Department of Biochemistry
The Biochemistry Lab is located in the building of Asian Institute Of Gastroenterology Basic Sciences. This laboratory provides 24 hr diagnostic facilities. A total of nearly 250 blood samples from two intensive care units, different wards and OPDs are processed everyday. In the clinical chemistry Lab which works round the clock, emergency investigations like arterial blood gas analysis, blood sugar, urea, Lipid profile, Renal function test etc., are being done using automated machines. A monthly turnover of approximately 25,000 tests is enough to show the efficiency of the Lab.
The Laboratory is registered under External Quality Control Programme conducted by Randox Laboratories U.K and Twin cities association of Biochemist's – Inter Laboratory immunoassay comparision programme (TAB – IICP) for hormones and tumor markers
