Outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment from the world’s top manufacturers, this unit carries out a variety of tests such as CBC (which indicates the counts of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets), bone marrow biopsies, PTT, lymphoma tests, etc. 

When a patient brings in blood bags from the blood bank using the form that was filled by his physician, the laboratory technician conducts a cross-matching and Rh factor testing to ensure blood compatibility. 

Biochemistry Unit

Also known as the clinical chemistry unit, it is equipped with high-precision, high-performance devices from internationally renowned manufacturers. These devices carry out blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c tests, as well as the testing of cardiac enzymes, lipids, calcium levels, etc. 

We’re proud to announce that our biochemistry unit is ISO certified.
