About the Conference
AACC will hold its third AACC Preanalytical Phase conference October 20 - 21, 2023, a 1.5-day educational conference, focusing on the preanalytical phase of laboratory processes with an emphasis on putting tools into practice to mitigate errors, reduce turnaround time, increase specimen quality, and improve patient care. Building on the success of previous preanalytical phase conferences, the program will be developed by renowned experts and provide timely education on the latest preanalytical phase topics in an engaging and interactive forum including poster sessions, networking events, and a sponsor-led educational symposium.

All presented posters will be published in AACC’s online peer-reviewed publication The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine (JALM). Visit the Poster Abstracts page for guidelines, the abstract template, and the online submission form.
