Clinical laboratory

3rd floor, rooms 309-316

The key activity of the staff of the clinical laboratory is to carry out laboratory tests with a view to diagnosing diseases, assessing the severity of diseases, making prognosis and evaluating effectiveness of prescribed treatment.

The staff of the clinical laboratory includes highly-qualified laboratory specialists and technicians: 1 2nd qualification category laboratory specialist, 7 1st qualification category laboratory assistants and 3 2nd qualification category laboratory assistants. Yuliya N. Belous is the Chief of the laboratory.

Working hours

The clinical laboratory works in two shifts. On working days, it works from 7.00AM to 8.00PM, on Saturdays from 9.00AM to 3.00PM.

To have a complete blood count or a blood glucose test, please, visit room 310 or 316 from 7.10AM to 11.00AM on working days.

To have a glucose tolerance test, please visit room 310 from 7.10AM to 11.00AM on working days. You should also take a 75.0 g of glucose, water, a cup and a spoon with you.

To have a urine test (urinalysis, Nechiporenko or Zimnitsky urine test), a stool test (test for parasite or helminth eggs in feces or a stool test) or a sputum examination, please visit room 315 from 7.10AM to 11.00AM on working days.

To have an AFB test, please, visit room 315 from 7.10AM to 11.00AM on working days.

You may also have a complete blood count from 4.00PM to 6.00PM on working days. We do not collect blood for blood glucose testing in the 2nd shift.

If a patient has a referral and medical indications, the specialists of the laboratory may carry out an emergency blood or urine test during the working day.

To have a complete blood count or urinalysis on Saturday, please, visit room 309 from 9.00AM to 11.00AM. Blood glucose tests are carried out only in case of immediate indications. Other tests are not carried out on Saturdays.

House calls are made on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, or daily, if required, in accordance with the applications from attending physicians.
