  • Services Provided:

    Microbiology Services were initiated in 1992.The Department functions as a Clinical Microbiology Laboratory with a focus on the clinical and lab diagnosis of infectious diseases. All OPD samples for microbiological investigations are received upto 1:00 p.m. The tests are done on all working days. The Department receives approximately 5000-6000 blood samples and performs 11,000-12,000 investigations every month.

    The Tests performed in the laboratory include Aerobic Bacterial Culture and Sensitivity, Fungal Culture and KOH preparation, Mycobacterial Culture and ZN staining including Slit smear for Lepra Bacilli, Parasitology including Microscopic Examination of Stool and Modified AFB Staining, Malaria Ag, Serology and Immunology tests like Widal, ASO, RA, CRP, hSCRP, VDRL/STS, Typhidot, TORCH panel, Hepatitis markers(HBsAg,HBc Total/IgM, Anti HBs, HBe Ag/Ab, Anti HCV), Immunity Markers (ANA/ANF, ds DNA, SMA, MA), Total IgE, TB Serology, Cysticercosis IgG, Cryptococcal Ag, Meningitis Ag , Virology ( HIV I &II Antibody, Dengue Serology IgG/IgM), and Hospital Infection Control Programme including Air sampling, Water Cultures, Disinfectant testing, Environmental Cultures, Biological Indicators and Catheter Tip Cultures.

    The department is computerized and reporting is also being done on the hospital information system. The laboratory puts up internal quality controls and also participates in EQAS programme for Serological testing for Syphilis (VDRL/RPR) being conducted by WHO, GASP, SEAR RRL, Regional STD Centre, Safardurjung Hospital, N.Delhi.
