4611-CHU-Unilab Lg-logoWe have developed particular competences in several very specialized topics like bone and cartilage markers, in vitro allergology, oxidative stress, hormonology and endocrinology, cardiac markers and auto-immunity. We also have validated different methods for 25(OH) vitamin D determination.

Our services include:

  • A complete panel of chemistry analyses including (but not exclusively) electrolytes, hormones, peptides, cytokines, specialized oxidative stress markers (lipid peroxidation, ROS assays, anti-oxidant assays, fatty acids determination), growth factors, lipids, enzymes…
  • Biochemical characterization of your samples including patient blood samples, culture media…

MicrobiologyThe clinical microbiology laboratory is a full-service routine and specialized reference laboratory. They test diverse specimens from patients to detect a wide range of human pathogens that are, or may be, a cause of the illness. Their role is also to provide information about the in vitro activity of antimicrobial drug against the microorganisms identified.

Each year, researchers perform about:

  • 350.000 cultures or analyses from more or less 130.000 clinical specimens
  • Thousands of clinical and therapeutic advices
  • 250 clinical rounds with the infectious diseases specialists of the university hospital
  • 3.000 cultures with identification for microbiological quality assessment from environmental samples

As a national reference laboratory for AIDS, Streptococcus agalactiae, Vibrio cholerae /parahaemolyticus and mycosis/fungi since 90’s, we perform epidemiological surveillances at national and international levels. The laboratory has extensive experience in developing, conducting and interpreting tests for patients with infectious diseases and for those prone to infections, such as immunocompromised, cancer and AIDS patients.

Most of our laboratories are biosafety level 2 and we established biosafety level 3 facilities for mycobacteriology and AIDS reference laboratory.

ToxicologyUnilab has established a clear leadership in all fields of human toxicology such as clinical, forensic, industrial and environmental toxicology. Our medical subspecialty focuses on the diagnosis, management and prevention of poisoning and other adverse health effects due to medications, occupational and environmental toxicants.

We realize each year more or less:

  • 40.000 clinical analyses (serum or urine)
  • 500 forensic expertise
  • 25 environmental assessments
  • 200 to 300 industrial analyses



ImmunohematologyWe harbor the largest blood bank in Wallonia and our histocompatibility and immunogenetics unit is accredited by the European Federation for Immunogenetics and Eurotransplant for solid organ and stem cell transplants.

Our services include:

  • Complete blood counts and leukocyte differentials using the latest technology in blood cell counters equipped with digital microscopy
  • Cytology of body fluid through automated counters and microscopy
  • Immunophenotyping analysis of lymphocyte subpopulations, blood cell precursors and qualification of haematopoietic and non-haematopoietic stem cell products
  • Broad coagulation screens
  • Specialized tests for deficiencies in pro-coagulant and anticoagulant factors
  • Von Willebrand disease testing
  • Assessment of acquired inhibitors and lupus anticoagulants
  • Fibrinolysis evaluation
  • Thrombin generation assays
  • Blood grouping and serologic testing
  • Serologic testing for anti-HLA antibodies by complement-dependent cytotoxicity and bead array
  • HLA typing by serology and molecular biology (by SSO and SSP techniques)
