We help our clinical colleagues to diagnose and manage disease by carrying out analysis of blood, urine and other body fluids. Biochemistry is a highly automated area and we provide a 24-hour service.

We provide a diagnostic cellular pathology service for histology and cytology including tinctorial staining, immunocytochemistry, frozen sections as well as specialist services in nerve-sparing prostatectomy and Mohs procedures.

In bacteriology we investigate clinical samples for the microbial causes of infection. In serology we analyse blood samples to detect the presence of, or immunity to, blood-borne pathogens.

We provide a wide range of allergen testing and detect antibodies found in autoimmune diseases, such as coeliac disease, rheumatic diseases and vasculitis.

We offer processing and storage services for haematopoietic progenitor cells, T-cells and bone marrow. Collections are processed for immediate transplantation or prepared for storage in liquid nitrogen for infusion at a later date.  

We provide 24-hour automated full blood counts and blood film morphology, coagulation, parasitology and haemoglobinopathy screening as well as monospot testing.  

We provide 24-hour patient-specific blood components and blood products as well as blood groups, screens for alloantibodies and processing other tests such as direct antiglobulin test (DAT) and red cell phenotyping. 

POCT is carried out at or near the site of patient care by clinical staff; typically involving blood or urine testing. Our primary goal is to deliver rapid and accurate results for the benefit of patient care.
