Our Laboratory

MDC’s clinical laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists, and is complete with new generation automated analyzers able to service more than 3000 samples per day. For safety measures and to ensure consistency of our results, all our tests are performed under Biosafety level 2 and some special procedures are even performed under Biosafety level 3 environment which is exclusive in Iraq. We provide our staff with all the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure their protection. At MDC we are committed to our community and so rely mainly on local staff, providing them with continuous training internally, locally and abroad.

Our Clinical laboratory unit is comprised of 10 departments; namely and Phlebotomy, Hematology, Clinical chemistry, Microbiology, Immunology, Molecular biology and Genetics, Metabolic disorders, Cytology, and Histopathology . Disciplines offered include: hematology, clinical chemistry, routine diagnostics, microbiology, molecular diagnostics and serology (infectious disease, autoimmune, allergy testing).
