AUSTIN, Texas (July 30, 2020) – As the COVID-19 pandemic has swept across the world, medical laboratories of all types have been working around the clock to get testing up and running. Some labs, such as those which are hospital-based and academic medical center-affiliated, have fortunately had access to more resources and infrastructure as they scale up for testing volume.

“Not all laboratories have been able to ramp up as quickly,” stated Robert L Michel, Editor-In-Chief of The Dark Report. “On July 22, Dark Daily hosted a free webinar “Start and Scale COVID-19 Testing with Essential Tools that Support the Business and Workflow of Your Lab,” to help labs navigate these uncharted times,” continued Michel.

Listen to this FREE webinar on demand, sponsored by Sunquest Information Systems, and learn directly from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health – Public Health Laboratories about how they have rapidly and effectively implemented COVID-19 testing, while integrating order capture and results delivery to support their physician customers and community.

Green, PhD, D(ABMM), Director, and Ashutosh Ruparella, MT(ASCP), CLS, Information Technology Manager I, both with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health – Public Health Laboratories; and Raquel Giffard, MB (ASCP)CM, Clinical Consultant with Sunquest Information Systems. The webinar is moderated by Kiran Ganda, Director of Product Marketing with Sunquest.
