The Essence: The Best of May 2022

By Anne-Margaret Olsson posted 06-09-2022 16:04

The Artery is your community for finding solutions to your day-to-day clinical chemistry questions. Last month, several answers were found to questions ranging from "How are you classified in your institution?" to “What is your go-to literature resource for lab medicine?".  Read on for the most discussed on the Artery in May.

How Are You Classified by Your Institution?
@Amy Pyle-Eilola, PhD

From “clinical staff” to “scientists,” AACC’s Arterians have been classified in many different ways. How are you classified and how does it differ from others in your workplace? Join the discussion to see all the ways institutions refer to lab medicine professionals.

Conversion From SPE/IFE Gels to Capillary Electrophoresis
@Adil Khan, PhD

Has your lab converted to using capillary electrophoresis instead of serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) and immunofixation electrophoresis (IFE) gels? If so, let the Artery know about your experience and any important lessons learned from using capillary electrophoresis.

Required Reading and Pocket Guides for Chemical Pathology Residents
@Jack Maggiore, PhD, MT(ASCP), DABCC, FAACC

What is your go-to literature resource for lab medicine? With so many useful publications, it can get difficult to choose just one to recommend to someone who might be new to the field. Arterians provide their recommendations for required reading.
