In this short webinar, join Dr. von Mayer to learn about the recommendations from the EFLM (European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine) working group on pre‑analytical evaluation.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- Why pre-analytical focus is important to ensure quality results in your laboratory
- How to create a robust quality assurance strategy for pre‑analytical work in your laboratory
- What to do if your QC fails once your process is set up
There will also be a question and answer portion at the end of the webinar.
