Clinical analyses are a major component in the study, prevention, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of numerous diseases.

This is why at Eurofins Megalab we have created a comprehensive clinical analysis service. Our department is comprised of specialist doctors, veterinarians, biologists, lab technicians and pharmacists, all of whom are highly qualified.

This department looks at the various biological samples taken from humans: urine, faeces, blood, amniotic, cerebrospinal, pericardial, bone marrow fluids, etc.

The Clinical Analysis department contains the following functional areas:

Blood testing

The important elements of the blood and hematopoietic tissue that it is made up of are studied, such as lymph nodes, bone marrow and others. A blood count is a test that provides very useful data on the patient and is one of the most commonly requested tests at the clinical laboratory.

At Eurofins Megalab we have the industry’s most advanced technological tools, with analysers that include all of the main parameters from a clinical viewpoint, providing precise results without errors.


The tests that locate thrombotic, haemorrhagic and hypercoagulation disorders are performed in this area.

We have the most advanced tools, fully automatic devices with a high degree of operability, that provide results of the highest quality.

INR testing is very common when monitoring treatment with Sintrom. Its purpose is to achieve a precise anticoagulation level, always depending on the patient’s condition. The test is performed with digital coagulometers that analyse the blood by pricking a capillary in the finger.


The chemical elements of the liquid portion of blood and urine are studied. The most common ones are to determine cholesterol, glucose, electrolytes, triglycerides, transaminases, etc.

We have several high-output auto-analysers that provide high efficiency, quality and performance.


The tests identify the pathology of the allergy, the allergens are identified and the patients are given hypo-sensitising treatment and are monitored.

We use the most advanced immunoassay systems, with latest generation chemiluminescence offering the highest precision and sensitivity.

Biological markers

Tests for biological markers are performed, which are substances created by cancerous cells or by the body’s cells as a response to cancer, but also as a response to certain benign processes.

The most common of these are CA125, PSA, Alpha-fetoprotein, CEA A, among others.


Disorders caused by changes in the endocrine glands that transfer their substance to the circulatory system are analysed. Routine testing is performed: cortisol, testosterone, TSH, pregnancy hormone, estradiol, prolactin, progesterone, etc.

Chemiluminescence is the method employed, an advanced technology in the sector that is recognised worldwide for its specific and exact results.


Immune system tests are performed: autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immunodeficiencies, etc. The most common tests are for chickenpox, herpes, hepatitis (A, B, C), HIV, rubella, toxoplasma. Specific tests for celiac diseases are also performed: Transglutaminase, IgA and IgG gliadin and autoimmune tests such as ANA, ENA and Anti dsDNA.


This is the area that detects whether there are potentially toxic products present in various biological samples. Abuse of drugs, medications, volatile toxins or pesticides are the main toxin groups that are evaluated.

Blood bank

Blood donation is guaranteed thanks to its storage or its byproducts, and also that it is safe before being used in blood transfusions or for other medical activities carried out in the hospitals that we serve.
