Characteristics:

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).
