Clinical Biochemistry

The complete blood count (CBC) is a traditional platform test in the clinical laboratory practice. The laboratory is equipped with completely automated instrument, cell counters for carrying out routine haematological investigations such as haemoglobin, total and differential leukocyte count, platelet count and red blood cell indices and fully automated benchtop, hemostasis workstation for clotting assays. This department is equipped with highly experienced team of Pathologists. 

It also carries out complete work up of anemia and leukemia cases with expert pathologist consultation.

Haematology

The complete blood count (CBC) is a traditional platform test in the clinical laboratory practice.

This department is equipped with highly experienced team of Pathologists. The automated systems use unique method of sample management for rapid processing of STAT samples. Highly sensitive reagents are used on the fully automated haematology systems.

It also carries out complete work up of anemia and leukemia cases with expert pathologist consultation.

Microbiology & Serology

The laboratory is specialized in analysis of all clinical samples for rapid detection of microbes their identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing. The lab also utilizes the full benefit of automated system for continuous loading, real time detection of bacterial growth curves, quantitative results, susceptibility testing with customized antibiotic panels, automated results reading and reporting and bi-directional interface with user-friendly software. Our lab is equipped with separate automated machines for urine culture, blood culture, microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing. The tandem utilization of automated machines helps us in releasing urine culture negative reports within 4 hours and positive reports within a day. Automated blood culture system makes detection of microbes, within a day, possible for strong positive cases, which could be a boon to critically ill patients. Automated identification system strengthens and widens our identification library to more than thousand species of microorganisms. We also offer on-site operation theater surveillance and fumigation protocols.

Histopathology

The Histopathology laboratory, headed by a senior most pathologist, provides opinion on biopsies from all tissues from specialities like Gynaecology, Urology, Gastro-intestinal, Cardiovascular, Orthopaedic, Respiratory Medicine and highly specialized areas such as Neuropathology, Oncology and Transplant (liver& renal) pathology. Intra-operative cytology consultations are also available. External cases in the form of specimens or review slides are also reported. Fluid cytology, fine needle aspiration cytology and PAP Smears are routinely available.

In order to achieve the goal of early and reliable reporting, the laboratory is equipped with high quality precision equipments which include Phase Contrast, Fluorescent and Polarisation microscope with high pixel camera and necessary software. Diagnostic indicators like ER and PR receptor studies are also being reported on breast cancer cases. A wide range of IHC markers are available for the diagnosis and Management of other tumours.
