The last week of April is a time of recognition for the nation’s medical laboratory professionals who play a crucial role in delivering health care. Clinical laboratory testing plays a critical role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.

Nationally, approximately 270,000 medical laboratory professionals and 15,000 board certified pathologists provide a vital link in effective health care.

Today, from the person who is collecting the patient’s blood, to the person who analyzes the specimen and produces the report, the clinical laboratory is a key element of the health care team.
