The Clinical Biochemistry Section provides a broad array of routine and specialized clinical laboratory testing services for blood, urine, and other body fluids.
Specialized testing includes therapeutic drug monitoring, toxicological testing, trace metals analysis, kidney stone analysis, serum protein analyses, and other specialized chemical analysis.
Clinical Biochemistry maintains a comprehensive selection of routine, high-volume automated clinical biochemistry tests as well as a diverse menu of serological tests, endocrine/hormone analysis, tumor markers, and other testing options.
This section also operates a regional facility on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus that provides rapid blood gas and acute care testing for operating rooms and intensive care units. Additionally, the Clinical Biochemistry section is also responsible for oversight of the entire Point of Care Testing program throughout Cleveland Clinic. Point of Care Testing is defined as medical diagnostic testing that is performed outside of the clinical laboratory, but in close proximity to where the patient is receiving care.
