. . . the final volume in a three-volume series focusing on the three phases of laboratory testing --- preanalytical (Volume 1), analytical (Volume 2), and postanalytical (Volume 3). With leading experts in their specialty areas as contributing authors, this series is truly one of a kind and the first to consider the entire testing process under one publication series.

This three-volume series is designed to provide the laboratory community with the latest information on advances and developments in the handling of specimens prior to testing, in workstation consolidation, and in new methodologies and analytical systems as well as the expansion of point-of-care testing and the explosion of information technology. It presents the challenges and innovations that should be expected as the technology and our healthcare delivery systems evolve.

  • Volume 1 provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of healthcare and its impact on diagnostic services, the evolution of technology and testing services, workflow analysis, critical pathways and specimen processing, preanalytical laboratory information systems, and preanalytical instrumentation.
  • Volume 2 focuses on the use of technology, quality, and basic principles of instrumentation. Techniques and automated systems of all laboratory testing areas will be presented, including total laboratory automation and point of care
  • Volume 3 addresses quality assurance and quality control issues, verification and reporting of results, postanalytical laboratory information systems and telemedicine, biosensors, the virtual clinical laboratory and artificial intelligence, and clinical laboratories in the 21st century.
