Validating a Multiplex STI Panel With Non-Invasive Sample Types

Unleash the Potential

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) represent a unique healthcare burden in the United States with over 20 million new cases every year and an urgent need to control the spread. A multiplex PCR approach to STI testing has emerged as an economical and broader approach to routine STI and urgent STI testing.

However, a practical challenge of implementing an STI multiplex panel is validation. Learn from DarkDaily's complimentary webinar, "Validating a Multiplex STI Panel With Non-Invasive Sample Types: Unleash the Potential."

This free webinar with live Q&A focuses on adapting to and validating a single assay for four commonly requested STI tests: Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), Neisseria gonorrhea (NG), Mycoplasma genitalium (MG), and Trichomonas vaginalis (TV), using two separate PCR platforms and non-invasive sample types.


Key Learnings

  • Overview of the disease burden of sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Lessons from adapting lab operations to test for multiple targets using PCR platforms
  • Key concepts for validating a multiplex STI panel as a laboratory developed test
  • Understand the use of urine as a viable non-invasive sample type for STI testing

Who Should Attend

Lab directors, technical supervisors, and medical/microbiology laboratory supervisors 
• Coordinators and supervisors of point of care testing
• Quality system and quality assurance managers
