Webinar Description: 

Sponsored by bioMérieux.

Joint Infections, including septic arthritis and prosthetic joint infections, can be difficult to diagnose. A delay in treatment can result in permanent morbidity or even mortality. In this webinar, Stephen Vella, PhD, will discuss the challenges of current diagnostics of joint infections and how a new FDA-cleared syndromic PCR panel can guide the diagnosis and treatment of both septic arthritis and prosthetic joint infections. Dr. Vella will review the considerations for use in current diagnostic algorithms, followed by an overview of recent clinical publications. He will share expert recommendations on using the panel to potentially positively impact patient management.
