HOT TOPICS Cystic Fibrosis: Breathing More Easily? Molecular advances in cystic fibrosis research paints a picture of a much more complex disorder than previously thought. This program covers the latest diagnostic testing paradigms, clinical significance and future treatments envisioned for this condition. Available until 3/13/2012 Archived Webinar • $105 Standardization of Labels on Clinical Laboratory Specimens There is a high rate of mis-identified specimens in many clinical laboratories. Until recently, there was no standard to address the lack of standard format for specimen labels. Adoption of this standard by individuals who collect and handle specimens will contribute to a reduction in mislabeled specimens ensuring higher quality of reporting and faster delivery of results. Available until 3/29/2012 APHL–CLSI Archived Webinar • $195 P V (590-932-11) Use of Software to Perform Evaluation Protocols All clinical laboratories need to use evaluation protocols, which include Linearities, Precision, Trueness, Carryover, Drift, Comparability, Reference Interval, and Limit of Detection. Software has been created that incorporates these protocols and can address the difficult and timeconsuming task that laboratorians face when performing these evaluations. The use of software ensures automatic calculations and alignment with CLSI document guidelines. Demonstration of compliance with accreditation requirements for verification and validation of clinical laboratory assays is made easy with the use of this software.

This webinar will focus on ways laboratories can implement the most recent guidelines from CLSI document C28 to validate and establish reference intervals, with an emphasis on practical approaches applicable to virtually all laboratories.

One needs to know how the curves are created to properly interpret their use. This program describes how to create ROC curves, both in terms of subject selection and organization of the data. In addition, discussion focuses on ROC plot interpretation using quantitative and qualitative measures.
