CLIA 2024: Are You Worried or Are You Ready?

Wednesday, July 31
7:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.
Location: Hyatt Regency McCormick Place
Room: Hyde Park
Sponsored by Beckman Coulter Diagnostics 


With the July 2024 changes to CLIA Proficiency Training (PT) goals, laboratories face an unprecedented challenge. PT expenses and failures will go up, but this pain will not be felt equally across methods, instruments, and laboratories. Necessarily, some instruments and methods will need more stringent quality control (QC). Before the failures impact laboratory operations, it’s critical to assess the ability of methods to pass the new PT QC and to implement optimal QC.
