Total Laboratory Automation in Clinical Microbiology
Listen now
Let’s talk about total laboratory automation in the clinical microbiology laboratory. Highly automated systems are fairly common in the clinical chemistry and hematology labs, and they are increasingly common in clinical microbiology. Here are some of the questions we’ll answer today. What does total laboratory automation look like in the clinical microbiology laboratory? Are there still manual steps required? In other words, how total is total? What are the benefits of total laboratory automation? Is it good for the lab staff, the caregivers, or, best of all, the patients? What is like to convert your lab to total laboratory automation? What kind of time and resources are needed? Guests: Dr. Carey-Ann Burnham, Dr. Erin McElvania Links mentioned: Machine Learning Takes Laboratory Automation to the Next Level by B. Ford and E.
