Dr. Graham Tipples: How Alberta Labs are supporting the province’s response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 global pandemic has put additional pressures on all parts of the health system, including laboratory services. Teams at Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) have been working 20 hours a day, seven days a week, for the past few weeks in order to deal with a surge in demand for COVID-19-related testing, as well as manage ongoing needs for other testing. Dr. Graham Tipples —  APL’s Medical-Scientific Director at Provincial Laboratory for Public Health — answers questions about when APL started to respond to COVID-19 and what APL’s response looks like now and what it might look like in the weeks ahead.
