Functions of a clinical laboratory

  1. 1. Functions of a Clinical LaboratoryAny medical trial or clinical research is incomplete without a clinical laboratory. Traditionally speaking, aclinical laboratory examines and analyses components in blood, urine and body fluids... Blood grouping& Rh typing can also be performed. The Clinical lab has the capability to perform quantitative andqualitative analyses of urine, blood and other fluids as explained below:- ● Qualitative Analysis is a test that is set up to identify the constituents of a substance or mixture. The question addressed is what is in it? ● Quantitative Analysis is a test that is set up to understand the amounts or proportion of the substance or mixture used. The question addressed here is how many or how much is in it?In the recent past, with medical activities gaining momentum in India, renowned CRO’s (clinical researchorganization) have specialized in innovative clinical laboratory services. This laboratory forms thefoundation of medical studies and research. Accreditation by third parties - NABL and CAP assures highstandards of quality and testing that are internationally acceptable.. The lab is well equipped withstate-of-the-art infrastructure and impeccable logistics. The prominent part of a clinical laboratory isthat it deploys highly experienced and trained personnel; Laboratory Information System is used foronline information transfer and ensures short turnaround time with commendable levels of quality andconsistency.Clinical laboratory services include a wide range of investigations. They are:- ● Hematology ● Coagulation ● Biochemistry ● Serology & Immunology ● Urine Analysis ● Hormonal assaysClinical laboratories owned by Indian CRO’s also help in conducting Phase I study by providing thenecessary lab support.. The study includes the following aspects:-

Hence it is essential toupgrade it from time to time with adequate resources.Read Also On: Biometrics
