Objective To investigate and analyse the development of labs with different modes in general hospitals. Methods Seventeen labs with three development modes in Renji Hospital affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine were selected, among which 2 were key labs, 1 was central lab and the other 14 were specialty labs. Selfdesigned questionnaires were adopted to investigate the development status of labs with different modes, and the development trend of labs were explored with interview and group discussion. Results The experiment area and numbers of staff, precision instrument, clinical test programs, cultivated graduate students and research programs in key labs far surpassed those of central lab and specialty labs. The percent of staff with master or doctor degree in key labs was higher than that in specialty labs, and the number of precision instrument purchased after 2005 was much higher than those in central lab and specialty labs. In 2008, 29 graduate students conducted thesis-related research in central lab, with 11 tertiary disciplines which accounted for 42.31% of all the disciplines. Conclusion Key lab leads the comprehensive development, and central lab has exhibited the characteristics of broad coverage of disciplines.
