Quality Assurance

Quality assurance is a major concern of the department. It covers all aspects of laboratory functioning i.e. pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical; turn around time; maintenance of equipment; selection of tests & reagents; standardization & validation of tests before they are introduced; and training of personnel & Running of Quality Control and Participating EQAS programmed.

Microbiology

The microbiology laboratory aims at providing the reliable and quality based clinical laboratory services to patients constant upgradation of the laboratory to automation, reliable methods and strict quality assurance are the hall marks. Laboratory has experienced and skilled team to manage the quality and accuracy. The microbiology laboratory caters to the needs of the hospital as well as nearby small size laboratories.

Blood culture for aerobic bacteria, fungi and mycobacteria are done on automated system which detects the organisms from 3 hours onwards by continuous monitoring of the bottles. Identification and sensitivity of most of the organisms grown is done on automated system for accurate and reliable reports. Conventional culture for bacteria, fungi from clinical samples other than blood is done on appropriate media following international guidelines. Automated system for culture of Mycobacteria indicates positivity from seventh day onwards. Once culture positive, identification & sensitivity can be reported in approximately 7 days time. A variety of serological tests are performed in the department by conventional rapid card and line immunoassay methodologies. Laboratory’s main armory is its hold on quality and reliability. Special emphasis is being given on daily quality checks i.e internal quality control as well as External quality control standards. Laboratory participates in EQAS (External Quality Assurance Scheme)  run by IAMM (Indian Association of Medical Microbiologist) for constant checking and improvement in quality policies.

Department is actively involved in infection control activities, epidemiology and surceillance of hospital associated infection. Infection control guidelines for the hospital and antibiogram of various areas of the hospital are issued from time to time.

Biochemistry

The Biochemistry department is equipped with fully automated high precision state of the art equipments namely Dade Behring (Siemens) for biochemistry, Minividas (Biomerieux)for immunoassays Ilyte & Gem 3000 (Instrumentation Laboratory ) for electrolytes & blood gas respectively.
Department is managed by a fulltime Biochemist who is the quality manager as well. Apart from routine biochemistry parameters special hormones and cancer markers are also available on daily basis. We have introduced Vitamin D in the test menu which is also reported daily .
Well defined internal quality control system is established in order to ensure day to day report quality. Quality indicators are employed to assess the quality improvements. Timely scheduled calibration & PM of the equipment ensures smooth functioning ,reduction of breakdowns & thus achieve the established Turn Around Time(TAT) Department participates in the EQAS programme conducted by BIO-RAD for biochemistry & Immunoassay and stands excellent. Available tests in the department are as follows Routine tests KFT, LFT, Lipid profile, Diabetic profile, Hormone assays – fertility profile, thyroid profile, & Cancer markers etc.

Histopathology & Cytology

This  section  of  lab  holds  a  special  place  in  this  hospitals.  Where  all  the  surgical  specimens  are  sent  in  the  labs  for  an  accurate  diagnosis  and  its  further  management . Various tests facilities available in sections are:-

  • Small endoscopic biopsies like colonoscopic, EBUS-TBNA (Endobronchial ultrasounded transbronchial needle aspiration) and EUS-FNA (Endoscopic ultrasound guided FNA) are processed on the same day after fixation and reports are available on the very next day.
  • Fully automated tissue processor as well microtome for histopathology to cope up with the increasing load of samples and reports are available within in three days. PAP’s smear examination for quick screening of cervical cancers in female patients. Body fluids including exfoliative cytology BAL fluids and brush cytologies whether  bronchial  or  from  G.I  tract  are  processed  and  report  is  available  on  the very  same  day. CT  guided  and  USG  guided    trans  thoracic  and  transabdominal   FNAC s  to  reach  difficult  distant  deep  seated  lesions  and  diagnosis  is  available  on  the  very  same  day .
  • Preoperative / Intraoperative   scrappe  cytology , touch  and  imprint  smears  for  an  immediate  diagnosis. Histopath Lab is equipped with Automatic tissue processor, fully automated embedding station & very fine microtome with a team of well trained staff.Cytology is also done on all types of material including, various types of fluid for malignant cells (Pleural, Peritoneal, Pericardial and CSF)using cytospin for quality reporting. FNAC is routinely done on OPD/IPD patient by the pathologist, CT/Ultra Sound guided FNAC is also done for intra abdominal/intra thoracic masses. PAP screening is also routinely done. All routine stains and immuno histo chemistry is done for typing of malignancy & confirmation of fungal/Protozal/Bacterial infection.
