The main focus of the department is to provide high quality service and improve standards
The efficiency of the laboratory in meticulously following internationally recommended techniques, adhering to various elaborate inbuilt control protocols and guidelines reflects in the accurate test results.
All samples, particularly CSF and body fluids, are investigated in detail. This has helped us to detect rare diseases such as cryptococcal meningitis, tubercular brain abscess, disseminated nocardiosis, cardiac hydatidosis and systemic histoplasmosis.
State-of-the-art techniques :
Molecular Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases
The nucleic acid sequence based assays (NASBA) are being done for the following: -
The earliest detection of the reactivation of CMV or Tuberculosis shall be known by detecting its messenger RNA in almost any sample. This assay is better than PCR by not amplifying the nucleic acid sequences from dead organisms and has minimal threat of carryover contamination.
