A huge thank you to my superstar UHN/MSH Microbiology team testing COVID-19 sample volumes that are doubling to tripling daily; validating new methods with new matrix’s on the fly in response to the shortages of the day. TAT is still less than 24 hours and the team is still smiling and bracing for weeks to come; and the routine work is still on point in spite of the hourly adjustments we are making! We can do this! #msh #staysafe
Medical Laboratory Week is April 11-April 17, 2021!
Medical Laboratory Technologists (MLTs) and Medical Laboratory Assistant/Technicians (MLA/Ts) serve a crucial role in healthcare, conducting approximately 244.8 million lab tests annually for Ontario’s population of 14.75 million. Although the pandemic this past year has added 11+ million PCR tests, Medical Laboratory Professionals do way more than COVID-19 testing.
