Medical Laboratory Technology helps to diagnose, treat and prevent disease through clinical laboratory tests. It is complementary to medical science. It involves the analysis of body matter such as fluid, tissue, and blood. It also covers micro-organism screening, chemical analyses, and cell count. The professionals, medical lab technicians, and technologists play an important role in collecting information, sampling, testing, reporting and documenting medical investigations.
The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) is a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to clinical laboratory science and its application to healthcare. AACC’s leadership in education, advocacy and collaboration help lab professionals to adopt a change and do what they do best as well provide vital insight and guidance, so patients get the care they need. AACC and Al Borg Medical Laboratories have joined together to create AACC Middle East.
After the remarkable success of the 1st Middle East Laboratory and Diagnostics Congress, the 2nd Middle East Laboratory and Diagnostics Congress is back in 2019 to gather experts in the field of clinical laboratory and diagnostics and will discuss the latest advancements and international guidelines regarding key issues such as efficient lab management tools, quality indicators and guidelines, total lab automation and its impact on efficiency and patient safety, the fundamental role of effective diagnostic tools in blood banks, managing a successful Point of Care Testing Unit, and hot topics in clinical diagnostics.
The venue for the conference AACC| Middle East is Mohammed Bin Rashid University, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC). It is an urban healthcare location of choice for quality healthcare and an integrated center of excellence for clinical and wellness services, medical education and research. DHCC has close to 160 clinical partners including hospitals, outpatient medical centers and diagnostic laboratories across 150 plus specialties with licensed professionals from almost 90 countries.
The conference AACC| Middle East is a partnership between AACC and Al Borg Medical Laboratories. The 2 days conference will include emerging topics relevant to the Middle East, while the exposition will highlight the latest advances in mobile health, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, next-generation sequencing, point-of-care, and automation and will focus on the latest scientific advances in all disciplines pertinent to the field of laboratory medicine, clinical chemistry, newborn screening, genetics, oncology and emerging topics to the Middle East. Leaders in laboratory science and management from countries throughout the region including Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Cyprus, and the entire African continent will be invited to participate. Attendees will include Physicians, Allied Healthcare Professionals and Students.
The benefits of attending the conference will be to hear top international and regional experts discussing the global advances in laboratory medicine. Attendees will receive the latest updates regarding common laboratory and diagnostics tools, reviewing the best strategies for the diagnosis of diseases, earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit hours, networking, meeting and building relationships with peers in the field of laboratory and diagnostics practice to exchange knowledge are going to be the highlighted benefit and participate in practical workshops which are designed to help in overcoming the key challenges being faced in the medical professionals in the laboratory.
AACC’s strategic plan set goals for innovation, growth, and influence in five areas that is Member Community, Science & Innovation, Content & Education, Advocacy & Influence and Resources & Capacity.
AACC| Middle East is managed by CIMGlobal.
