Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have discovered a biological pathway that the novel coronavirus appears to use to hijack and exit cells as it spreads through the body.
To better understand how the novel coronavirus behaves and how it can be stopped, scientists have completed a three-dimensional map that reveals the location of every atom in an enzyme molecule critical to SARS-CoV-2 reproduction.
Medical laboratory scientists (aka, medical technologists) can be hard to find and retain under normal circumstances. During the current coronavirus pandemic, that’s becoming even more challenging. As demand for COVID-19 tests increases, clinical laboratories need more technologists and lab scientists with certifications, skills, and experience to perform these complex assays.
As cases of COVID-19 surge across the globe, the World Health Organization (WHO) emergency committee extended its Public Health Emergency of International Concern for the disease, according to a press release.
Hiring the best employees for a clinical lab benefits the lab, but also the patients, as better employees mean better quality of service.
Hospital-acquired anemia (HAA) is a condition where a patient who was not anemic at hospital admission becomes anemic during their hospital stay.
Among lab leaders, collaboration continues to be a central discussion topic. That’s why we’ve assembled this guide to the type of thinking that has been percolating—and how you can begin implementing simple tactics today. So pour yourself a cup of your favorite coffee, click through, and enjoy!
Shifts in daylight saving time have been shown to increase the risk for adverse health effects such as cardiovascular issues and injuries, according to research published in PLoS Computational Biology.
