AMP COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall


On Thursday, June 11, 2020 at 1:00 PM Eastern, the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) held a virtual town hall on diagnostic testing for COVID-19. AMP presented key preliminary findings from a recent COVID-19 survey of laboratories. This webinar discusses various aspects of COVID-19 molecular diagnostic testing including:

  • Current and anticipated testing capacity
  • Testing turn-around times
  • Supply chain issues 
  • Test performance and validation
  • Processes for United States (US) public health reporting

Initial data presented was gathered from over 100 US-based laboratories including academic medical centers, commercial reference laboratories, and community hospitals or health system laboratories. Additionally, the webinar includes timely policy recommendations based on the survey’s findings, which aim to effectively leverage America’s large and diverse laboratory network to best respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
