Pathology and Laboratory

This is a full service laboratory operating 24/7 to provide quality test results to meet our patient’s needs. We are the first College of American Pathologists Accredited Laboratory in the UAE since 2001. “The goal of the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is to improve the quality of clinical laboratory services through voluntary participation, professional peer review, education, and compliance with established performance standards. The laboratory is awarded CAP accreditation and operates within an exclusive group of more than 6,000 laboratories worldwide that have met the highest standards of excellence.”

The laboratory is headed by American Board Certified Pathologists with subspecialties in hematopathology and dermatopathology. The pathology/cytology service includes tissue and frozen sections; immuno and special stains; fine needle aspirates; and pap smears including liquid based cytology.

Using the latest equipment and technologies, operated by skilled technologists we generate over a quarter of a million test results each year. Our services encompass biochemistry, hematology, transfusion medicine, microbiology, histology, and cytology. Tests not handled in house are outsourced to accredited laboratories in Europe and the United States.

Testing is not limited to American Hospital Dubai patients, as we provide services for external clinics and laboratories; and community based and overseas physicians. With a physicians requisition we will process your test requests and forward the results to your clinician.
