Laboratory Medicine - Core Laboratory
This section serves as a rapid response laboratory for a wide variety of chemical, hematology, coagulation and
toxicology tests as well as body fluid evaluations. Urgent Gram Smears and rapid infectious antigen detection is performed
here as well. Approximately 1 million billable tests are performed in this section per year. Many Urgent specimens are
sent directly to this section without going to the Central Receiving Section.
The phone number is 503-494-4139 for chemistry testing and 503-494-4111 hematology testing.
