Pathology Technology Australia Ltd is the peak industry body representing manufacturers and importers of technologies, vital to testing patient samples in the pathology laboratory, in hospitals and in the community. This technology enables more than 500 million tests to be perform in Australia every year. With an aging population and increasing disease chronicity, pathology technology will play an increasingly important role in providing high quality, accessible and affordable healthcare services in Australia’s future.
Pathology Technology Australia collaborates with international IVD associations to share resources and set global directions for our industry.
The Know Pathology Know Healthcare campaign was started in 2013 by Pathology Awareness Australia in response to the discrepancy between the publicly perceived low value of pathology and the actual very high value of pathology to healthcare.
We believe this is the first time in the world that such diverse interests have united to promote the profession in this way.
