Diagnostic Laboratory Services

National capabilities; hometown touch

While all diagnostic laboratories are licensed and accredited, they are not all created equal. Fairview Diagnostic Laboratories are small enough to accommodate your special requests, yet large enough to offer cost competitive pricing, faster turnaround time on results and local customer service.

Fairview Diagnostic Laboratories is a full-service reference laboratory affiliated with Fairview Health Services. We offer the largest comprehensive test menu in the Minneapolis / St. Paul metro area. Recognized regionally and nationally, the multi-site laboratory offers a full range of testing services, from acute care support to esoteric reference diagnostic testing, with a strong emphasis on quality, accuracy, and timeliness. In addition to our exceptional laboratory services, we also offer competitive pricing and outstanding customer service.
