Lurking Below: NIH Study Reveals Surprising New Source of Antibiotic Resistance That Will Interest Microbiologists and Medical Laboratory Scientists

Genomic analysis of pipes and sewers leading from the National Institutes of Health Clinical Care Center in Bethesda, Md., reveals the presence of carbapenem-resistant organisms; raises concern about the presence of multi-drug-resistant bacteria previously undetected in hospital settings If hospitals and medical laboratories are battlegrounds, then microbiologists and clinical laboratory professionals are frontline soldiers in the ongoing fight against hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) and...

Innovative Research by Academic Pathologists and Clinical Laboratory Scientists Unveiled at ACLPS Conference

Researchers provide a peek at likely next-generation technologies in clinical laboratory testing Last week in Nashville, a fascinating mix of clinical laboratory scientists and pathologists came together to share some of the nation’s most progressive research anchored in diagnostic technologies and laboratory medicine. It is a side of the pathology and clinical laboratory profession that seldom gets much attention, since much of the research is of a “nuts and bolts” nature. What brought these...
