About the Clinic

Department of medical biochemistry;

It is a specialty unit that does not accept patients directly and is also known as clinical biochemistry department.
It is responsible for the laboratory examination of the samples necessary for the prevention of diseases, the determination of the factors that trigger the formation of the disease, the health evaluation of the patients, the monitoring of the course of the disease, the prediction of the recovery rate, the diagnosis of the diseases and the follow-up of the treatment.
For this, organ function tests or other biological laboratory tests are applied. Steps such as which tests will be applied to the patient, cooperation with other branch physicians for diagnosis and treatment, and interpretation of the test results are carried out by the medical biochemistry department. Studies have proven that 70% of the treatments to be applied to patients are determined based on the results of the examination. Therefore, the medical biochemistry department has an important place in the field of health. The analyzes and their results enable the determination of the necessary steps for the recovery of the patients in the shortest time and in the most effective way. In the medical biochemistry department, biochemists, chemists, biologists, technicians, nurses and other health professionals work together. At the same time, they constantly cooperate with the doctors of the branch. The analyzes and tests performed in the clinical biochemistry department vary depending on the equipment and competence of the health institution. Basic hematological analyzes, routine biochemistry examinations and urine tests are at the forefront of the examinations performed in all hospitals and health institutions. However, with the expansion of the hospital capacity, the variety of tests will increase.

Two different quality control methods are used for medical biochemistry tests to give accurate results;

External (External) Quality Control Method: The results of the examinations are sent to an objective institution located outside the hospital. In this way, it becomes possible to compare the results from the institution with the results provided in the hospital and to measure the laboratory performance.

 Internal (Internal) Quality Control Method: It can be repeated once or more than once during the day. For this, previously measured samples are reanalyzed. If the results are within the expected range, the accuracy of the examination results is confirmed. After this procedure, new patient samples are analyzed.

Quality control studies directly affect the reliability of laboratory test results and the effectiveness of the treatment process. Therefore, it is very important that it should not be neglected.
