The department of Laboratory Medicine performs a wide range of qualitative diagnostic tests for both inpatients and outpatients at affordable cost. We have the following branch of services;
The blood tests conducted within a health assessment are interpreted in conjunction with a clinical examination, previous medical history and current medications. Biochemistry tests measure the chemical substances carried by the blood. Key tests indicate the level of functioning of the liver and kidneys. A basic metabolic panel measures sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), magnesium, creatinine, glucose, and sometimes calcium. Tests focusing on holesterol levels can determine LDL and HDL cholesterol levels, as well as triglyceride levels.
The Hematology section of the laboratory is very well equipped with state-of-the-the-art instruments. Even routine blood counts are performed on highly sophisticated cell counters which provide numerous parameters on every single sample.
The histopathology section of the laboratory provides services for routine and specialized processing of all surgical and cytological specimens.
Microbiology section of the laboratory provides state-of-art services for diagnosis of infectious diseases - bacterial, mycobacteria, and fungal, parasitic, and viral infections.
