CE Accent Credit Now Available On-line at the Stanbio LaboratoryWeb Site


11/2/2012 2:43:32 PM

BOERNE, TX, November 2, 2012 – Laboratory personnel and lab directors can now earn one-half hour of Accent CE credit from the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) on-line by visiting www.stanbio.com/gobhb and clicking the Learning Center icon. A case study presentation by Dr. James H. Nichols, PhD, DABCC, FACB, entitled “The value, efficacy and efficiency of ß-Hydroxybutyrate,” recorded at the Clinical Lab Expo in July 2012, has been authorized for Accent credit and is now available for laboratory personnel to view at their convenience. Accent credits count toward important board certification and state licensure requirements.

“The case study presentation by Dr. Nichols at this year’s AACC Clinical Lab Expo effectively illustrated the use and value of testing for diabetic ketoacidosis using the enzymatic ß-Hydroxybutyrate assay,” said Gilbert A. Mejia, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Stanbio Laboratory. “Now lab personnel can learn about this better way to test for ketosis – and earn one-half credit hour at the same time – by simply viewing Dr. Nichols’ presentation on the Stanbio Laboratory web site,” Mejia added. The web presentation can be accessed 24/7 by clicking the Learning Center icon. It is available free of charge. A form to apply for the credit must be completed. An on-line link to the form can also be found in the Learning Center area of the Stanbio Laboratory web site.

Stanbio Laboratory launched its ß-Hydroxybutyrate web portal earlier this year to aggregate content related to the increasing use of its enzymatic ß-Hydroxybutyrate assay. Now, eight of the top 10 diabetes and endocrinology hospitals, as ranked by a nationally recognized news magazine, are using Stanbio ß-Hydroxybutyrate products to test for ketosis.

Founded in 1960 and headquartered in Boerne, Texas, Stanbio Laboratory manufactures and markets medical testing and diagnostic devices including clinical chemistry, pregnancy, strep A, serology, urinalysis, and point-of-care hemoglobin tests. Stanbio Laboratory’s Quality System is ISO 13485 registered and its facility operates under USFDA current GMP requirements.
