Clinical Blood Sciences
Our hub Blood Sciences laboratory utilises the latest technology for processing chemistry, immunology, haematology and serology samples. We can perform a wide repertoire of blood, serum and urine analysis and offer one of the most extensive testing services in London. We provide analyses on vitamins, hormones, trace metals, lipids, tumour markers, drugs and poisons.
These tests provide important diagnosis for patients and can indicate whether they have diabetes, cancer, an allergy, liver damage or disease, bone and kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, or are likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
We have significant expertise in providing a fast and efficient service with the ability to deliver results electronically providing instant access to results. We can also perform multiple tests from a single sample saving time and resources.
Clinical advice for all diagnostic results is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
