APCP Division

Anatomic Pathology and Clinical Pathology

The Anatomic and Clinical Pathology (APCP) Division is an integral part of the NKTI Medical Laboratory and the NKTI. As part of the Institute’s healthcare team, it is open 24 hours daily, seven days a week regardless of holidays, inclement weather, and public declared closure days.

The APCP Division is a full-service laboratory with broad array of routine and special diagnostic tests in Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microscopy, Microbiology, Histopathology, Virology, Special Chemistry and Electron Microscopy. It is a major contributor towards the attainment of the goals of the Department and the Institute concerning patient service, education/training and research. It has the following principal functions:

  • To provide patient-centered, high-quality, cost-effective and comprehensive Anatomic and Clinical Pathology services not only to the program of transplantation, but to a wide variety of patients. To provide vital laboratory tests and expertise not readily available in other laboratories in the Philippines and other medical centers.
  • To deliver quality education and training in the fundamentals of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine to pathologists, medical technologists, medical students, residents, fellows and colleagues.
  • To support research programs for the discovery of new knowledge relevant to the practice of Laboratory Medicine.

Because we adhere to strict quality controls and adopt highly standardized procedures, the NKTI Laboratory has been designated as the National Reference Laboratory for Hematology, Immunohematology, Immunopathology, Automated Urinalysis, and Anatomic Pathology for Renal Diseases and other unassigned organ system diseases pursuant to Department Order No. 393-E s. 2000, dated November 14, 2000.
