Scope of Service

DMC University Laboratories is a regional, integrated laboratory system providing services to the DMC hospitals. In addition, DMC University Laboratories operates a full service commercial outreach program.

DMC University Laboratories provides a full menu of laboratory services “in-house” to meet the needs of an academic Medical Center. In addition to the routine testing, our test menu includes a variety of in-house specialty laboratories i.e.

  • Molecular Genetics
  • Diagnostic Cytogenetics
  • Immunogenetics (HLA)
  • Biochemical Genetics
  • Flow Cytometry
  • Molecular Microbiology
  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Cytology
  • Anatomic and Surgical Pathology

Providing these specialty laboratories in-house has resulted in less than 1% of our total billable test volumes being sent to off-site reference laboratories. We have a full staff of “local” Medical & Technical Directors who are available for consultative services to address your needs.
