This unique day has been designed for Microbiology Leads to come together and share their experience. This friendly and interactive seminar will look at the impact of automation on the workforce, review cost and patient effective laboratory management strategies, explore methods to seamlessly connect IT solutions and share ideas for further cost efficiencies without impacting on your quality.
