Thank You and How Can We Help?

October 2020 - Vol. 9 No. 9 - Page #1

Given the current challenges facing laboratory leadership and health care in general, we are particularly honored that you took time out of your busy schedule to participate in our annual survey of laboratory technology use, satisfaction, and acquisition trends.

Few appreciate the value of your time as much as the staff of MLM, which is why we are proud to present the fruits of your labor in filling out our State of Laboratory Technology survey. We recognize that there is no perfect laboratory operation, but we are uplifted by the collective experiences and contributions of your fellow laboratory directors and managers.

Next month, we will present our 7th Annual State of Laboratory Technology issue, which comprises the results of our survey. We will also make available a PowerPoint slide package of the results that can be used to bolster technology acquisition requests and benchmark your operations against those of your peers.

In recognition of the value of our readers’ time, we congratulate Cheryl Weisbrodt, MT(ASCP), laboratory manager at Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, FL, as the randomly selected winner of our most recent survey. Cheryl received a $450 Amazon gift card. While we cannot give prizes to everyone, we hope these good odds (1 in ~350!) encourage your continued participation in future surveys.

Foremost in our mission is to help clinical laboratorians direct and manage their operations in the best way possible. If you have questions or potential solutions, we want to hear from you! Reach out to us at any time, and to ensure your free subscription to MLM is up to date, please visit

With best regards,

David McCormick
Managing Editor
