This laboratory is a section of the Department of Medical Biochemistry, and is headed by Professor Stuart Moat (Consultant Biochemist & Director - Wales Newborn Screening Laboratory) and managed by Rachel Hunt (Lead Biomedical Scientist).
We offer a large number of blood, urine and faecal assays, required for the diagnosis and monitoring of a wide range of disorders:
Specimens are received from several hospitals, both within Wales and around the UK. In addition to the analytical service, our staff are available to provide clinical advice on appropriate investigations and interpretation of results.
These laboratory services cannot be accessed directly by patients - a referral from a GP or specialist doctor is required (depending upon the condition involved). If you have any questions about the services available and how these can be accessed by you or your family, please contact your GP to discuss. They should also have information about the funding of these tests within your area as this varies both within and outside of the UK.
