV” so that the participants can have an experimental and live experimental insight into fully-automated Real-Time PCR Technology, its data management software and its use in the detection of various infectious diseases like HIV/HCV/HBV at an early stage of an infection.
NAT instruments, assays and reagents have been developed using the gold standard Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) technology, a very sensitive and high-performing technology that detects DNA and RNA molecules of infectious agents such as HIV/HCV/HBV at an early stage of an infection. Easily integrated into pre- and post-analytic solutions they enable blood donor screening facilities to fully automate operations, boost throughput and achieve quicker turnaround times - leading to greater overall workflow efficiency. Combining real-time PCR technology and modular automation NAT assays provide comprehensive genotype coverage and excellent sensitivity. Together with analyzers that provide efficient workflows, they deliver fast result. In this workshop, participants will be imparted with both theoretical and hands-on training demonstration through step-by-step lectures/tutorials to the methodologies associated with the included topics.
