Immunopath houses a lot of departments that perform different kind of tests. Each lab has its own chief scientists who ensures accurate results and total quality control for each test that is done.
In this medical specialty we are mainly concerned with the study of blood and blood-forming tissues. Our hematologists are full trained to completely and accurately study and diagnose blood disorders such as leukemia, anemia, and hemophilia, as well as diseases of the organs that produce blood, including the lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen.
We use blood tests to diagnose a variety of disorders and diseases. Of particular importance are blood tests that provide information about the cellular components of a patient's blood. The most common test, called a full blood count (FBC), indicates the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets in a given unit of blood. We examine blood samples using state of the art machines to identify abnormal blood cells and diagnose blood diseases. In addition to testing for blood diseases, we may also be called on to diagnose other types of disorders, such as hepatitis C. Here is the full list of tests for that department.
Our serology department leads in the science and study of body fluids, for the purpose of detecting illness. This department gets its title from the serum, a clear, yellowish, cell-free fluid portion of the blood. We most often deal with the analysis of reactions between antigens and antibodies in the blood and body tissues. These foreign substances that (antigens), when introduced into the body of humans or animals, cause the production of specific antibodies of the immune system that act primarily as a defense against invasion by these foreigners.
Antigens are found in many substances, including viruses and bacteria, reptile and insect venoms, and even allergens such as pollen. We major in detecting the cause of an unknown infection by identifying the presence of specific antibodies in the blood serum of a patient. We are very good at detecting these antibodies with an astounding precision. Here is the full list of tests for that department.
Our microbiology department study microscopic organisms or microbes and involve many fields of science in biology and medicine. We study bacteria and other microorganisms such as archaea, protozoa, algae, fungi, viruses, and microscopic parasites. Our microbiologists use tools from biochemistry, as well as microscopes and other technologies. Areas of research include the structures, functions, chemistry, and ecology of microorganisms, as well as their disease-causing or beneficial properties and effects. Our business comes from many applications in medicine, chemistry, industry, biotechnology, agriculture, and food production. Here is the full list of tests for that department.
In this department, biochemistry, we study substances found in living organisms, and chemical reactions underlying life processes. We employ sciences from both chemistry and biology to understand the structure and behavior of biomolecules. These are the carbon-containing compounds that make up the various parts of the living cell and carry out the chemical reactions that enable it to grow, maintain and reproduce itself, and use and store energy.
A vast array of biomolecules is present in the cell. The structure of each biomolecule determines in what chemical reactions it is able to participate, and hence what role it plays in the cell's life processes. Among the most important classes of biomolecules are nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. One major aim of our biochemistry department is to understand metabolism well enough to predict and control changes that occur in cells. We yielded such benefits as treatments for many metabolic diseases, and administering of antibiotics to combat bacteria, and methods to boost industrial and agricultural productivity. Here is the full list of tests for that department.
We offer many tests to physicians, patients and any other entities that require laboratory diagnostics run. These are yielded from the above departments and fully make up our diagnostics services as Immunopath. See the full list of tests that we do.
