Online Webinar 2019 - Live Webinar 60 minutes Laboratory Developed Tests: Challenges and Opportunities



VenueOnine, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

Laboratory Developed Tests have long been popular tests to perform in clinical diagnostics. These tests can offer unique insights not available using standard diagnostic kits and can offer patients opportunities to improve their health. Historically, the US FDA has used regulatory discretion to not regulate the use of these tests so long as they were performed by qualified personnel. However, changes in both technology and the business of laboratory developed tests have changed the FDA’s perspective with these tests and the regulatory approach therein.
With this webinar, you will learn what the FDA is asking for with regard to these new regulations, and how they can be integrated into your laboratory’s regulatory validation. While compliance can be simple for a wide variety of LDTs, others will require a variety of changes. This webinar seeks to help you navigate these changes in order to roll out and maintain laboratory developed tests.
Objectives Of the Session
1) What is the legal definition of a laboratory developed test?
2) How will FDA regulations around these tests change?
3) How will validation of these tests change?
4) What is needed for a successful validation of a LDT under the new regime?
5) What concerns need to be addressed as a part of test development?
6) How can you turn compliance into a key asset for your test?
