Mycobacterial Laboratory

The late diagnosis of TB and delayed recognition of drug resistance have contributed to the dissemination of MDR-TB.

Mycobacterial laboratory assists in early detection of tuberculosis by reducing the laboratory turnaround time for reporting positive smear, culture, identification, and susceptibility results. The laboratory has been designed to respond in three ways:

  • Report results of acid-fast stains within 24 hours of receipt in the laboratory.
  • Detect growth of mycobacteria in liquid medium within 10 days of specimen receipt.
  • Identify Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates by the BACTEC NAP test within two to three weeks of specimen receipt.

Micro midget system is used for rapid identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli in pulmonary & extra-pulmonary specimens and study of sensitivity pattern.

Histopathology & Cytology

Histopathology & Cytology Department boasts of full automation and a team of Pathologists with excellent knowledge of Surgical Pathology & unique Liquid Based Cytology for body fluids and cervical smears, offering quality reports with one of the best Turn around Times.

Information Technology (IT)

Laboratory functioning is automated to the limits with bar coding, bidirectional interfacing and real time networking reducing manual interaction to a minimal – thereby drastically reducing human induced errors and delays. Sample status is uploaded real time on the Internet & reports can be collected online, instantly.
