About this item


How to identify and troubleshoot problematic samples using simple manipulations to achieve accurate results. Through observation of classic patterns and flagging, this presentation will explain the mechanism behind each scenario and will include case studies of the most encountered issues and a few "not-so-classic" but interesting cases, how they were discovered and what was done to resolve the issues. We will also look at and compare the final results that were eventually reported.

Course/Activity Information

At the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Identify problem samples
  • Associate classic patterns to specific conditions
  • Determine the most probable cause for the result issues or flagging
  • Decide what special handling technique of the sample will correct the spurious result
