104-18 Laboratory Identification of Emerging Pathogenic Molds - A Basic Course 104-18 Laboratory Identification of Emerging Pathogenic Molds - A Basic Course This basic-level, hands-on workshop on the identification of medically important molds includes both lectures and laboratory components. This workshop will cover a range of organisms commonly isolated from superficial, subcutaneous, and systemic infections of humans as well as a number of common laboratory contaminants. These organisms will include arthrospore- forming molds, aleuriosporic molds, common dermatophytes, a range of common molds that form enteroblastic and holoblastic conidia, and a range of mucoraceous molds. A short introduction to common yeast will be included. Methods for in- vitro susceptibility testing will also be discussed.2018-05-15T00:00:00Z2018-05-17T23:59:00Zhttps://www.aphl.org/courses/Documents/2017/588-104-18%20Basic%20Mycology%20Flyer_FINAL.pdf, https://www.aphl.org/courses/Documents/2017/588-104-18%20Basic%20Mycology%20Flyer_FINAL.pdf
Typing, Subtyping, and Genotyping Influenza Using the CDC Flu rRT-PCR Dx Panel Typing, Subtyping, and Genotyping Influenza Using the CDC Flu rRT-PCR Dx Panel This in-depth workshop is required for use of the CDC Flu rRT-PCR Dx Panel for influenza typing, subtyping, and genotyping. The workshop is comprised of didactic lectures and hands-on laboratory exercises covering all components of the assays. Information regarding influenza viruses, surveillance programs, how the assays fit into influenza testing and reporting algorithms, and regulatory requirements will also be provided.2018-05-22T00:00:00Z2018-05-22T23:59:00Zhttps://www.aphl.org/courses/Documents/2017/588-102-103-18%20Flu%20rRT-PCR%20Brochure_FINAL%2001082017.pdf, https://www.aphl.org/courses/Documents/2017/588-102-103-18%20Flu%20rRT-PCR%20Brochure_FINAL%2001082017.pdf
