    • CEA (General Cancer Marker & Lower Digestive System),
    • CA 15-3 (Reproductive System - Cervical),

Hematology Tests

Hematological tests can evaluate numerous conditions involving blood and its components. They can also be used to diagnose inflammation, anemia, infection, hemophilia, blood-clotting disorders, leukemia, and response to chemotherapy, among many other things. Let's take a look at some of these tests.

  • Full Blood Count (CBC)
  • Sedimentation Rate (ESR)
  • Indirect Combs Test
  • Sickling Test
  • Blood Grouping Test
  • CRP.

Serology Tests

Serologic tests are blood tests that look for antibodies in your blood. They can involve a number of laboratory techniques. Different types of serologic tests are used to diagnose various disease conditions. Serologic testing can diagnose multiple illnesses, including:

  • brucellosis, which is caused by bacteria
  • amebiasis, which is caused by a parasite
  • measles, which is caused by a virus
  • rubella, which is caused by a virus
  • HIV
  • syphilis
  • fungal infections

Microbiology tests

The main purpose of microbiology  is to assist in the diagnosis of infectious diseases. This starts when you come to our clinic  with certain signs and symptoms consistent with an infectious disease. Our resident physician will then order specific tests to clarify the presence of an infectious disease. These diseases can include those caused by bacteria (e.g., Group A streptococcus that may cause strep throat); those caused by viruses (e.g., influenza A that cause the flu); those caused by fungi (e.g., Candida, which may cause vaginal yeast infections); or those caused by parasites (e.g., Giardia, which may cause diarrhea). Specimens may be collected from a number of different sources, including blood, urine, and swab specimens of the throat.

Biochemistry

The main aim of biochemistry lab analysis is to provide qualitative and quantitative analysis of biological fluids such as blood, serum or plasma, urine, or tissues for specific chemical constituents or physiologic processes. The Routine Testing Unit performs standard specialized blood tests, such as:

  • Zinc blood levels
  • Lithium psychiatric drug levels
  • Pseudo choline esterase test for organophosphate poisoning
  • Blood test lipase test: this test is better for diagnosing pancreatitis than the amylase testBlood digoxin level
  • Acetaminophen drug level blood monitoring
  • Gentamicin blood level monitoring
  • Cardiovascular disease risk factors and HDL cholesterol monitoring.
  • Wide Range C-creactive protein (wr-CRP) levels can help diagnose an infection. Low levels of the protein indicate risk of cardiovascular disease. A level below 2 mg per liter indicates low risk, 2-3 mg per liter show moderate risk, and 3-5 mg per liter point to high risk.

Reproductive

This encompasses issues around reproductive health and infertility. Such tests could include :-

  • Lutenizing Hormone
  • Progesterone
  • Prolactin
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone
  • Testosterone
  • Estradiol
  • Semen Analysis
  • Semen Analysis Culture & Sensitivity

Diabetes

We usually conduct various types of tests to  make a diagnosis of prediabetes and diabetes. These include :

    • The HbA1C (A1C or glycosylated hemoglobin test) that  measures your average blood glucose control for the past two to three months. This test is more convenient because no fasting is required.
    • A fasting plasma glucose test requires fasting (nothing to eat or drink except water) for eight hours before the test
    • The oral glucose tolerance test that measures how well the body handles a standard amount of glucose.
