As part of the Stago EdVantage Virtual University Virtual Event, which makes educational webinars accessible to novices as well as experienced users, attendees will gain a better understanding of the background and impact of preanalytical variables of commonly performed coagulation screening tests.

Hemostasis testing quality is determined by preanalytical variables which encompass patient preparation, sample collection, handling, transportation, processing and storage. If any of the preanalytical variables are not properly adhered to, incorrect or uninterpretable results are reported resulting in possible adverse patient consequences or delays in treatment.

Dr. John Mitsios, assistant director at the Special Coagulation Laboratory at BioReference Laboratories, will be the speaker for this event.

Dr. Mitsios was recruited to BioReference Laboratories as an Assistant Director of the Special Coagulation Laboratory from a previous faculty position at Cornell University as an Assistant professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine as well as an Assistant Attending Clinical Chemist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. In his current position, Dr. Mitsios is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activities of the lab and signing out cases. The laboratory receives on average 150 – 200 patient specimens and performs roughly 1,000 tests per day. Dr. Mitsios has co-authored 19 peer-reviewed articles and 2 book chapters.

LabRoots will host the webinar April 24, 2017, commencing at 6:00 a.m. PDT. To learn more about the Stago EdVantage Virtual University Virtual Event, the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
