Top 20 clinical medical laboratories
Clinical medical laboratories are healthcare facilities that provide a wide range of laboratory procedures that help healthcare providers (HCP) diagnose, treat and manage patient health. These facilities may also be referred to as medical testing labs.
The scope of medical laboratory science includes collecting and processing specimens, performing an array of analytical procedures, quality control and reporting on test results.
How many laboratory procedures are performed each year?
