Physicians Use Fitness Trackers to Monitor Patients in Real-time, Even as Developers Work to Incorporate Medical Laboratory Tests into the Devices

Pathologists and clinical laboratory managers can expect that physicians will want to incorporate digital remote patient monitoring into their clinical practices Swift advances in technology devoted to fitness-tracking devices used by consumers are creating opportunities for physicians to tap that data to remotely monitor their patients. These pioneering efforts show how even medical laboratory testing functions might eventually be incorporated in these fitness tracking products. Of course,...

Rapid Progress in Systems Biology Predicted to Increase Multiplex Testing by Clinical Pathology Laboratories

Trend from reductionism to holistic biomedicine means clinical laboratories and pathologists should expect increased multiplex testing Systems biology (SB) is a rapidly-evolving area of research that, by itself, could greatly expand the need for multiplex testing performed by clinical laboratories. But systems biology has yet to catch the full attention of either the media or Wall Street. That may soon change. Despite the complexity of human metabolic systems, experts in systems biology are...
