About Clinical Laboratory Services
Clinical laboratories provide services that help healthcare professionals (HCPs) diagnose and treat diseases. Clinical laboratories conduct specialty tests of large volume of samples such as blood, plasma, and lipids. Several organizations such as nursing homes, corporate offices, insurance companies, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and hospitals refer people to clinical laboratories for testing. Though hospitals may have in-house testing capabilities, they outsource testing to clinical laboratories due to the large volume of samples and the high cost of equipment.

Advances in medicine have reduced the prevalence of disability, which also increases life expectancy.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Lack of skilled professionals. Clinical laboratory professionals are skilled and certified professionals who are trained in the theoretical and practical aspects of clinical laboratory medicine. These include hematology, chemistry, microbiology, immunology, blood banking, and molecular pathology. Clinical laboratory professionals play different roles such as staff technologists, research technologists, supervisors, managers, or educators. Approximately 60%-70% of all medical decisions involving hospital admissions and discharge and diagnosis and treatment are decided by clinical laboratory professionals.
