Clinical laboratory testing provides physicians with important information needed for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of disease. Pathologists examine blood and other body fluids using these scientific tools:
Apheresis is the process of removing disease-provoking elements from a patient's blood.
This section of the laboratory performs testing to ensure the safest possible blood transfusion.
Clinical Chemistry is the analysis of bodily fluids for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Coagulation tests determine if a person has a bleeding tendency.
This section of the laboratory studies chromosome and gene abnormalities to examine hematologic and oncologic disorders.
This specialized lab area performs analysis of cell surface markers to sub-classify leukemia and lymphoma.
Hematology analyzes the cellular elements of blood.
Immunology studies the molecular and cellular components of the immune system, including blood.
Microbiologists examine specimens for bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Point of care
Point of care testing occurs at the patient's bedside to aid in diagnosis and treatment.
Special chemistry includes immunology and molecular testing.
Stem cell therapy
Stem cell therapy is the process of collecting and processing stem cells for transplantation.
