The UCLA Clinical Laboratory offers a comprehensive range of chemistry-based testing for diagnostic, prognostic, and disease monitoring purposes. The most common automated tests are performed in each of the affiliated hospitals, with a rigorous standardization and quality control program to assure comparability of results. Other testing is performed at the Westwood location. For stat and high throughput testing, we have implemented a fully automated system for sample processing and analysis for improved turn around times and reduced errors. Consultative/interpretive reports by faculty are provided for thyroid function screening cascade, monoclonal gammopathy analyses (protein electrophoresis), and hemoglobinopathy screening.
