Additionally, all voters are entered into a prize drawing for the chance to win a $500/£400/450€ Amazon® Gift Card.

The winning products will be recognized as having significantly contributed towards clinical laboratory efforts and improved healthcare in the past year and will be announced at a special party during the 2019 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Anaheim, CA, USA, August 3 – 8, 2019.
