Health care systems today face pressures like never before – such as multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO), an aging population, and the health and economic challenges these entail.

The role of the microbiology lab in meeting these challenges is critical. But this means you are continually asked to perform at a higher level while facing greater constraints – in other words, do more with less.




Given this range of pressures, how do you keep your competitive edge?
