are analyzed using on selective electrode machines. Manual methodology
for rare, backup and specialized determination using the best available
quality controlled kits. A special biochemistry area is responsible for
protein electrophoresis glycosylated hemoglobin and various
miscellaneous, specialized tests.
Fully automated 5-part differential analyzers are used. A wide range of
hemostasis studies, using fully automated analyzer is available for the
diagnosis and follow -up of patients with bleeding and thrombotic

- Additionally, samples are split and determinants of both splits are compared.
- Random samples are chosen by the director and repeated measurements of the
determinant are carried out the next day when the results are compared.
- Genetics and molecular biology: Highly equipped department with all needed facilities.
