Central Laboratory

The clinical laboratory attached to every hospital plays a vital role in the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of patients. In the era of evidence-based medicine, laboratory evaluation of the patient plays a major role in the establishment of a diagnosis. Hence, laboratory diagnosis has gained a prominent place in medical services, and therefore, lab services form an integral part of health care delivery.

The department works 24×7 and is equipped with state-of-the-art auto-analyzers that are interfaced with the hospital information system. The samples are scanned by a dedicated barcode scanner and processed in two fully automated Beckman Coulter AU480 analyzers to quantify all basic chemistry analytes, including enzymes and emergency cardiac markers. Two Bio-Rad D10 analyzers are available to analyze HbA1c based on the HPLC method. A VITROS hormone analyzer was procured to estimate thyroid hormone levels and other hormones and tumor markers based on the advanced technique of enhanced chemiluminescence.
