Beaumont Hospital Laboratory Users Guide

The Beaumont Hospital Laboratory Users Guide enables GPs to get the maximum benefit from the services provided by the Microbiology Department and to optimise turnaround time on results. It provides information on the microbiology and serology tests performed both in the laboratory and those referred to other centres in Ireland and the UK, such as the National Virus Reference Laboratory (NVRL).
