Laboratory medicine is a discipline with numerous connections to other medical disciplines: it provides a number of diagnostic indications for diseases from almost all areas of medicine: valuable information for further medical measures is sent to fellow doctors, from normal blood counts to immunological analyses.
The rapid processing of obtained samples is important for analyses from the metabolic department, particularly in hormonal diagnosis. Only thus can high quality be ensured.
