The department is focused on providing laboratory tests to benefit patient care. We perform 13 million analyses per year (on >1 million patients) covering more than 500 different blood components. Analyses are requested from the hospital and from general practitioners as well as from other hospitals in Denmark. Most of the analyses are performed around the clock.

A number of highly specialised functions are assigned to the department by The Danish Health Authority, including a clinic for patients suffering from haemophilia and thrombotic diseases. We also support patient-near analyses (POCT) performed both at the hospital and by general practitioners.

The department has approximately 350 staff members (medical doctors, biochemists, biomedical laboratory scientists, nurses, secretaries, lab technicians, IT specialists and a quality manager).

The department is accredited according to ISO15189 for medical laboratories.
