The activities in laboratory establishment are screened by various moral, ethical and
legal principles. The primary issues are informed consent, the privacy of the patient
and their records, codes of conduct, conflict of interest, laboratory utilization, skill,
and direct access testing. These issues are ethically challenging in the ordinary set-up
in developing countries like India. The interpretation of the laboratory report and
authentication of the same by signatures plays a significant role in diagnosing and
managing the patient in the era of evidence-based medicine (EBM).
