At Wake Forest Baptist's Department of Pathology Diagnostic Laboratories, we provide world-class clinical and anatomic pathology services to the local medical community and beyond. We have the ability to perform more than 1,200 different tests, including specimen testing and interpretation for tissue, blood, urine and other fluids.

We are the largest medical center based lab in North Carolina, conducting roughly 5.5 million tests and consultations each year. This expanded scope, coupled with the academic research we conduct in conjunction with Wake Forest University School of Medicine, ensures our staff stays on the leading edge of testing protocols and procedures.
