Washington, DC, September 15, 2011 The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) announces a conference, Optimizing Your Lab Automation: Lessons from the Front Line, to be held at The Flamingo, Las Vegas, NV on December 12 – 13, 2011.
Laboratory automation brings benefits to clinical laboratories through error and cost control, and improved patient outcomes. In the 13th edition of this information-packed meeting hosted by AACC, an expert faculty will outline the key indicators for laboratories to consider when evaluating the investment in time, planning, and capital. They will explain the right questions a laboratory should ask when initiating an automation project, how to minimize workarounds in the automated laboratory environment, the use of lab metrics to determine current performance and model future plans, how to navigate middleware and autoverification issues, and getting the most out of a QC program. In addition, the conference will feature case studies from leading companies that will highlight innovative automation options that are available today. A detailed program for the conference is available here .
This conference is a ‘must attend’ event for journalists reporting on this increasingly important element of the modern clinical laboratory’s operations.
