Laboratory

The Laboratory Department at Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute offers an extensive array of diagnostic tests covering various medical disciplines. These include haematology, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, clinical, cytology, histopathology, and molecular diagnostics. This diverse range of tests enables the accurate diagnosis and monitoring of a wide spectrum of medical conditions.
The department is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and technology. This includes automated analyzers, advanced imaging systems, and molecular diagnostic platforms. These tools not only enhance the accuracy and efficiency of testing but also enable a wide range of specialized assays. Additionally, the Laboratory places a strong emphasis on quality assurance. Rigorous protocols and quality control measures are in place to ensure the accuracy and reliability of test results. This commitment to quality extends to every step of the testing process, from specimen collection and processing to result reporting.
The Laboratory operates with a sense of urgency, recognizing the importance of timely test results in patient care. Efforts are made to minimize turnaround times, particularly for urgent or critical tests. This swift reporting of results allows for prompt diagnosis and treatment, contributing to improved patient outcomes.

Key Functions of the Laboratory Department:

  • Haematology: Haematology encompasses the study of blood and its disorders. The Laboratory conducts a large volume and  range of tests to assess blood cell counts, coagulation factors, and various haematological parameters. These tests play a crucial role in diagnosing conditions like anaemia, leukemia, parasites ,sepsis ,bleeding and coagulation disorders, thalassemia / hemoglobinopathy screening.
  • Biochemistry: Biochemical tests analyze substances present in  blood and body fluids like blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. These tests provide valuable information about organ function, metabolic status, and the presence of specific biomarkers. They are instrumental in diagnosing and monitoring conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, and liver disorders.
  • Microbiology: The microbiology section focuses on the identification and characterization of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. This is critical for diagnosing infections and guiding appropriate treatment. The Laboratory employs various techniques, including culture and sensitivity tests, to identify the causative agents of infectious diseases. Microbiology lab has state of art diagnostic equipments including BIOFIRE,  likes galactomanan & GeneExpert for  diagnosis of TB. 
  • Immunology: Immunology tests assess the body's immune response. This includes tests for antibodies, autoimmune markers, and specific antigens. These tests are vital in diagnosing immune-related conditions such as autoimmune diseases, allergies, and infectious diseases.  Immunofluoresence for autoimmune disorder is benign performed. 
  • Cytology and Histopathology: Cytology involves the examination of individual cells to detect abnormalities, often utilized in cancer diagnosis. Histopathology, on the other hand, involves the examination of tissue specimens to identify structural changes indicative of disease. Both disciplines are essential in providing accurate diagnoses.  Lab handles large number of biopsy sample including trucut specimens, endoscopic biopsies  and radical specimens. Lab is equipped with fully automated tissue processers and automated strainers for routine screening .Crystat caters to needs of frozen sections. 
  • Clinical: The clinical pathology is involved in routine analysis of urine and fluid samples eq. CSF, Pleural fluid. IVI procedures requiring semen samples preparations are performed regularly.  Immunofluoresence studies for advanced neurology parameters and celiac disease detection are conducted along with regular studies of autoimmune disease parameters. 
  • Molecular Diagnostics: Molecular diagnostics involve the analysis of genetic material (DNA and RNA) to identify specific genetic markers or mutations associated with various diseases. This cutting-edge field plays a crucial role in diagnosing genetic disorders, infectious diseases, and certain types of cancer.

FAQ

A laboratory is a controlled environment where scientific experiments, measurements, and tests are conducted to gather data, analyse samples, and conduct research. In healthcare, clinical laboratories are facilities where medical tests are performed on patient samples to aid in diagnosis and treatment.

Clinical laboratories offer a wide range of services, including blood tests, urine analysis, microbiology tests, pathology examinations, genetic testing, and various other diagnostic procedures. They play a critical role in disease detection, monitoring, and management.

When you provide a sample (like blood, urine, or tissue), it is labeled, processed, and analyzed by trained laboratory professionals. Depending on the test, the sample may be examined under microscopes, subjected to chemical reactions, or undergo genetic analysis to generate relevant data.

Laboratory results are generally very accurate, but the accuracy depends on several factors, including the quality of the sample collected, the proficiency of the laboratory staff, and the precision of the testing methods used. Laboratories often have strict quality control measures in place to ensure accuracy.

The turnaround time for laboratory results varies depending on the type of test and the specific laboratory. Some tests, like simple blood counts, can be processed quickly, often within hours. More complex tests, such as genetic analysis or specialized cultures, may take several days or even weeks.
