COVID-19 Statement from the ACB President: Better science, better testing, better care

04/04/2020 10:14:02

The Association for Clinical Biochemistry and laboratory medicine (ACB) is a professional body dedicated to the practice and promotion of Clinical Laboratory Medicine. We promote better science, better testing and better care through our membership comprising of Clinical Scientists, Medical Practitioners, Clinical Academics, laboratory healthcare scientists and leading diagnostic companies. Never has the strap line for our organisation been more appropriate than in the current challenging environment. It is only through better understanding of the science that we can ensure better testing that delivers better care.

ACB members (NHS, Academic and Corporate) have been at the forefront of the work to diagnose and test for the presence of COVID-19 as well as the development of antibody testing to determine whether a patient has had the disease. ACB members are supporting frontline clinicians by developing and implementing novel tests to assess disease severity and help manage sick patients. 

ACB members help prevent, diagnose and treat illness using their knowledge of science and their technical skills. During this difficult time, patient safety and the provision of tests that give consistent, high quality results are at the forethought of all our members.  

Professor Neil Anderson
President, Association of Clinical Biochemistry and laboratory medicine
