Who we are
The American Clinical Laboratory Association (ACLA) is the national trade association representing leading laboratories that deliver essential diagnostic health information to patients and providers by advocating for policies that expand access to the highest quality clinical laboratory services, improve patient outcomes, and advance the next generation of personalized care.
Clinical laboratories are the driving force for the next generation of precision medicine and care delivery.
Americans depend on clinical laboratories as the first line of defense against acute, chronic and infectious disease.
Our work helps improve patient health and quality of life while reducing costs for public and private health programs.
