Overall Focus of this Short Course

Setting up laboratories for clinical testing using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS): Requirements, challenges and current trends in developing NGS tests for clinical applications.

NGS has evolved very rapidly and is now used for molecular testing in clinical laboratories. Many academics and industry participants are interested in setting up laboratories to perform clinical testing using this powerful technology which offers many exciting opportunities for use in clinical testing.

This Course will Cover the Following Topics

  • Landscape of NGS technology covering the rapid evolution of instrumentation platforms, protocols, and reagents
  • Differences between research and clinical laboratories
  • Requirements for setting up a CLIA-certified (and CAP-accredited) clinical laboratory for performing NGS testing
  • Challenges in validating NGS tests and current trends that are specific to CLIA laboratories
  • Examples of a few specific clinical applications will be presented

This course presents a "how-to" guide from an experienced industry participant involved in taking NGS into the clinic.

Course delegates will receive electronic copies of all slide materials presented during the course plus reference publications and reviews making this an invaluable resource for R&D presentations, business plans and investor presentations.

This course includes a light dinner and offers an excellent opportunity for scientific and technical exchange plus networking opportunities.
