Welcome to the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology (DLMP). The DLMP is the referral laboratory for the State of Qatar, with 70% of our activity in support of clinicians in Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC). We undertake diagnostic testing, which ranges from automated rapid response testing to evolving genetic assays. The department is also responsible for Qatar’s blood supply and for its mortuary service. Our staff work in close partnership with nursing for point of care testing and also support HMC screening programs.
