This Course is considered advanced.

 

If this area of the laboratory is new to you, Molecular Diagnostics: Fundamentals, Methods, and Clinical Applications is a great place to start. The book is readable and understandable and it will clarify the molecular pathology principles that have become an integral part of current laboratory testing.

The primary audience for this text is students enrolled in Clinical/Medical Laboratory Science programs at all levels. It explains the principles of molecular technology that are used for diagnostic purposes. Examples of applications of molecular-based assays are included along with case studies that illustrate the use and interpretation of these assays in patient care. Practitioners who are performing and interpreting these assays can use this text as a resource for reference and troubleshooting and to drive the implementation of additional molecular-based assays in their laboratories.

This course is divided into three sections, each worth 12 contact hours.
