09/17/2021

Dr. Katherina Psarra, eNews Editor, opens this June issue with the following words: "Was it really such an unbearable summer with Delta, fires, heat wave–as Dr. Gouget explains in his very interesting article in this issue? It is true that for the first time all these consequences of the climate crisis, in addition to the Delta variant, were present at the same time in many places around the world. We all witnessed this unprecedented summer. But at the same time, thanks to the vaccines, we had the chance to enjoy some moments of real holidays, the countryside, the sun, the sea, meeting with friends (not big gatherings, of course)–to enjoy peaceful moments. Within the IFCC there is a lot to anticipate during the coming months. The Townhalls, the new meetings, where our voices can be heard, are explained and presented by our president in this issue. We are all looking forward to Euromedlab in Munich at the end of November and we hope to attend in person after a period of “untouchable” meetings. In this issue, additional advocates of the UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Program are presented. It is really unimaginable not to praise this effort by UNIVANTS. ... Let’s hope that we will have a peaceful fall and winter waiting for us". Read the IFCC eNews and find a lot of interesting information!

2021 07 01 IFCC Handbook 2021 - 2023

07/05/2021

The International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) is a worldwide, non-political organisation for clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine. As such, it has a range of roles that include (1) global standard-setting in collaboration with other international organisations, (2) supporting its members through scientific and educational endeavours, and (3) providing a series of congresses, conferences, and focused meetings for laboratory medicine specialists to meet and present original findings and best practice. The IFCC relies very heavily on volunteers to run the organisation and to undertake its range of activities and programmes. Those volunteers are constantly changing and so a reference document is required to assist people who want to learn more about the IFCC and its operation. That reference document is this IFCC Handbook. The production of the IFCC Handbook occurs once every three years to coincide with the term of each Executive Board. However, IFCC is a dynamic organisation that evolves constantly. The most up-to-date information about the IFCC is always available from the IFCC website (www.ifcc.org).

2021 06 28 eJIFCC Vol 32 n° 2

06/29/2021

eJIFCC Vol 32 n° 2 is now available! In this issue: POCT – making the point. Guest Editor is Prof. Sergio Bernardini Point of care testing (POCT) represents an important step forward in the clinical management of patients. POC assays are easy to use and do not require skilled personnel, thus they are particularly useful in low-resource settings (where diagnostics laboratories equipped with complex instruments and well-trained technicians are not available), as well as in the Proximity Medicine networks working in synergy with central laboratories. Furthermore, results are delivered in real-time, accelerating the decisional process behind the clinical decision as in the Emergency setting. A prompt diagnosis is also crucial in the case of contagious diseases allowing rapid isolation of the infected patient and treatment. The present special issue is, in some way, evidence of our resilience in this very engaging time where Laboratory Medicine has demonstrated again its great value for patient care. This special issue includes a series of papers reflecting the topics planned for the “POCT: making the point” conference to be held between September 6 and 7, 2021 in Rome, Italy. The issue is completed with seven other articles, four of them on COVID-19 related topics.

Dr. Katherina Psarra, eNews Editor, says: "COVID-19 is here again at the beginning of my editorial but this time for a different reason. The IFCC Virtual Conference on COVID-19 was really successful and gave us pride and hope. Prof Adeli is presenting a summary of this success in his introductory message. In this issue, we have the opportunity to learn about the actions taken by the new IFCC Task Forces on Newborn Screening and for Corporate Members, the IFCC Working Group on Artificial Intelligence and Genomic Diagnostics. We also have a very interesting report of the survey about the IFCC webinars Live Series Fall 2020. Unfortunately, there is again an obituary, a farewell to a well-known Swedish Clinical Chemist, Prof. Nils Trydin. You will see there an incredible, beautiful photo. What makes us, the IFCC people, proud is that when we are reminded of the lives of the late IFCC officers, we take a glimpse of some really rich and wonderful lives. All these people are characterized by huge work in the field of Laboratory Medicine, but at the same time, they are full of surprises. They are scholars in many other areas; they are open to knowledge, art, and life. The group work, the collaboration are again celebrated in the Univants awards. Finally, don’t forget to read about the conferences, webinars from all over the world. Reports and descriptions are coming again. They may be virtual, but they obviously offer a lot to a lot more people. With the hope of meeting you in person soon...
