2012 Convocation of Experts on Laboratory Quality

European Laboratory Quality experts gathered in Cologne, Germany in June 2012 to discuss the key issues facing the quality of clinical laboratory results, and to provide advanced ideas on how to overcome those challenges. This series of 22 speaker videos allows experienced and non-experienced laboratory professionals across the world to learn the latest thinking on critical laboratory concepts. The two day convocation was titled: Embracing the need of continued vigilance to assure quality outcomes in the modern laboratory. This symposium was hosted by Bio-Rad Laboratories.
