No, managing a commercial laboratory didn’t get complicated just when the pandemic started. It was complex all along, even if COVID-19 has not helped.
For lab managers, level of complexity is determined by regulation, the types of testing the lab performs, and the ancillary responsibilities associated with primary functions. Remove some of these ancillary tasks and the level of complexity eases up a bit.
