Medical Infrastructure
Lab Services Laboratory Medicine The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at our hospitals is based on the NABL norms pertaining to safety, infrastructure, backups, waste management and disaster recovery, and is designed to handle large volumes. We have different sub-departments like biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, hematology, histopatho-immunology, molecular genetics. The range of lab tests includes various fields like molecular biology, serology, enzyme immunoassays, immunology, hematology, clinical pathology, nephelometry, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, immunohistochemistry, fish& histopathology. All the instruments are integrated with laboratory management system. All the tests are conducting under the strict supervision of experts. We provide very friendly and neat and clean environment with best services like home sample collection, timely message alerts on mobile phones, good communication staff with top quality manpower. Due to high levels of technology & computerization samples are processed both efficiently and economically, and most of the results are available within 24 hours from receipt of samples. BIOCHEMISTRY Fully automated systems for clinical chemistry and advanced immunoassay system for hormonal assays, tumor markers, antibodies to various proteins and antigens to infectious diseases. HEMATOLOGY Fully automated five parts cell counters and high-end coagulation analyzers for detecting blood disorders like leukemia, thalassemia, clotting disorders and bone marrow. MICROBIOLOGY State of art automated culture and antibiotic sensitivity testing systems. HISTOPATHOLOGY Latest equipment to process tissue and biopsies and immunohistochemistry platform for accurate classification of tumors. MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS FLOW CYTOMETRY The Best flow cytometry equipment with three laser and eight colour technology for tissue typing in organ transplantation, stem cell enumeration and bone marrow typing, the analysis of the leukaemia and lymphomas, detection of minimal residual diseases (MRD), immunological monitoring of HIV infected individuals, detection of antibodies, DNA content analysis, immunodeficiency diseases, assessment of structural and functional properties of erythrocytes, leucocytes, platelets. REAL-TIME POLYMER CHAIN REACTION It is used for real-time genetic analysis of wide range of infectious diseases and disease-causing agents, redefining active MRSA surveillance, pre-surgical testing of S.aurens & MRSA, detection of MRSA&SA in skin and soft tissues, detection of ‘flu A’ & identification of H1N1 in one hour, rapid test for enteroviral meningitis, MTB & resistance to rifampicin, to detect factor 2 and factor 5 Leiden associated with thrombophilia. DNA MICRO ASSAYS For expression of thousands of genes simultaneously in a particular sample by using C-DNA microarray & DNA chips. It is used to detect tumors of unknown primary origin with 80% accuracy. FLUORESCENCE IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION (FISH) FISH is a technique used to detect chromosomal abnormalities. It is used as a powerful cytogenetic tool to detect hematological malignancies & solid tumors. FISH is applied to detect genetic abnormalities such as gene fusions, aneuploidy, loss of chromosomal region and identification of novel oncogenes. It is potential diagnostics tool to fight against cancer.
