FDA Tells Congress It Intends to Regulate LDTs! Web Conference to Provide Straight Talk on Essential Steps Clinical Laboratories and Pathology Groups Will Need to Take to Comply
Date:9/2/2014

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 31, the Food and Drug Administration sent its 60-day notice to Congress that it is moving forward to regulate laboratory-developed tests (LDTs). The clock is now ticking down the minutes until laboratories throughout the U.S. will need to comply with a host of new requirements.

Michel, Editor-In-Chief of The Dark Report. "To help labs at this critical moment, we are offering a timely and illuminating new webinar, hosted by a panel of consulting and legal veterans who are already up to speed with the FDA's draft guidance that it delivered to Congress on July 31, at the same time that it notified lawmakers that it intended to regulate LDTs. What the FDA cannot discuss about LDT regulation, our experts can, and will."

This webinar, entitled  "FDA Prepares to Regulate LDTs: What You Must Know, What Your Lab May Need to Do, and Why You Should Prepare Now" is being presented on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 1:00 PM EDT. The respected hosts of this web conference not only have their fingers on the pulse of the lab testing industry, they
