Mayo Clinic Laboratories provides reference lab and related services for hospitals and other health care providers around the world. Their expertise goes beyond that of a typical reference laboratory, in that they also provide diagnostic laboratory services for Mayo Clinic hospitals and outpatient clinics. Furthermore, they daily work hand-in-hand with clinicians and other scientists to identify ways to meet the needs of patients and the ever-evolving health care system.

In a recent article on the Mayo Clinic Laboratories website, William Morice II, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and president of Mayo Clinic Laboratories, and Scott Beck, chief operating officer for laboratory service at Mayo Clinic, discuss what makes the Labs different.

They describe Mayo Clinic's Translational Research, Innovation, and Test Development Office, which links the research, innovation and test development processes. Dr. Morice points to the pragmatic nature of their investigative process as the reason for success.

"We want to bring into clinical use tests that provide our customers with a reliable answer — an answer that's repeated not one time but 1,000 times," he says.
