Specialised Techniques

At MyLab, we focus exclusively on dermatopathology. This means our team are experts in the processing, detection, and diagnosis of skin cancers and skin disorders.

We use a combination of specialised physical techniques, cell staining, and immunohistochemistry testing to process specimens. Our ability to perform these tests in-house and on-demand reduces the time practitioners, and their patients, spend waiting for results.

Our technicians are expertly trained in the processing of Mohs surgery cases – a technique widely regarded as the gold standard for removing cancerous cell while saving as much healthy tissue as possible. All Mohs cases are prioritised and our pathologists are always available to discuss the best course of action for patient treatment.


Once the specimens arrive to our lab, we expect results to be ready in 24 to 48 hours. In some cases, the pathologists may add extra tests or special stains are to assist in the diagnosis. We recommend the patients make an appointment with their doctor to discuss results about one week after the sample is taken. Upon request, urgent cases can be processed within 24 hours.

Online web reports are available for registered referrers.

Our pathologists produce concise but comprehensive reports, which can include diagrams and images to help both doctors and patients understand the diagnosis. We are able to create customised reports based on our doctors’ request, giving you the detail you need and how you want it.

Reports can be delivered by fax, hard copy, or electronic download. If you would like to set up your practice to receive reports via electronic download, visit the HealthLink website, or call us on (07) 3726 1020 and we can assist you.

MyLab is an accredited CPD Education provider for the RACGP.

We offer several accredited education courses for doctors wanting to improve their skin cancer management skills. Our courses cover everything from basic dermoscopy, how to identify suspicious lesions, and soft procedures like shave biopsies, to advanced surgical procedures such as complete excisions, wound closures, and skin-flap construction.


MyLab provides real, in-clinic experience where you can practice the surgical techniques alongside the doctor in the procedure room. The courses are run by Dr Damien Foong, who has over 20 years of clinical experience and is a former president of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia.

Dermoscopy Day

Our Dermoscopy Day takes you back to the  foundations of dermoscopy, reviewing and discussing images using the 3 point checklist algorithm. Real patients are in attendance so that the skills learnt can then be put into practice using a dermatoscope. Depending on the patients you will also see live procedures; shave biopsies, punch biopsies and cryotherapy before putting those skills to practice on pig trotters.

This activity has been approved for the 2023-2025 RACGP Education Program for 6 CPD hours.


Advanced Course

Our advanced course takes a look at some advanced dermoscopyusing the features of pattern analysis before observing real life cases such as excisions, skin-flap construction, and skin grafts. Skills observed are then put into practice on a pig trotter by converting an excision to a flap, and practising different suturing techniques.

This activity has been approved for the 2023-2025 RACGP Education Program for 6 CPD hours.
