News on issues related to managing clinical laboratories.

MicroGen Dx's Texas-based lab is the only commercial laboratory in the US offering sputum testing for SARS-CoV-2.

This week Quest Diagnostics said it saw declines of more than 40 percent while other industry observers reported drops of as much as 90 percent for some labs.

The firm believes that its molecular assay for the laboratory will help ease some of the supply chain issues hampering test rollout during the pandemic.

In a letter, the Trump administration has asked hospitals to report their SARS-CoV-2 testing data every day to HHS.

If the bill passes in its current form, PAMA reporting would be delayed until January 2022 and rate cuts scheduled for 2021 would be put off to 2022.
