Department Of Laboratory:
histopathology and cytology divisions provide diagnostic
anatomic pathology and cytology services in the fields of
oncopathology, medical pathology and haematopathology as well
as nephrology, gastrointestinal, GU and dermatopathology
Immunoflorescence on kidney and skin biopsies,
immunoperoxidase stains for diagnosis of difficult cases and
estrogen and progesterone receptor studies on breast cancer
cases are carried out at the main department. A wide variety
of lastochemical stains are also performed.
This division determines the sensitivity of the isolated
pathogenic bacteria to the various antibiotics, with the help
of serological tests, thereby aiding the clinicians in the
treatment of bacterial diseases. The department also carries
out hospital surveillance tests to control nosocomial
infection and their spread within the hospital. Emergency
samples that need to be processed after closure of the
department are handled by the staff on call duty.
Biochemistry deals with the chemistry of body fluids such as
blood, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, ascetic fluid, pleural
fluid, synovial fluid, drainage fluid, dialysate fluid, cyst
fluid, pancreatic fluid and bone marrow, renal and gall
stones. The routine tests consist of lipid profile, liver
function tests, heart enzymes, diabetic status, renal profile,
electrolyte status etc.Special investigations such as
glycosylated haemoglobin, protein electropherosis for globulin
fractions, determination of tracer metals, urine determination
for carcinoid tumours, Urine analysis for elements, etc are
related to serological and immunological diagnosis of the
disease are carried out in this section. All hepatitis
markers, Infectious disease serology for the Recent & Past
detection of Bacterial or Viral infection are carried out
here. HIV and other Veneral disease related serology, PCR,
DNA Hybridization Techniques are also available.
