Also known as chemical pathology, clinical biochemistry is the area of diagnostic medical testing that is generally concerned with analysis of body fluids, mostly on serum or plasma for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Our laboratories are equipped with fully automated and integrated chemistry analysers to perform a wide spectrum of clinical chemistry tests with high precision and accuracy levels under the strict supervision of consultant Chemical Pathologists. Some of the techniques used for biochemistry testing include Spectrophotometry, Fluorimetry, Enzymology, Atomic Emission and Absorption, Chromatography, Electrophoresis, Immunological and Radioisotope Techniques.
The Microbiology unit of our labs offer diagnostic bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, virology, and mycobacteriology. Microbiology is a branch of medical science concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. In addition, this field of science studies various clinical applications of microbes for the improvement of health. All microbiology investigations are carried out under the strict supervision of consultant microbiologists.
Histopathology is the microscopic examination of biological tissues to observe the appearance of diseased cells and tissues in very fine detail. The main use of histopathology is in clinical medicine where it typically involves the examination of a biopsies (i.e. a surgically removed sample or specimen taken from a patient for the purposes of detailed study) by a specialist consultant pathologist
The haematology unit of our labs cover the study of blood, blood-forming organs and blood diseases. It also includes the treatment of blood disorders and malignancies, including types of hemophilia, leukemia, lymphoma and sickle-cell anemia. Hematology is a branch of internal medicine that deals with the physiology, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention of blood-related issues.
The advance haematology analyzers used by our laboratories deploy the techniques of electrical impedance, flow cytometry, and fluorescent flow cytometry. All haematology tests are carried out under the strict supervision of Consultant Haematologists.
The Immunology Laboratory is responsible for laboratory testing and clinical consultation in several broad areas including the evaluation of autoimmune disease, immunodeficiencies, immunoproliferative disorders, and allergies. Immunology studies the immune system and is a very important branch of the medical and biological sciences. The immune system protects us from infection through various lines of defence. If the immune system is not functioning as it should, it can result in disease, such as autoimmunity, allergy and cancer.
Molecular diagnostics is referred to as the detection of genomic variants, aiming to facilitate detection, diagnosis, subclassification, prognosis, and monitoring response to therapy. Molecular diagnostics is the outcome of the fruitful interplay among laboratory medicine, genomics knowledge, and technology in the field of molecular genetics, especially with significant discoveries in the field of molecular genomic technologies
