Hospital labs should not be funded like the laundry." This was the hard-hitting message from the British In Vitro Diagnostics Association's (BIVDA) conference, "Diagnostics - the best kept secret in healthcare", held last week in London. BIVDA spoke of the "huge potential benefits" of widening public access to diagnostic technology. BIVDA's calls were backed by the UK Patients' Association and the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association (EDMA).
