CLSI publishes guideline on genotyping and strain typing of infectious organisms

Nov. 1, 2021

The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) has published the first edition of MM24 — Molecular Methods for Genotyping and Strain Typing of Infectious Organisms.

MM24 examines the biology behind molecular genotyping and strain typing and the process of characterizing and validating typing systems. The current methods used in laboratories that perform genotyping and strain typing are described in detail specific to the genotyping and strain typing of nucleic acid in clinical testing and monitoring, particularly in bacterial, fungal, and viral diseases.

The guideline also includes information on sample preparation, standards, calibrators, reference materials, analytical and clinical verification/validation, reporting and interpreting results, and clinical utility.
