The Ruesch Clinic provides its patients with specialized medical teams and high-profile equipment making the facility a benchmark for diagnostics in Southern Italy.
The clinical analyzes are all those tests carried out in a clinical analysis laboratory aimed at carrying out measurements on materials and substances in order to make a medical diagnosis.
The analysis laboratories are responsible for examining samples of biological material such as blood, urine, cerebro-spinal fluid and tissue. You can undergo clinical analysis not only to make a diagnosis, but also for prevention and to establish the best performing method for a patient’s care.
The most performed clinical analysis’ are certainly those of blood and urine. However, there are also other types of clinical analysis, less routine and more targeted, such as, sperm analysis (spermiocoltura) aimed at diagnosing diseases and infectious activities in the male genital organ and in the urethral tract.
Guaranteed Quality of Testing
The Ruesch Clinic test laboratory is one of the international group of laboratories [about 20.000 in the world] which uses the Randox International Quality Assessment Scheme [UK]. All the laboratory technicians are specialists with a degree in Clinical Pathology. The techniques used in the lab are state of the art. Patients are treated in a personalized and comfortable manner. The test results are prompt and, if necessary and technically possible, available immediately. There is total transparency and willingness to provide patients with all the information and clarification requested, both in the pre-analytical phase and in the interpretation of the results.
The laboratory is able to provide doctors with all the analytical data necessary for clinical diagnosis and the treatment of in- or out-patients.
In addition to this, differentiated health check-ups based on age and sex are available.
We carry out the following tests:
Haematology, Immunohematology, Coagulation [including test for congenital and acquired thrombophilia], Haematochemistry [including tumour tracers and biochemical testing for osteoporosis], Endocrinology, Immunopathology [including autoimmunity and allergy], Gynaecology and Obstetrics [including laboratory test for couple infertility, polyabortivity, preparatory tests for medically assisted conception and antenatal diagnostics]. Classic and molecular Microbiology and Virology [including serodiagnosis of infectious diseases and direct search for viruses and bacteria in tampons or other material through specific amplification of DNA or RNA, and Breath Test], Medical genetics, Pathologic anatomy [Cyto-histopathology, with the medical advice of an expert in the field].
In order to provide such a wide range of analytic services, essential today for clinical diagnosis and the treatment of in- and out-patients, the Ruesch laboratory collaborates with selected specialized and highly qualified centres.
The laboratory is available 24 hrs. a day.

Some examples of typical laboratory analysis
The blood count (abbreviation commonly used for blood count) is definitely the most common clinical analysis and is a laboratory blood test, aimed at determining the amount of blood cells, the hematocrit level, hemoglobin and many other parameters . Often these analyzes are accompanied by more targeted blood tests, such as those aimed at controlling the level of cholesterol in the blood.
The blood sample is taken through a needle inserted in a superficial vein of the arm. Withdrawal is commonly performed in a clinic or hospital. The blood is then stored at room temperature along with an anticoagulant. In the analysis laboratory, a machine is analyzed by the counter-globule, which is a laboratory instrument capable of quantifying the figured components of the blood.
On the report which will then be submitted to the patient, the data of the analyzes are marked with the reference values next to it, ie the range of normal values according to the patient’s gender and age and the instrumentation used.
Urinalysis is a clinical analysis that allows to evaluate the characteristics of urine. Doctors prescribe this type of analysis when there is a suspicion of a urinary tract infection or to notice the effectiveness of a treatment. The characteristics that are found in a urinalysis are of three types: physical, chemical and microscopic. The physical characteristics are those that concern the “appearance” of the sample, referring to parameters such as color, clarity, smell and specific weight. The chemical characteristics are instead linked to the chemical qualities of the sample, such as pH, the concentration of proteins, nitrite and glucose, etc. The microscopic characteristics are those concerning, instead, the presence of crystals, bacteria, parasites, the presence of casts, red or white blood cells, etc.
Obviously, even in the case of urinalysis, the examination can be targeted and includes an antibiogram.
