The Department of Laboratory Medicine is a busy department that serves every corner of our health care system, including hospitals, health centers, clinics, the extramural program, and point-of-care testing programs. Generally, with only 4-5% of health care money, Laboratory Medicine supplies 60-70% of information for medical decisions for patient screening, diagnosis, prognosis, and prevention.

The Department of Laboratory Medicine provides ~4.5 million tests per year for Fredericton and Upper River Valley areas. The service heavily depends on high efficient and high quality equipment such as analyzers, sample preparation/storage devices, and robotic automation.

Our Medical Laboratory needs $700,000 to purchase essential equipment to help deal with the increasing demand. Every dollar donated stays right here in our community, helping our neighbours, co-workers, and family members when they need it the most.
