What is Haematology?

Haematology is the study of blood and blood disorders that is usually done by Haematologists and Hematopathologists who are highly trained and specialized in identifying diseases of the blood and blood components which include blood and bone marrow cells. Haematological tests can help diagnose conditions like anaemia, blood infections, haemophilia, blood-clotting disorders, and leukaemia.

Who is a Haematologist?

Who is a Haematopathologist?

A hematopathologist is well versed in both anatomical and clinical pathology and has additional years of training in hematopathology. The haematopathologist focuses on the diagnosis of conditions of the haematopoietic and lymphocyte-rich tissues (organs and tissues like the lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus, and other lymphoid tissue which uses blood cells to perform their physiologic functions) by directly examining the tissues and blood in the laboratory.

What are the common haematology tests done?

  • Haematocrit red blood cell volume (HCT)
  • Haemoglobin concentration (HB)
  • Differential white blood count

Our clinical microbiology laboratory services help in the accurate identification of infectious diseases caused by microorganisms like aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, fungus, parasites, virus and mycobacteria. The specimen (blood, urine, nasal/throat swab, saliva) received from the patient is studied using latest, advanced technologies and tests to identify the microorganism responsible for causing the disease. We also do serological tests for detecting any antibodies present in serum (a blood component) in response to an infectious disease.
