This is a recorded version of an AACC live webinar that was held March 11, 2015. Viral load testing now plays an integral role in the diagnosis and management of patients with viral infections, including HIV-1, hepatitis C virus, cytomegalovirus, and others. Over the last two decades, there have been substantial improvements in the methods used to quantify viral nucleic acids, and the medical community now has a greater understanding of how to use viral load measurements in patient management. However, challenges remain for viral load testing related to accuracy, precision, and standardization, and researchers continue to look for new ways to use viral load testing to improve patient care.

During this 60-minute webinar, Dr. Frederick S. Nolte provides an update on current challenges in viral load testing, and discusses new technologies that may help labs address some of these issues. You will also learn what?s new in how viral load testing is being used clinically, and what the future may hold for this exciting technology related to its use in the diagnosis and management of patients.

A Q&A session from the live webinar is also included on the recording.
