LabNotes

In response to dramatic changes in healthcare delivery systems that have come as a result of the aggressive cost-cutting measure of managed care, we have now expanded our circulation to include all categories of professionals responsible for the safety of employees who perform specimen collection and handling.

We hope LabNotes will provide information of value to aid you in your endeavor to improve efficiency and morale by the proliferation of information regarding Laboratory Science - Infectious Disease - Work Place Safety.
