PATHOLOGY & LAB SERVICES
Pathology is a study of disease based on the laboratory analysis of bodily fluids such as blood and urine, as well as tissues, using the tools of chemistry, clinical microbiology, hematology and molecular pathology.
- Hematology: Hematology is the science or study of blood, blood-forming organs and blood diseases.
Hematologists focus largely on lymphatic organs and bone marrow and may diagnose blood count irregularities or platelet irregularities. Hematologists treat organs that are fed by blood cells, including the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus and lymphoid tissue.
One of the most common hematology tests is the complete blood count, or CBC. This test is often conducted during a routine exam and can detect anemia, clotting problems, blood cancers, immune system disorders and infections.
- Biochemistry: Biochemistry is the branch of science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems. Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what’s happening inside our cells, studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles.
- Microbiology: Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa that can only be seen with a microscope.
- Serology: Serology is the scientific study of serum and other bodily fluids. Serological tests are blood tests that look for antibodies in your blood.
- Molecular Biology: Molecular Biology is the field of biology that studies the composition, structure and interactions of cellular molecules – such as nucleic acids and proteins.
- Histopathology: Histopathology is the microscopic examination of biological tissues to observe the appearance of diseased cells and tissues.
- Cytopathology: Cytopathology is the use of specialist diagnostic techniques to examine individual cells extracted from tissues to determine the cause and nature of a disease, such as Pap test or fine-needle aspiration etc.
Fully automated and semi-automated analyzers provide with acute computerized pathology and biochemistry reports. Automated Blood Cell counter provides with Complete Hematology. In house Microbiology, Serology and Hormone analyzer ensure for accuracy any doctor desires from these reports.
