For many attending the recent AABB Annual Meeting in Boston, one word stuck out on a poster presentation from the Quality Assurance team in QualTex Laboratories.
“The title of our abstract jumps out – ‘turnaround’ is a huge deal in our industry,” said Robert Medina, who worked with Emmanuel Casasola and Douglas Armstrong on the study that led to the poster. “That’s one of the indicators that we look at daily. Seeing something different caught people’s attention.”
The poster, which summarized how QualTex Quality Assurance was able to dramatically reduce blood and plasma testing turnaround times, was named the best in its category at the annual convention for the blood collection and testing industry.
