Definition


Biological analysis consists of the study of biological fluid samples from the body: blood, urine, stool... It is done in a medical test laboratory. It aids in finding the normality or in finding possible anomalies by comparing them with normal samples while taking into account different factors such as the age and the sex of the patient. Some disorders or conditions, harmless or dangerous, like the growth of certain cancers, can be found thanks to biological analysis.
