Clinical Significance of Molecular Testing

In addition to improving turn-around time and cost effectiveness of microbiological identifications, molecular-based testing can provide a result which in many cases leads to potentially surprising diagnoses. The following histories represent cases where molecular methods were utilized to significantly affect a patient's clinical outcome.
