The Department of Pathology has 4 laboratories – Clinical Pathology Laboratory, Histopathology Laboratory, Molecular Pathology Laboratory and Sleep Laboratory, performing approximately half a million tests per year.
The laboratories open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to meet all testing needs.
Our laboratory facilities and equipment are modern and comply with all industrial safety requirements. Assays for more than 350 different analytes can be performed.
In November 2011, the Molecular Pathology Division introduced Next Generation Sequencing, making the Hospital the first local private institution in Hong Kong to provide genomics-enabled clinical diagnostic service. The Clinical Microbiology Division introduced the first Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionisation Time-of-Flight (MALDI-TOF) Mass Spectrometer in Hong Kong in September 2012, which facilitates bacterial identification and treatment planning.
