Wilmington, CA, January 12, 2023 — CloudLIMS, a leading SaaS company offering secure, configurable, high-quality lab informatics solutions, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar titled, “Laboratory Diagnosis of Monkeypox Virus: Current and Upcoming Tests,” on January 25, 2023, at 9 AM PST (5 P.M. BST). The webinar will be presented by Martha Hernández, Scientist, CloudLIMS.com.
Monkeypox virus is an orthopox virus and causes a disease with symptoms similar to smallpox but less severe. Transmission between humans is possible. Monkeypox virus infection can be transmitted through contact with bodily fluids, internal mucosal surfaces, skin lesions in the mouth or throat, respiratory droplets, and contaminated objects. It is difficult for physicians unfamiliar with monkeypox-like illnesses to differentiate it from other viral, bacterial, or other conditions.
Nonspecific clinical presentations, lesions, and inflammation of the pharyngeal mucosa have been reported; these symptoms can be seen in other viral and non-viral infections. Therefore, accurate laboratory diagnosis of the disease while following all biosafety measures is of paramount importance to arrest the spread of infection. A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) helps streamline and automate the complete sample lifecycle in a clinical diagnostic laboratory. Furthermore, a diagnostics LIMS helps overcome all testing, reporting, regulatory, and data management challenges of laboratories while enhancing their efficiency and reducing the turnaround time.
– An overview of the monkeypox virus and its characteristics from the current outbreak.
– The latest guidelines and recommendations for testing.
– How a LIMS helps automate and streamline operations in clinical diagnostic laboratories.
