Clinical laboratory science is the analysis of fluids and tissues for the diagnosis, management and treatment of illness and injury. Members and attendees of AACC work in laboratories affiliated with hospitals, research institutions, academia, reference laboratories, and industry. The Clinical Chemistry industry is growing as new technologies develop the need for more laboratory testing such as hematology, infectious disease, and serology. A unique feature of the AACC Exposition is the OEM section, which is, in effect, a trade show for companies which sell their products to in vitro diagnostic manufacturers. The OEM Section includes exhibitors who sell electrical, mechanical and other components, and biological products such as antibodies and DNA research materials.
