In this month's "Hot Topic," Anja Roden, M.D., discusses the role of PD-L1 interaction in the immune system, challenges of PD-L1 testing, and current PD-L1 companion testing in various tumor types.
PACE/State of CA/State of FL - Presentation Recording Coming Soon - 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," Rajiv Pruthi, M.B.B.S., discusses heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), approach diagnosis, and the role of the functional serotonin release assay (SRA).
This month’s “Virtual Lecture” discusses the health implications of the use of race in estimating glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), how to estimate GFR, and why it is important to continue funding and research to develop tools without the use of race.
In this month's "Hot Topic," Robin Patel, M.D., discusses how the use of multiplex tests may reduce the turnaround time for identifying the cause of bloodstream infections, and how this might impact antibiotic stewardship and patient outcomes.
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.
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 - This “phlebotomy webinar” will provide basic information on blood compatibility, the consequences of incompatibility and the recognition of an acute hemolytic transfusion reaction.
