Department of Clinical Chemistry


The Department of Clinical Chemistry performs basic and specialized biochemical tests of human biological materials (223 methods, 70 available in stat format) for all the of hospital´s departments, clinics, outpatient departments, and some external health-care facilities. The department is certified according to ISO 9001:2008 and by the National Center for Authorization of Clinical Laboratories (Národní autorizační středisko klinických laboratoří, or NASKL in Czech). It is an integral part of a system of external quality assessment and proficiency testing run by SEKK (Czech authority – Systém externí kontroly kvality in Czech), Instand, and DGKL (international authorities). The laboratory also performs some tests paid on the spot.
