Routine tests are performed 24/7 every day of the year through the joint effort of the teams of the Hemostasis Laboratory and the Hematology Laboratory on a shared technical platform.
Specialized tests are performed exclusively by the team of the Hemostasis Laboratory, comprised of 5 technicians, a biologist in charge of technique and quality, and a physician managing the laboratory. The Hemostasis Laboratory works in close collaboration with the Hemostasis Unit, in particular for expert clinical assessment of the laboratory results.
