Wake Forest Diagnostic Labs Diagnostic Services

As a world renowned Clinical and Anatomic Pathology Center of Excellence, we can perform more than 1,200 diagnostic tests ranging from the most routine to the highly esoteric.

We perform 99 percent of all tests ordered on site at Wake Forest Baptist Health and within hours of receiving the specimen. In addition, 99 percent of all anatomic pathology cases are read in house by Wake Forest University School of Medicine Department of Pathology physicians.

Our state-of-the-art lab automation system uses autovalidation, total chematology automation and post-analytical automation to reduce both errors and turnaround time. Each specimen arrives at our lab already outfitted with instrument barcode-ready labels. Specimens are then placed directly on the lab automation track - bypassing manual data entry accessioning - and are tested, autovalidated, reported upon and stored in one efficient, high-quality process.
