Chemical Pathology investigates biochemical changes in blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluid.

The SydPath department of chemical pathology provides a comprehensive testing service with a focus on rapid result availability, analytical quality and interpretive support.

The department has invested in track automation systems to provide results of over 70 common tests within two hours from sample arrival in the laboratory.

The techniques and technologies used at SydPath have been selected for precision, accuracy and freedom from interferences.

The department provides consultation services through the Chemical Pathologist for advice on appropriate testing and interpretation of results. The department is also active in both internal and external research projects.

The department provides testing for:

  • Routine electrolytes
  • Kidney and liver function
  • Enzymes
  • Lipids
  • Blood gases
  • Metabolites
  • Therapeutic drug monitoring
