Abstract
The article presents the analysis of organizational aspects of laboratory service of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The investigation of public opinions concerning functioning of private laboratories was organized using technique of anonymous questionnaire survey. The sampling included 200 patients visiting clinical diagnostic laboratory "MediaLab". The survey established several issues to be resolved to assist development of laboratory service.

Abstract
A novel influenza A (H1N1) virus detected in April 2009 rapidly spread around the world. North American provincial and state laboratories have well-defined roles and responsibilities, including providing accurate, timely test results for patients and information for regional public health and other decision makers. We used the multidisciplinary response and rapid implementation of process changes based on Lean methods at the provincial public health laboratory in British Columbia, Canada, to improve laboratory surge capacity in the 2009 influenza pandemic. Observed and computer simulating evaluation results from rapid processes changes showed that use of Lean tools successfully expanded surge capacity, which enabled response to the 10-fold increase in testing demands.
