Modernizing Chemistry at St. Paul's

New chemistry analyzers now helping deliver a new era of care.

In 2023, St Paul’s Hospital laboratory completed a major update in instrumentation for routine chemistry and immunoassay testing. For routine chemistries (e.g., electrolytes, liver function tests) the Siemens ADVIA 1800 instruments were replaced with Roche Cobas c503 instruments. Immunoassay testing was updated from Roche e601 to the Roche Cobas e801. Instrumentation was carefully selected to maintain testing services, while improving quality and efficiencies.

Healthcare professionals can find details on changes in testing methodology and reporting in the Chemistry - Medical & Technical Bulletins section of the website.
