Clinical Chemistry And Immunoassays
Clinical chemistry uses chemical processes to measure levels of chemical components in body fluids. The most common specimens tested in clinical chemistry are blood and urine. Many different tests exist in clinical chemistry, to evaluate different chemical components in blood or urine. Components may include blood glucose, electrolytes, enzymes, hormones, lipids (fats), other metabolic substances, and proteins.
An immunoassay is a test that relies on biochemistry to measure the presence and/or concentration of an analyte. The analyte can be in the form of large proteins or antibodies that a person has produced as a result of an infection.
Our key offerings in clinical chemistry and immunoassays include tests like diabetes profiles, lipid profiles (cholesterol related tests), hormonal assays, infectious markers, bone-related markers, markers of liver disease, infertility tests, nutritional deficiency tests and investigations for growth-related disorders.
Our department of clinical chemistry and immunoassays is the first such unit in the country to install a platform called the Roche Cobas 8000 which is the most accurate, sensitive, efficient and sophisticated equipment to conduct tests in these areas.
