Thank you for your interest in joining our virtual tour of St. Paul’s lab!
The laboratory team at St. Paul’s provides routine and highly specialized diagnostic services and consultation to clinicians and patients throughout BC and the Yukon.
Their diagnosis in the lab and discoveries at the research bench set the course for your (sometimes life-saving) treatment. Family doctors, surgeons, and entire medical teams depend on the lab for accurate and timely test results, which influence more than 70% of all critical clinical decisions.
As one of the provincial centres testing for COVID-19, St. Paul’s virology lab was the first in Canada to use a new high throughput, fully automated testing method, which quadrupled our testing capacity to more than 2,000 samples a day.
At this event, you will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the labs where samples are tested and processed, hear directly from St. Paul’s experts about their latest innovations, and learn how the lab at the new St. Paul’s at the Jim Pattison Medical Centre will benefit British Columbians. The event will conclude with a Q&A session to answer your questions.
