International Federation of Clinical Chemistry Forms Partnership With the Labs Are Vital(TM) Initiative

"Laboratory professionals guide clinicians throughout the process of diagnosis and clinical decision making, and play one of the most profound roles in care giving," Hicks added. "These professionals quietly generate sensitive, precise, and life-saving data everyday. We all depend upon a highly trained cadre of clinical lab professionals to carefully conduct an increasingly more sophisticated and delicate generation of clinical tests."
