Histopathology offers services for processing surgical specimens & biopsies.The cytopathology laboratory handles both gynaecological and non gynaecological specimens sent for cytology. About half of these are gynaeclogical `PAP smears’ for early detection of cervix cancer.Fine needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is also carried out for all palpable swellings in the body as the first line of investigative workup before a surgical biopsy.
The microbiology lab is well equipped with sophisticated systems for Blood Culture ( while with conventional methods it is 6%) and ATB (Automated Testing in Bacteriology). Antimicrobial susceptibility testing is performed both by disc diffusion & at MIC breakpoints. Rapid results for ICU and urgent cases are available within 6-8 hrs instead of 24 hrs by conventional methods.Apart from routine isolation & identification of all clinical samples, aerobic, anaerobic, fungal & mycobacterial cultures are also done. Smears for Acid Fast Bacilli are done on all samples routinely at no extra cost.Routinely microbiology surveillance of Operation Theatres & high risk areas is carried out. Definite policies for use of antibiotics, disinfectants & waste disposal are laid down by the Infection Control Committee and followed regularly.
In addition to routine tests like Widal, VDRL, RA, CRP, etc., infection and autoimmune disease serology is performed in this lab. Serological investigations for "difficult to grow" pathogens as Mycoplasma, Leptospira, Pneumocystis, Cryptosporidium, Cryptococcus neoformans, Helicobacter pylori, Dengue, etc are performed by Enzyme Immuno Assays, Immuno-fluorescence & Immunochromatographic techniques.Elisa readers facilitate accurate results to ensure good sensitivity & specificity.
