Mission Statement

Our mission is to be a world-class resource for testing that aids in the diagnosis and treatment of hematopoietic disorders. We provide gold-standard, accurate, and efficient services to health care providers for the benefit of patients.


The Hematopathology Laboratory at the University of Washington offers a wide variety of testing to aid in the diagnosis of leukemias, lymphomas and other hematopoietic or immunological disorders. In addition, the laboratory is involved in research and development of diagnostic tests and their clinical application. The laboratory personnel also provide high quality teaching to residents, fellows, medical students and medical laboratory science students. Finally, the laboratory is committed to keeping community clinicians informed of new developments in this rapidly changing area of laboratory medicine.
