New Cividis Colormap Could Enable Color Blind Surgical and Anatomic Pathologists to View Digital Pathology Images Normally

New dichromatic color scale developed by scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory could play a role in how slides are stained and how software color-codes digital pathology images in ways that make it easier for human eyes to recognize structures and features of interest Clinical laboratories, anatomic pathologists, and other specialized diagnostics providers play an essential role in precision medicine. Imagine, however, performing surgical pathology analysis on slides using...

Is Mass Spectrometry Ready to Challenge ELISA for Medical Laboratory Testing Applications?

New technique could speed up protein-specific diagnostic testing performed by the nation’s clinical pathology laboratories There is a growing role for mass spectrometry in clinical laboratory testing. However, the pace of adoption will depend on further technology enhancements, in tandem with new clinical applications yet to emerge from research laboratories. One such innovation was announced by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). They...

Mayo’s Clinical Laboratory Science Program Uses Lean/Six Sigma to Speed Applicant Reviews and Rolling Admissions

Lean/Six Sigma project at Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology improves the admissions review and acceptance processes for new students When it comes to the use of Lean/Six Sigma methods, Mayo Clinic’s  Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology (DLMP) has been at it for several years already. However, unlike most other clinical labs that focus Lean projects primarily to the flow of specimens through the laboratory, the Mayo Clinic DLMP has applied Lean to administrative work...
