Dr. Esther Babady Discusses the Laboratory and Clinical Benefits of Rapid Blood Culture Diagnostics
Date:6/8/2017

Sepsis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. However, the ability to diagnosis sepsis is challenging and early recognition is a key component in improving outcomes. Currently, blood culture remains the gold standard for diagnosis but identification of bacterial or fungal pathogens using conventional methods is often delayed and results in the institution of empiric antimicrobial therapy. This leaves clinical microbiology laboratories with fewer options for the rapid identification of pathogens from positive blood cultures as methods vary in complexity, turn-around time to results, number of pathogens identified and costs.

This OpGen-sponsored webinar will include a discussion by Dr. Esther Babady, Director of Clinical Microbiology Operations at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, review current options for rapid pathogen identification from positive blood cultures and discuss the presenter’s experience with the use of QuickFISH BC kits and its impact on laboratory workflow and patient outcomes.

Dr. Babady received a doctorate from the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in biochemistry and molecular biology. She currently serves as the Director of Clinical Operations for the Microbiology Laboratory Service and an Associate attending in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer. Her research interests include rapid diagnosis of infections in immunocompromised hosts and the development and evaluation of the clinical utility of molecular microbiology assays.

LabRoots will host the webinar on June 15 at 10:30 a.m. PDT / 1:30 p.m. EDT. To learn more about this event, available continuing education credits or to register, please click here.
