2021 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo to Offer Free Onsite COVID-19 Testing

In its ongoing efforts to make the 2021 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo safe and healthy, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC; Washington, DC, USA), in association with LumiraDx (London, UK), will offer free onsite COVID-19 testing to all in-person attendees.

This year's AACC Annual Scientific Meeting, held in partnership with the Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists, will be a live event and has moved from Anaheim to Atlanta due to stringent COVID-19 lockdown requirements in California, with the meeting dates also being moved by one week to September 26-30. The latest move to offer onsite COVID-19 testing at the in-person meeting comes on top of the event’s already robust safety protocols that require all meeting participants to be vaccinated, and all meeting participants to have received a negative PCR or antigen COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arriving at the convention center.

To make the testing requirement as convenient as possible, AACC in association with LumiraDX will provide an onsite mobile testing unit outside the convention centre main doors where all in-person attendees can obtain a free COVID-19 test on a first come, first served basis. The results will take 30 minutes from sample collection. Attendees can avoid the necessity of fitting testing into their conference schedule by securing a test before leaving for Atlanta, as long as it falls within the three-day window. Additionally, the AACC will provide the attendees with COVID-19 self-test packets while they are at the conference and also as they prepare to return home, although supplies will be limited to the first 3,000 requests.
