Hematology, is the branch of laboratory medicine concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to the blood. This includes the study of blood cells and its components, such as hemoglobin, and other blood proteins. This laboratory science also involves treatment of diseases that affect blood cell production as well as the mechanism of coagulation.
The laboratory work that goes into the study of blood is frequently performed by medical technologists. Their routine work mainly includes whole blood analysis through use of hematology analyzers equipped with modern technology. In addition, viewing of blood films and bone marrow slides under the microscope, interpreting various hematological test results and blood clotting test results are also routinely done in this section.
Our Hematology Section offers the following laboratory tests:
|Complete Blood Count (CBC)||Erythrocyte Sedimentation (ESR)||Coagulation Tests:|
|Reticulocyte Count||Bleeding Time||Prothrombin Time (PT)|
|Peripheral Blood Smear (PBS)||Clotting Time||Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT|
Clinical chemistry, also known as chemical pathology, clinical biochemistry or medical biochemistry is the area of laboratory medicine that is generally concerned with the chemical analysis of physiologically important substances present in the human body.
This section demonstrates the presence of enzymes and hormones in serum, urine and other body fluids that may determine pathological conditions through laboratory tests performed in state-of the-art chemistry analyzers.
Our Clinical Chemistry Section offers the following laboratory tests:
|Lipid Profile||Liver Profile||Glucose||OGTT (50g, 75g, 100g|
|Total Cholesterol||SGPT/ALT||Fasting Blood Sugar||Electrolytes|
|(HDL, LDL, VLDL)||SGOT/AST||Random Blood Sugar||BUN|
|Total Bilirubin (Direct Bilirubin,|
|CLINICAL MICROSCOPY||IMMUNOHEMATOLOGY/BLOOD BANK|
|Clinical Microscopy is the branch of laboratory medicine that deals with the physical, chemical and microscopic examination of urine, stool and other body fluids.||Immunohematology, more commonly known as blood banking is the branch of laboratory medicine which studies antigen-antibody reactions and analogous antigen-antibody reactions and analogous phenomena as they relate to the pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of blood disorders.|
|This section of the laboratory routinely performs urinalysis – the physical, chemical, and microscopic examination of urine which involves number of tests to detect and measure various compounds that pass through the urine.||The blood bank is where blood units and other blood products are processed and distributed for transfusion. Medical technologists perform blood bank procedures such as: blood typing, blood crossmatching and antibody identification necessary to guarantee safe blood transfusion practices.|
|In addition, the section also performs fecalysis – the physical and microscopic examination of stool which identifies presence of medically significant microorganisms that confirms diagnosis of parasitism.||Our Blood Bank Unit offers the following laboratory tests:|
|Our Clinical Microscopy Section offers the following laboratory tests:||ABO/Rh Typing (Blood Typing)|
|Fecalysis||Direct Antihuman globulin (AHG)/Direct Coombs|
|Fecal Occult Blood Test||Indirect Antihuman globulin (AHG)/Indirect Coombs|
|Cell Count of Body Fluids|
|Serology is the branch of laboratory medicine that involves scientific study and analysis of plasma serum and other bodily fluids. In clinical laboratory practice, the term usually refers to the diagnostic identification of antibodies in the serum. Such antibodies are typically formed in response to an infection.||Histopathology is the branch of laboratory medicine which refers to the microscopic examination of tissues in order to study the manifestations of diseases. Specifically, in clinical medicine, histopathology refers to the examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen by a pathologist, after the specimen has been processed and histological sections have been placed onto glass slides.|
|Clinical microbiology deals with the interrelation of macro- and microorganisms under normal and pathological conditions and in the dynamics of a pathological process with an account of the treatment till the clinical and/or complete recovery is presented.||Our Histopathology Section offers the following laboratory.|
|Our Microbiology Section offers the following laboratory tests:||· Papanicolau’s Smear (Pap Smear)|
|· Gram Stain||·Tissue Biopsy|
|· AFB Stain||·Cytology|
|· KOH Smear||·Cell Block|
|Bacterial Cultures on:||· Frozen Section|
|-Other Body Fluids|
