The Institute of Clinical Chemistry (IKC) provides rapid, high quality and cost-effective laboratory diagnostics for patient care and clinical research. Laboratory analyses are primarily performed for outpatients and inpatients at the University Hospital Zurich, but additional services are also provided for external clients (e.g. hospitals, private laboratories, doctors’ offices). The directory of services encompasses more than 500 different test parameters and biomarkers. Information about the laboratory parameters provided at the IKC is available in the UZL analysis information system (in German).
