Welcome to the Institute of Laboratory Medicine

The Institute of Laboratory Medicine provides a wide range of medical laboratory tests for the German Heart Centre Munich.

The measurements and methods used for determining autologous substances and cells in body fluids as well as for drug monitoring are constantly being updated and adapted to state of the art technology.

The modern equipment is backed up by an efficient laboratory computer system that is linked up to the entire hospital information system.

The institute operates according to the principles of Total Quality Management, and was the first organisation of its type in Europe to be externally assessed according to the model of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM).
