I also use it whenever an esoteric test
is requested in conjunction with a disease state for which I was unaware that an association existed.
All laboratory service categories except for esoteric test
turnaround time had median percentage values of excellent/ good ratings between 75.0% and 89.9%.
To capitalize on the successful Academic Associate concept, we made a decision to broaden our product offering beyond endocrinology to include a broad esoteric test
offering to give our hospital clients the opportunity to consolidate their test send outs.
The clinical reference laboratory services market analysis considers sales clinical chemistry, human and tumor genetics, medical biology and cytology, and esoteric tests
. The analysis also considers the sales of clinical reference laboratory services in Asia, Europe, North America, and RoW.
Using this data and benchmarks, laboratories can develop strategies, and measures can be taken to limit obsolete tests, limit esoteric tests
, and minimize bundles of tests.
Based on clinical laboratory test types, the clinical laboratory services market is categorized as medical microbiology and cytology laboratory tests, clinical chemistry laboratory tests, human and tumor genetics tests, and other esoteric tests
They cite only specific tests that require blood to be chilled after collection in order to maintain the stability of the analyte, including acetone, ammonia, and lactic acid, among other esoteric tests
. In fact, some testing requires the samples to be maintained in a refrigerated state during the collection and/or centrifugation due to the volatility and instability of the analyte.
The clinical diagnostic tests performed by laboratories can be broadly classified into four major categories, namely, clinical chemistry, medical microbiology & cytology, human and tumor genetics and other esoteric tests
. Ranging from routine blood and urine tests to high-end genetic analysis including fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), molecular expression testing, etc., clinical laboratories offer numerous tests that help detect disease progression and abnormalities.
