Learn, Grow, and Connect with CLSI at ADLM 2024!


CLSI will be participating in the Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine (ADLM) 2024 Annual Meeting and Expo in Chicago, IL from 28 July through 01 August. We’ll be at booth 3468 in the expo center to answer questions, provide support for users and members, and showcase new standards and products, including CLSI’s new Method Navigator tool.

On 31 July at 2 PM, attendees can stop by the booth to meet CLSI’s president, Dr. James Nichols. Dr. Nichols has been awarded the 2024 ADLM Award “Outstanding Contributions to Education in Clinical Chemistry.” This award is given to an individual who has dedicated a significant portion of their professional career to advancing the practice and profession of clinical chemistry through education. Dr. Nichols has been selected for this award in recognition of his remarkable and innovative contributions to education in clinical laboratory science.

Dr. Nichols will also be presenting with CLSI Board member, Dr. Lorin Bachmann, and CLSI subject matter expert, John Yundt-Pacheco, MSCS, at a workshop entitled “Embracing New Quality Specifications: Adjusting Lab Practices - CLIA 2024 and Beyond.” The workshop will cover the implications of changing quality specifications using the new CLIA 2024 Proficiency Testing (PT) limits as an example.

Nearly 100 CLSI-affiliated subject matter experts will be presenting and teaching courses at ADLM 2024. Some highlights include:

Solving Problems and Resolving Challenges in Point-of-Care Testing.” This full day, hands-on course focuses on identifying problems and challenges faced in point-of-care testing (POCT). This includes the key components of setting up a training program, administering regulatory-focused competency assessment, vendor, and program integration of quality management systems, and maintaining regulatory compliance in the face of changes. Faculty include Jeanne Mumford, BS, MLS (ASCP), of Johns Hopkins Hospital, Peggy Mann, MS, MT (ASCP), CPP, of the University of Texas Medical Branch, and Kimberly Skala, BA, MT (ASCP) and Kerstin Halverson, MS, both of Werfen.

Faculty for “Navigating Laboratory Errors in the Preanalytical, Analytical, and Postanalytical Phases of Testing” include Mark Cervinski, PhD, DABCC, FADLM, of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Alison Woodworth, PhD, DABCC, FADLM, of CTI Clinical Trials & Consulting. The course includes three modules that will cover:

  • Preanalytical Errors: Case Based Examples and Troubleshooting Tools
  • Analytical Errors and Post-Analytical Challenges in LC-MS/MS Analysis
  • Patient-Based Real-Time Quality Control: Back and Real-World Examples
