Medical laboratory

A medical laboratory or clinical laboratory is a laboratory where pathology tests are done on clinical specimens in order to obtain information for the purpose of disease diagnosis, treatment, and/or prevention. Medical laboratories vary in size and complexity.

They are located within hospitals, clinics, or exist as stand-alone laboratories. Medical laboratories are generally divided into two specialties: clinical pathology and anatomical pathology.

Clinical pathology

Clinical pathology deals with the measurement of chemical constituents of blood, urine and other bodily fluids. It is divided into many sub-specialties, including clinical biochemistry, clinical microbiology, hematology, blood banking and molecular pathology.

  • Clinical biochemistry: Most laboratories employ highly automated systems to run clinical biochemistry tests, including renal function, liver function, glucose, uric acid, lipid profile, tumor markers and many others.
  • Clinical microbiology is concerned with infectious diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses, and prion.
  • Hematology studies diseases of blood components, such as blood cells, hemoglobin, bone marrow, platelets, spleen, coagulation and others.
  • Blood bank deals with the management of donated blood for transfusion purposes.
  • Molecular pathology is a new and rapidly growing field of pathology; it focuses on the diagnosis of diseases by means of genomics and proteomics.

Anatomical pathology

Anatomical pathology studies the effect of disease on the structure of body organs, both as a whole and microscopically. There are two main sub-specialties within anatomical pathology, namely histopathology and cytopathology (cytology). Histopathology examines tissues as a whole (e.g. sections of tumor), while cytopathology examines free cells (e.g. fine-needle aspiration) or fragments of tissues. The specimens are generally stained (e.g. with dyes or antibodies) for cellular components followed by microscopic examination.
