Our central laboratory is a purpose built, state-of-the-art facility containing unique design features and ultra modern equipment. It is the largest pathology laboratory in Australia.

 Our central laboratory provides:

  • 24-hour service, 365 days a year
  • A comprehensive range of routine pathology testing with rapid turnaround time
  • Urgent and emergency result services
  • A wide range of specialised tests performed in-house


Due to our resources and expertise, we are able to perform on-site, many tests which other laboratories routinely refer on to outside institutions. This improves turnaround time and also allows for a more integrated interpretation of results.

Each department is:

  • Supervised by pathologists with advanced qualifications in that sub-discipline
  • Managed by highly qualified scientists
  • Staffed by skilled, experienced laboratory scientists and technical officers who participate in on-going educational activities
  • Involved in appropriate local, national and international quality assurance programs

The individual departments within our laboratory are:

  Biochemistry               Immunoserology 
  Cytopathology               Microbiology
  Endocrinology               Molecular Biology & Genetics   
  Haematology (including Blood Bank & Flow Cytometry)               Prenatal 
  Histopathology                Toxicology
