|Associated Clinical Laboratories (ACL) is
a regional reference
laboratory serving Northwest Pennsylvania, Chautauqua County, New York and
Ashtabula County, Ohio. Formed in 1986, the laboratory is a regional asset and resource for
physicians and patients living and working in the service area.
As a local laboratory, the medical directors, technical staff and administrative staff are readily available to both physicians
and patients should questions arise regarding ACL's services. Members of Pathology Associates of Erie serve as the Medical
Directors of both the hospital laboratories and ACL. This oversight ensures that the laboratories focus on meeting the service needs
of physicians and patients in our community. ACL also employs two Ph.D. level scientists who provide oversight to the technical areas
of the laboratory.
The partnership of the local medical community with Quest Diagnostics Incorporated enables local access to the expertise of the nation's largest reference laboratory. Testing not performed at ACL is referenced into the Quest facilities in Pittsburgh, PA, and the Quest Diagnostics Nichols Institute esoteric testing facilities in Chantilly, VA, and San Juan Capistrano, CA. ACL performs approximately 95% of all testing in the Erie facility.
