Medical laboratories are struggling to acquire quality lab equipment which is both ‘’expensive’’ and ‘’rare.’’  Head of the Medical Council Alireza Zali, quoted by ISNA, said some laboratories are even on the brink of bankruptcy due to stagnating lab tariffs over the last couple of years. Zali added that the subsidy reform plan had also taken its toll on the finances of clinical laboratories.  He said efforts are underway to mark a day in the calendar to honor the work done by medical lab scientists and technicians.
