Serology is the scientific study of serum and other bodily fluids. In practice, the term usually refers to the diagnostic identification of antibodies in the serum. Such antibodies are typically formed in response to an infection against other foreign proteins. Serological tests may be performed for diagnostic purposes when an infection is suspected, in rheumatic illnesses, and in many other situations, such as checking an individual's blood type. Serology blood tests help to diagnose patients with certain immune deficiencies associated with the lack of antibodies . There are several serology techniques that can be used depending on the antibodies being studied. These include: ELISA, agglutination, precipitation, complement-fixation, and fluorescent antibodies etc.
Some serological tests are not limited to blood serum, but can also be performed on other bodily fluids such as semen and saliva, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) which may contain antibodies.

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. Much of biochemistry deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, which provide the structure of cells and perform many of the functions associated with life. The chemistry of the cell also depends on the reactions of smaller molecules and ions. Biochemistry usually measures sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), magnesium, creatinine, glucose, and sometimes calcium, cholesterol, LDL and cholesterol levels, as well as triglyceride levels etc.

Tests related to Biochemistry we offer are:
Culture and sensitivity
Culture and sensitivity in microbiology refers to laboratory techniques that allow a disease-causing microorganism to be identified, and that determine which antibiotics are sensitive to (effective against) the identified microorganism. Microbe culturing and susceptibility testing offers information to help make appropriate decisions. The availability of such information from laboratory testing can be of life-saving assistance to doctors, but can also result in excessive reliance on testing when a simpler, broader approach to treatment may be more efficient.

Hematology, also spelled hematology, is the branch of medicine concerned with the study of the cause, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to blood. It involves treating diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, such as blood cells, hemoglobin, blood proteins, bone marrow, platelets, blood vessels, spleen, and the mechanism of coagulation. Such diseases might include hemophilia, blood clots, other bleeding disorders and blood cancers such as leukemia, myeloma, and lymphoma. The laboratory work that goes into the study of blood is frequently performed by a medical technologist or medical laboratory scientist.

The tests we offer related to hematology are:
Histopathology refers to the microscopic examination of tissue in order to study the manifestations of disease. Specifically, in clinical medicine, histopathology refers to the examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen by a pathologist, after the specimen has been processed and histological sections have been placed onto glass slides. The tests we offer are:

Hormone / ELISA
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is a test that uses antibodies and color change to identify a substance. ELISA is a popular format of "wet-lab" type analytic biochemistry assay that uses a solid-phase enzyme immunoassay (EIA) to detect the presence of a substance, usually an antigen, in a liquid sample or wet sample.
The ELISA has been used as a diagnostic tool in medicine. ELISA or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, is a method used in the laboratory to aid in the diagnosis of a wide range of diseases. This test is performed on blood or urine and is used for measuring the amount of a particular protein or substance in these bodily fluids, such as infectious agents, allergens, hormones or drugs.
This test relies on the interaction between components of the immune system called antigens and antibodies. Antibodies are proteins produced by the body to identify and neutralise any foreign substances that may be encountered, such as viruses and bacteria.
