Hematology & Hemostasis

Hematology and Hemostasis Department

It offers a wide range of tests including complete blood counts, differentials, ESR and morphological examination of peripheral blood for diagnosis of anemia and other benign as well as malignant hematological disorders. The department uses the SYSMEX hematology analyzers and STAGO- Compact Max Coagulation Analyzer.

Blood Bank & Transfusion Service

Blood Bank and Transfusion Service Unit

This unit offers all the clotting factor assays including an extensive menu of tests for hemostasis and thrombosis, bleeding profiles and screening tests, Factor analysis, coagulation markers and thrombotic risks.


Microbiology Department

Our microbiology department is well equipped to provide fundamental diagnostic testing in Bacteriology, Virology, Mycobacteriology, Mycology and Parasitology in addition to Molecular Biology. We use VITEK 2 Automated System for bacterial identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing and BACTEC Automated System with dual function for blood and TB culture.

Histopathology /Cytopathology

Histopathology /Cytopathology Department

Histopathology Unit:

It’s a specialized unit for the diagnosis of all surgical biopsy specimens in a variety of diseases as inflammatory, benign and malignant disorders.

Cytopathology Unit:

This unit specializes in the diagnosis of gynecological and non –gynecological diseases based on cytological examination of fluid material and smears, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC), ascitic and pleural fluid, urine and sputum specimens.
