Innovative Testing Strategies for COVID-19 Containment

2020/12/01 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Event flyerDiagnostic vs antibody. At-home vs point-of-care collection. Sensitivity vs specificity. There is a lot to consider when testing for past or present coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection, such as when to test, how to test, and which test to use. We rely on testing to paint an accurate picture of disease prevalence, but what if there’s a better strategy than the current approach?

Join us for this live MJH Life SciencesTM COVID-19 Coalition webinar event to hear straight from the experts on their proposals for effective testing tactics. Register here.
