Pathology

Pathology Testing

Clinical biochemistry is the area of clinical pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids.

These investigations enable you to know whether you are diabetic, hypertensive or having any organ related abnormalities. In routine you may be required to undergo the investigations such as:

  • Fasting blood sugar,
  • Lipid profile,
  • Lipoprotein studies,
  • Liver function tests
  • Renal function test,
  • Tumor markers,
  • Cardiac markers,
  • And hormonal profiles for fertility studies.

 Many other advance investigations are performed at AML 

Hematology is the study of blood, blood components and blood diseases.

Investigations in this field screens for shortness of blood levels, excessive (polycythemia) blood in your system and its abnormalities (leukemia).

These investigations also help in ascertaining infections and immunity status of your body (with the help of differential count).

In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.

Immunology is a study of human body’s immune status. In other words it informs you about the ability of your body system to protect against the infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and several worms.

Investigations in this area include Syphilis testing, Widal, Malaria antibodies, HIV antibodies, Rubella virus testing, Hepatitis A, B & C screening and advance Cancer markers are also available.

In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.

Endocrinology is the study of hormones. Hormones are bio-chemicals which help in normal functions of several body metabolisms. Abnormalities in their secretion and transport from one part of the body to the other usually result in diseases.

Some of these diseases are Diabetes, Infertility, Several other syndromes, etc.

The investigations in this area include fertility screening, insulin testing, growth related problems, hypertension, kidney problems, etc.

In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.

Cytology is the study of cells, especially the study used to screening cancer cells in human body. Cancer is the leading cause of death in women. Several women may have cancer cells and not being aware. It’s recommended that every woman should start screening from the age of 21 and check periodically once in 3 years. An early detection can save many lives, please consult your doctor for further details.

The investigations in the area are Pap smear, FNAC, and Human Papilloma Virus.

In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.

Microbiology is the study of disease causing agents. These agents are called micro-organisms or microbes. There are four kinds of micro-organisms that cause infectious disease; bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses.

These agents if not detected on time in body fluids could result in serious organ failures and breakdown of the body functions.

Investigations in this area include Urine cultures, Stool cultures, Wound examinations and other cultures and sensitivity tests.

In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.

Histopathology is the study of diseased cells and tissues. Investigations in the field require a minor collection of small tissues/ fluids to detect the disease or courses of the disease.

deIn order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.

Molecular biology is a study of science that covers biology, chemistry and genetics to detect a disease or a disease process.

Many courses of diseases may not be detected with the simpler chemical tests but can be identified through these advance investigations.

Investigations include HIV, Genetics/DNA screening, Hepatitis C core antigen and other advance investigations.

Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is a branch of clinical biochemistry that specializes in the measurement of medication concentrations in blood. Its main focus is on drugs with a narrow therapeutic range, i.e. drugs that can easily be under – or overdosed. TDM is aimed at improving patient care by individually adjusting the dose of drugs for which clinical experience have shown it improved outcome in general.

In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your treating doctor or walk-in into one of our facilities to seek further information on all the tests available.
