Laboratory medicine is indispensable in modern medical science. Laboratory medicine can present scientific data to verify or rule out a certain diagnosis, guide and monitor medical treatment. And evaluate the severity and prognosis of the disease. It is also valuable in mass screening and discovering the risk factors for early detection and treatment.
The Department of Laboratory Medicine consists of the Divisions of Biochemistry, Hematology, Serology, Microbiology, Virology, Transfusion Medicine, Stat Lab, Clinical Microscopy, Clinical Cytology, Molecular Diagnosis, Electrocardiography, and Quality Management. We are establishing a molecular laboratory with the aim to applying bioinformatics on data analysis, developing flow cytometry, promoting studies on enzyme analysis of RBC diseases and the stem cell system, correlating the relationship between HLA system and disease, and promoting researches on the pathogenesis of microbial-pathogens.
