Unlocking the world through monitoring

by Niels Kruize, CCO, MolGen “Automation and industrialization of COVID-19 PCR-testing will facilitate an immense scale-up of the global PCR-testing capacity. It will allow for a new approach to keep society open: preventive, regular testing (twice per week), which will create green bubbles and get us ahead of the curve” – Niels Kruize, CCO, MolGen Why […]


Artificial intelligence is the key driver for digital pathology adoption

by Dr Mustafa Yousif, Dr David S. McClintock and Dr Keluo Yao Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to optimize anatomic pathology (AP) laboratory efficiency, enhance pathologists’ diagnostic skills, elevate case reimbursement and, ultimately, improve patient care. To realize this potential, AP laboratories must overcome the barriers to adopting digital pathology (DP) while DP vendors […]


Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases

Laboratory tests play an important role in the diagnosis and differentiation of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, enabling endoscopies to be avoided in many cases. By Dr Jacqueline Gosink Fecal calprotectin (FC) has in recent years become an established marker for distinguishing chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (CIBD) from functional gut disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome […]


Erythrocyte sedimentation rate: getting the most out of this test

by Peter Murphy It was first noticed that the rate of erythrocyte sedimentation changed owing to illness in the 1700s. The use of this attribute as a measure of inflammatory activity due to underlying disease was formalized into a test in the early 1900s and what has become known as the Westergren test has again […]


Better health care through mass spectrometry – better mass spectrometry through standardization

by Prof. Michael Vogeser, Dr Judy Stone and Prof. Alan Rockwood While analytical standardization and metrological traceability are well-defined terms, ‘methodological standardization’ in clinical mass spectrometry is still in a developing stage. We propose a framework that facilitates the widespread implementation of this highly complex and very powerful technology and is based on two pillars […]
