Molecular pathology is a relatively new division of laboratory medicine that detects, characterizes, and/or quantifies nucleic acids to assist in the diagnosis of human disease. Molecular assays augment classic areas of laboratory medicine by providing additional diagnostic data more quickly or by providing results that are not obtainable using standard methods. For these reasons, molecular pathology is the most rapidly growing area in laboratory medicine.
