29 April 2020 (Wednesday) - Top Prize?


Having worked in pathology seemingly forever I’ve seen some changes (doesn’t that make me sound old!!) Some for the better, some for the worse. But in this morning’s email from “The Scientist there is a worrying development.
In the past the departmental equipment has been bought by a fully documented procurement process. It might seem long-winded and laborious, but the idea is that public money is spent widely and accountably on getting what is the best bit of kit available for the specific job that needs to be done.
But today there are blood counters being given away as prizes from on-line competitions. The device might be really good; it might be a ple of crap... Who knows?
But is this any way to equip a laboratory?
