Clinical Biochemistry is the area of clinical pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of blood chemicals and body fluids.

These investigations enable you to know whether you are diabetic or have any organ related abnormalities. In routine health check you may be required to undergo investigations such as:

  • Fasting blood sugar,
  • Lipid profile,
  • Lipoprotein studies,
  • Liver function tests
  • Renal function test,
  • Cardiac markers

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

Investigations in this field screens for conditions like low blood levels, increased blood level (polycythemia) and blood abnormalities (leukemia).

These investigations also help in ascertaining infections and immunity status of your body.

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 body’s immune status. In other words it informs you about the ability of your body system to protect against 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 metabolic functions of the body. 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, thyroidism, etc.

The investigations in this area include hormonal profiles for fertility studies, insulin testing, growth hormone tests, thyroid function test, etc.

Cytology is the study of cells; it involves diagnosing diseases by looking at single cells and small clusters of cells. It’s an important part of diagnosing some types of cancer.

The investigations in this area include Pap smear (for cervical cancer screening), Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC).

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.

Medical 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, 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  diseases or causes of diseases.

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.

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.
