ACBI - About us

The Association of Clinical Biochemists in Ireland (ACBI) is the national society for Clinical Biochemistry in the Republic of Ireland.

The ACBI is a member society of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry (IFCC) and of the IFCC’s "geographical" sub-groups FESCC (Forum of European Societies of Clinical Chemistry) and EC4 (European Communities Confederation of Clinical Chemistry).

The ACBI is a sponsoring society of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (formerly European Journal of Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Biochemistry).

The Association works closely on matters of common interest with its sister organizations the Academy of Medical Laboratory Science and the Faculty of Pathology of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland through joint committees such as the Steering Committee of the Irish External Quality Assessment Scheme (Laboratory Medicine), and the Joint Working Group on Accreditation of Irish Clinical Laboratories.
