The Laboratory Medicine Program's clinical biochemistry department provides routine diagnostic and specialized testing to some of the best cardiovascular, transplant and oncologic physicians and surgeons in North America.
Clinical biochemistry tests are performed at the UHN core laboratory, which is equipped with state of the art instrumentation capable of performing thousands of tests per hour. The menu includes blood gases, enzymes, immunoglobulins, electrolytes, creatinine, tumour markers, drug monitoring and panels for evaluation of specific organ function. Clinical biochemistry staff are involved in leading-edge research in the areas of tumour markers, cardiac markers, transplantation, immunology and point-of-care testing. New tests and platforms are routinely introduced to further both research and clinical trials.
Dr. Eleftherios Diamandis is our Department Head of Clinical Biochemistry.
