The MEDILYS Laborgesellschaft is a subsidiary medical laboratory company of the Asklepios chain of hospitals with its main diagnostic activities centered in and around Hamburg. MEDILYS serves the hospitals of the Asklepios Kliniken Hamburg GmbH, as well as hospitals in northern Germany and other medical facilities. The MEDILYS Laborgesellschaft mbH provides a wide range of laboratory diagnostics as well as hospital hygiene and microbiological examinations, among others a supervision of the Drinking Water Ordinance.
Each year we analyse over 15 million samples in the field of clinical chemistry, haematology, haemostaseology, serology and molecular genetics. We also carry out over 440,000 bacterial diagnostic tests. A particular focus of our company, among other things, is on hospital hygiene.
This includes the certified monitoring of the drinking water supply. Our main emphasis is the prevention of infections in the clinical field and the management of antibiotic stewardship.
The interdisciplinary cooperation with the department of microbiology particularly promotes the rapid diagnostics of bacterial and viral pathogenes and tests their sensitivity to antibiotics. This process allows competent advice on specific strategies to treat severe infections.
