The London Clinic has announced the details of a £4 million two-year refit and design of its in-house blood sciences pathology laboratory, based in the UK.
The pathology laboratory has been fitted out with industry gold-standard equipment including technology for the diagnosis of cancer conditions, which will enable a greater volume of accurate tests to be processed, around the clock, seven days a week.
The official opening of the pathology laboratory was held at 120 Harley Street – in partnership with QuidelOrtho, the suppliers of the new biochemistry equipment – in September.
The new pathology laboratory equipment offers clinic patients and external commercial clients greater flexibility of service and simplifies daily routines for maximum efficiency.
The clinic’s pathology laboratory specialises in the following full range of blood science services:
- Stem cell
- Histology and cytology
- Haematology – including routine haematology and blood film morphology review
- Blood transfusion
- Microbiology – including bacteriology, serology, and virology.
Reza Mirza, Head of Pathology at The London Clinic, said: “Over 80 per cent of patient treatment begins with pathology testing and the outcome will determine a patient’s treatment plan.
“The investment in our dedicated in-house pathology service means we have total confidence in meeting our clinical colleagues’ and customers’ high expectations. We understand that as a patient waiting for a diagnosis, or a medical professional who needs a speedy result to start their patient’s treatment, time is always of the essence.
“Our new path laboratory technology enables us to analyse an even larger repertoire of tests in-house. This is key to the fast turnaround of results now oncology patients can receive same-day blood results.”
