Biolab Participates in Roche Days Middle East Conference in Dubai
Biolab – the Kingdom’s leading diagnostic laboratory that is accredited by four international bodies – participated in the Roche Days Middle East Conference held in Dubai, UAE from 15-16 April, 2019. Hosted by Roche Diagnostics Middle East FZCO, the 2-day scientific conference brought together more than 40 speakers and 1,000 health professionals from 15 countries across the Middle East to exchange diagnostic experiences, challenges and trends across infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and oncology.
Biolab’s CEO and Founder, Dr. Amid Abdelnour moderated a session on the second day entitled “Paving the Way for Excellence in Laboratory Practice”. The session addressed three main topics on establishing high quality standards through lab accreditation, minimizing the impact of pre analytical errors in laboratory practices, and IVD perspective: supporting correct clinical classification of patients.
