LC-MS/MS in the clinical laboratory: Current challenges & future perspectives for expansion in routine workflow

Tuesday October 27, 2020 | 12:00 - 13:00 ET 

Sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific

LC-MS/MS is recognized as Gold Standard technology for many applications in the clinical lab. However, based on traditional approaches, it can be difficult to implement and manage, as it needs a lot of expertise and manual intervention. The scope of this workshop is to give an overview of the current challenges with existing LC-MS/MS solutions and the needs of the clinical lab, in order to illustrate how “easy” it can be to implement a fully automated LC-MS/MS clinical analyzer for use in a 24/7 daily routine.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

1)  Understand the challenges & perspectives of LC-MS/MS implementation in the clinical laboratory
2)  Learn how to implement LC-MS/MS easily in your clinical laboratory
3)  Discover the Thermo Scientific™ Cascadion™ SM Clinical Analyzer through a daily routine experience
