I’ve just updated our Conferences and Symposia page with some new meetings. Next week is the AACC/ASCLS annual meeting and Clinical Laboratory Expo at the convention center in Atlanta, Georgia. The ASCLS program includes coag topics “Use of the Anti-Xa Assay to Dose UFH,” Wed, 2:15 by Karen Wrona; “Serious Transfusion Reactions,” Wed, 3:30, by Dr. Marisa Marques, “The Biology of Platelet Activation and the Development of Targeted Anti-platelet Agents,” Thu, 12:45, by Dr. Lynne Williams; “Update on Aspirin and Plavix Sensitivity and Resistance Testing,” Fri, 10:15, by David McGlasson; and “Managing Hemostasis in Trauma,” Fri, 2:30, by George Fritsma. Also, Dave McGlasson and George Fritsma present a poster, “Effects of Elevated Fibrinogen, Factor VIII, von Willebrand Antigen, and Immunologic von Willebrand Factor on the INNOVANCE® PFA P2Y Cartridge,” Wed, 10:30. The poster does not appear on the preliminary program, but the abstract appears in the summer issue of Clin Lab Sci.
