Since its declaration as a pandemic in March 2020, COVID-19 has transformed society, particularly attitudes about clinical testing. Even with COVID-19 entering its endemic phase, due to a combination of scientific reality with falling infection numbers in first-world countries, political and economic pressure by citizens and business leaders, and plain, old-fashioned exhaustion, laboratorians and pathologists know that COVID-19 is here to stay no matter the societal pressures designed to “move beyond” the pandemic.
There is little doubt clinical laboratories will remain on the front lines of the fight against COVID. In this CLP-produced eBook you will learn:
- How serology has played and will continue to play a key role in identifying and classifying new SARS-CoV-2 mutations, allowing new tests to be developed quickly.
- How labs can help clinicians effectively meet COVID testing demands during so-called “flu season” with planning and multiplex testing options.
- How clinical laboratories will play a critical role in helping clinicians identify long or chronic COVID conditions that could plague the healthcare system for decades to come.
