The Department of Clinical Diagnostic Laboratories (CDL) began operating at the Clinical Training Centre (CTC), Faculty of Medicine, UiTM Sungai Buloh Campus in October 2010 and was known at that time with the Centre for Diagnostic Pathology and Research Laboratories (CPDRL). At that time, CPDRL was under the Cluster of Medical Laboratories. Once the cluster system is abolished, the Department of Pathology and the Department of Microbiology & Parasitology is created with their respective laboratory services.

However, in December 2020, in line with UiTM Teaching Hospital's establishment, these medical laboratories' services were reunited under the name of Department of Clinical Diagnostic Laboratories (CDL). The department functions to provide medical laboratory tests under one roof. CDL provides pathological services to PPUiTM Sungai Buloh, PPUiTM Selayang & external organizations. Besides, CDL provides diagnostic, research, and consultancy services in the following disciplines, namely Anatomic Pathology, Hematology &Transfusion Medicine, Chemical Pathology and Medical Microbiology & Parasitology.

CDL has been accredited with MS ISO 15189:2007 accreditation by the Department of Standards Malaysia since 2014. The CDL laboratory is located on the first floor of  Hospital UiTM Puncak Alam and  the first level of the Medical Specialist Centre, UiTM Sg. Buloh Campus.
