This laboratory is a section of the Department of Medical Biochemistry, and is headed by Dr Duncan Cole (Consultant in Medical Biochemistry and Metabolic Medicine) and managed by Mr Christopher Davies (Chief Biomedical Scientist).
We offer a large number of blood, urine and faecal assays, required for the diagnosis and monitoring of a wide range of disorders:

- Renal stones
- Phaeochromocytoma & neuroblastoma
- Carcinoid syndrome

Specimens are received from several hospitals, both within Wales and around the UK. In addition to the analytical service, our staff are available to provide clinical advice on appropriate investigations and interpretation of results.
Information for Patients
These laboratory services cannot be accessed directly by patients - a referral from a GP or specialist doctor is required (depending upon the condition involved). If you have any questions about the services available and how these can be accessed by you or your family, please contact your GP to discuss. They should also have information about the funding of these tests within your area as this varies both within and outside of the UK.
