DIVISION OF MICROBIOLOGY

Division of Microbiology, has pivotal role in diagnosis of Infectious Diseases, with assigned areas for Bacteriology, Mycology, Myco-bacteriology and Serology (Bacterial and Viral Serology) studies.
Detection of specific antibodies produced against different infecting organisms are identified by most sensitive techniques like Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent assay (ELISA) and auto immune disease diagnosis are carried out by newer and modern techniques.

  • Semi automated Protein Analyzer – Genius PA- 54
  • Automated Blood Culture System from Bact/Alert 3D 60
We are recognised as Integrated Counseling and Testing Center (ICTC).

DIVISION OF HISTOPATHOLOGY

The Division is running under the supervision of experienced Pathologist and competent Technicians. We are using the advanced microtomes (Leica Manual Rotary Microtome 2125) & microscope (Leica – DM-500).
FNAC, Exfoliative Cytology and Cervical smears are routinely performed.

BLOOD BANK

Our full-fledged, round the clock Blood Bank ensure availability of sufficient quantity of safe blood using state of the art technology for transfusion to patients, under the close supervision of qualified Medical Officer with a team of competent technicians.
All donations are monitored by automatic blood collection monitor . All blood units are screened for infectious diseases by using modern instruments and technologies like ELISA & Matrix Gel Systems.
