Technology & Infrastructure

The department of medicine and blood bank are housed on a single floor, spread over 10,000 sq ft. The laboratory offers a wide range of routine and specialized testing services, including advanced molecular biology and genetic testing. All samples for testing are received via an automated pneumatic chute system, which allows for a safe and rapid transport of samples from collection room to the processing location. The samples are then automatically sorted and loaded on fully-automated analysers, with little manual intervention throughout. In addition, the availability of a centralized temperature monitoring system and a walk-in cold storage for preservation of reagents and samples, helps us maintain quality standards for national and international accreditation.
