Chemical Pathology


Chemical Pathology

Chemical pathology is the study of the chemical composition of body fluids in disease. Tests are performed on many kinds of body fluid, but mostly on your serum or urine. In many diseases there are significant changes such as the raised blood enzymes due to their release from heart muscles after a heart attack, or raised blood sugar in diabetes mellitus

The LHD test menu for Chemical Pathology has been designed to detect these changes rapidly to optimise the care given to each patient. LHD is proud to host highly automated testing systems capable of producing thousands of results per hour. All the assays are closely monitored and quality controlled.
