Laboratory Medicine

Laboratory Medicine provides an extensive range of services and tests. The service supports doctors and other healthcare providers by providing timely and accurate test results of clinical specimens. It provides consultative services to assist clinicians in both diagnostic and research capabilities.

Through the recent upgrade of our analysers, we introduced clinically relevant new tests in our goal of meeting the best healthcare practices.
