ASM Launches new Laboratory Capacity Building Program Website

In resource-limited countries, a lack of training, proper reagents, supplies, and equipment has impacted their laboratories' ability to identify key pathogenic bacteria and detection of antimicrobial resistance. This has led to an environment of syndromic diagnosis by clinicians who have little confidence in the accuracy and quality of laboratory test results. The ASM LabCap Program is addressing this issue by strengthening and expanding clinical microbiology services in these regions, primarily through the training of laboratory staff. The program began in 2005.
