Year of the lab 2021

2021 is the Year of the Lab - the MLPAO is building on our momentum to make sure all Ontarians know that Medical Laboratory Professionals do more than just COVID-19 testing. We have many great things planned this year to make sure you stay at the forefront of the public, government, and media.  

Keep an eye on this page for updates every week! We're profiling a section of the lab each month through Pop-Up learning, media, government relations, and a series of Did You Know videos:

  • January: Specimens

  • February: Chemistry

  • March: Hematology

  • April: Coagulation

  • May: Transfusion

  • June: Histopathology

  • July: Cytopathology

  • August: Bacteriology

  • September: Virology

  • October: Mycology/Parasitology

  • November: Genetics

  • December: Histocompatibility
