What is THE DARK REPORT Laboratory Intelligence Service and why do you need it?

The Dark Report is a periodic intelligence report founded in 1995 by R. Lewis Dark, publisher emeritus. The publication reports news about the latest facts and trends and key analysis (not just news like other sources) that affect medical laboratories of all kinds. The Dark Group, Inc., and The Dark Report Intelligence Service provide intelligence and strategic market analysis exclusive to CEOs, CFOs, COOs, pathologists, senior laboratory executives, and investment professionals.

This two-day event, now in its 20th year of success, attracts laboratory administrators from as far away as South Africa, Germany, New Zealand, China, India, and Columbia, who all seek to learn the latest successful innovations in laboratory management.

    Every February, The Dark Report, Inc. co-hosts a conference in London called Frontiers in Laboratory Medicine (FiLM). Please visit the website for more information and archives from past years.

    Near the end of every September or October, The Dark Report, Inc. hosts Lab Quality Confab an annual gathering dedicated to advancing the knowledge, skills, and effectiveness of quality management practitioners in diagnostic medicine. Programs, information, and training are designed for every level of manager and all levels of knowledge and experience. Diagnostic medicine, particularly the services of clinical laboratory, pathology, imaging, and radiology, make up the primary emphasis of the Lab Quality Confab Process Improvement Institute. Our agenda includes two full days, and over 50 sessions devoted exclusively to quality management techniques! Please visit the website for more information.
