Kid-Friendly Tests, Fast Results

Nemours Children's pediatric pathology doctors help kids get the best care possible. We test cells, tissues and fluids so our doctors can make the best decisions.

We offer nearly every lab test, from routine to highly specialized. Because we’re trained in children’s diseases, we know exactly what to look for. That’s important because the right diagnosis can help your child get the right care, and feel better, sooner.

Our pathologists use the latest technologies for fast, accurate results. We have state-of-the-art labs and advanced equipment onsite. This means we do most tests here, where your child gets care. It can also reduce the time you have to wait for results.

Our lab team knows how to calm kids of all ages as they draw blood and do other tests. We use kid-friendly methods and approaches that make it a little easier for everyone.

At Nemours, you get the highest level of skill when it matters most.
