Anatomical Pathology

Our anatomical pathologists examine tissue and cells taken from patients to diagnose a wide variety of diseases, including cancer.

Chemical Pathology

Our chemical pathologists analyse chemicals in our body fluids and tissues to help diagnose and manage disease. They play a unique dual role of doctor-scientist, looking at changes in human body chemistry for screening, diagnosis, prognosis and management.


Our haematologists help diagnose and treat blood diseases and cancers.


Our microbiologists and virologists are critical to NSW public health and emergency responses to pathogen-borne disease, and their expertise is recognised world-wide.

Pre and Post-Analytical

This is the process that happens before and after specimens reach our labs for testing, providing vital links between pathology requests, diagnostic testing and results.


Our transfusion service is critical to the operation of emergency and in-patient care across NSW.
