PACE - In this month’s “Virtual Lecture,” William Morice, M.D., Ph.D., gives an overview of the national response to the need for COVID-19 testing at the onset of, and during, the pandemic.
PACE/State of CA/State of FL - This “phlebotomy webinar” will walk learners through the quality improvement methodology and describe PDSA cycle interventions that were implemented in this unit which successfully reduced the amount of canceled labs due to specimen integrity.
In this month's "Hot Topic," Matthew Binnicker, Ph.D., discusses the use of multiplex panels for the diagnosis of respiratory infections and focuses on the clinical utility of these tests in the setting of upper respiratory tract infections.
PACE/State of CA/State of FL - In this month’s “Virtual Lecture,” John Mills, Ph.D., provides information related to work that has been done in Mayo Clinic’s neuroimmunology laboratory which has played a central role in driving the field of autoimmune neurology. Over time it has driven an increase in testing volume, a number of different testing platforms, testing complexity, and a constant influx of novel laboratory-developed tests.
PACE/State of CA/State of FL - Presentation Recording Coming Soon - This “phlebotomy webinar” will provide basic information on blood compatibility, the consequences of incompatibility and the recognition of an acute hemolytic transfusion reaction.
In this month's "Hot Topic," Elitza Theel, Ph.D., will be discussing laboratory utilization management, specifically for diagnostic testing for tick-borne diseases.
In this month’s “Hot Topic,” Nancy Wengenack, Ph.D., discusses susceptibility testing of yeast for those who are considering performing it in their laboratory, perhaps for the first time, or for those who choose to send their yeast isolates out to a reference laboratory for susceptibility testing but who want to understand how the reference laboratory generates the data that comes back on reports.
PACE/State of CA/State of FL - In this "Virtual Lecture," Kevin Halling, M.D., Ph.D., discusses the evolution of clinical laboratory molecular testing over the past 40 years and the types alterations that are detected by solid tumor comprehensive genomic profiling. He also summarizes the clinical utility of solid tumor comprehensive genomic profiling.
PACE - In this month’s “Virtual Lecture,” Mrinal Patnaik, M.B.B.S. will explore the translational value of epigenomics by defining epigenetics and chromatin biology, discussing techniques and measures to assess chromatic biology with a special focus on the epigenetics development laboratory, and give examples on how to bring epigenome from the bench to the bedside.
In this month's "Hot Topic," Paul Jannetto, Ph.D., identifies how to determine new vs. residual use of marijuana in a patient, and teaches how to calculate the carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol (carboxy-THC) to creatinine ratio along with a decision ratio by demonstrating its clinical utility via case study.
In this month’s “Hot Topic,” Brad Karon, M.D., Ph.D., addresses the safe handling of laboratory specimens submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic through his yearly Phlebotomy Top Gun presentation based on the previous year’s Phlebotomy conference.
PACE/State of CA/State of FL - In this month’s “Virtual Lecture,” Eva Morava-Kozicz, M.D., Ph.D., discusses one of the most important post-translational modifications that happen in our bodies, glycosylation. More specifically, she focuses on congenital disorders of glycosylation.
