Whitepaper: Managing Workflow in the Histology Laboratory
Author: Clifford M. Chapman MS, HTL (ASCP) QIHC
There is an inextricable relationship between equipment, supplies and the workflow metrics of a histology lab. Learn how a lab’s workflow can suffer as a result of failures in either equipment or when consumables run out, such as less time on improving more complex processes, less time focusing on quality over production or cultivating the team. Learn the various areas a laboratory can address to prevent and recover from equipment failures or shortages of consumables.
