Our clinical laboratory has the following equipments to enable us to provide the best possible accurate results for our patients.

ADVIA Centaur Immunoassay System

This is a fully automated random access, chemiluminescent immunoassay system that utilizes non isotopic chemiluminescence for greater sensitivity and precision than any other immunoassays.

A comprehensive menu of the assays performed using Siemens ADVIA CENTAUR XPT is provided below:-

Thyroid Function assay

  • Detection of Auto antibodies against Thyroglobulin
  • Free Thyroxine (FT4)
  • Free Tricodothyronine (FT3)
  • Thyroxine (T4)
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

Adrenal Function Assays

  • Cortisol (COR)

Cardiovascular Assays

  • Homocysteine (HCY)

Fertility Assays

  • Follicular Stimulating Hormone
  • Luteinizing Hormone
  • Prolactin
  • Beta HCG
  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Vitamin D3
  • Ferritin
Centaur testing unit
Hitachi analyser

HITACHI 902

It is a fully automated Clinical biochemistry analyzer used invitro. The profiles performed using these equipments are:-

  • Liver Function Tests
  • Lipid Profile
  • Renal Function Tests
  • Enzyme profile
  • Amylase
  • Lipase

BIO – RAD- D 10

The Bio-Rad D 10 hemoglobin testing system is a fully automated analyzer consisting of a single module that provides an integrated method for sample preparation, separation and determination of specific hemoglobin in whole blood.

The separation is based on the principle of HIGH PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY

Bio – Rad D 10 determines the following hemoglobin like HbA2, HbF, and HbA1C. In our lab we only assess the levels of HbA1C.

RAPID CHEM 744 – For Electrolyte profile

HORIBAABX

The 3 Part cell counter is a fully automated analyzer. The following assessments are performed with this analyzer.

  • Total White blood cells(WBC)
  • Total Red blood cells (RBC)
  • Hemoglobin
    • Differential count
    • Polymorph
    • Lymphocyte
    • Eosinophil
    • Monocyte
    • Basophil
    • Packed cell volume (PCV)
    • Platelet count
  • Packed cell volume (PCV)
  • Platelet count

The Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) is determined by WESTERGREN procedure by using single use pipettes
