Welcome to the Singapore Association of Clinical Biochemists
(SACB) website. The SACB is a long-standing professional
society with a thirty-year history in the development of
the discipline of biochemistry as applied in health and
disease. The SACB is a member of similar organizations -
the Asian and Pacific Federation of Clinical Biochemistry
(APFCB) and the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry
As President, I am grateful that the SACB is fortunate
to have dedicated, energetic, and creative council members
who have, time and again, demonstrated their willingness
to devote much precious time and effort towards keeping
the Society thriving.
The council has maintained the activities of the SACB on
a modest budget and an important credo of SACB is to provide
effective continual medical education (CME) at registration
rates which are well below average market rates.
The SACB is involved in a range of activities and what
the Society is particularly proud of is the regular 10-week
education programme which has been continued every year
because of overwhelming demand and extremely positive feedback.
We have traditionally opened our Annual Scientific/General
Meeting (ASM/AGM), at a nominal rate despite providing a
full-day’s worth of high-level scientific presentations,
good food and net-working opportunities, all in a hotel
The main reason why the SACB is able to consistently organize
our activities at affordable registration rates is because
of our corporate members, who have indeed become our trusted
partners in clinical diagnostics and in professional development
of our laboratory staff. I would like to register and acknowledge
their valuable contributions.
I thank you for visiting our site and hope that you will
have a rewarding time browsing through the contents. If
you are able, do consider joining the society and actively
participate in the activities of the SACB.
Sunil Sethi, President
