The Laboratory Medicine department at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre provides round-the-clock phlebotomy and laboratory services for all our in-patients and well as out-patients. The highlight of this department is that it’s fully equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure so that most of the samples are processed in-house and do not require to be sent to an external laboratory for testing. This effectively reduces our turn-around time for processing samples and providing quality and precise reports to all our patients. The experience and expertise of doctors and support staff in various specialties helps us to maintain the highest quality standards in reporting.

Technology & Infrastructure

We have a dedicated Laboratory and Blood Bank space of 10,000 sq ft at our premises; in addition to that we have a designated central access area to receive and distribute samples to various sections. We also have UPS system installed for all major equipment and have automation of all diagnostic tests. The laboratory design and quality standards are in place for national and international accreditation.

Highlights:
  • All samples are transported via Pneumatic chutes; fully-automated sample sorting, de-capping and archiving
  • Centralised temperature monitoring system; dedicated walk-in cold storage for proper preservation of reagents and samples.
  • Comprehensive lab equipment for pre-analytical automation, Biochemistry and Immunoassay, Special Chemistry, Haematology, etc.
Equipment Highlights
  • Pre-analytical Automation: For sorting all the samples in the central laboratory; also for decapping the tubes as per requirement and archiving the test samples after all the diagnostic tests have been run.
  • Biochemistry & Immunoassay: Fully automated integrated analysers with a high throughput in addition to standalone analysers. The immunoassay analysers will function on the modern principle of Electrochemiluminescence.
  • Special Chemistry: Nephelometer, Automated Electrophoresis systems, Automated Allergy systems, Automated ELISA system & neonatal screening program.
  • Haematology: Advanced automation with modern cell counters, integrated slide preparation and staining; state-of-the-art Flow Cytometer, fully automated Coagulometer and Multiplate analyser for platelet functional analysis.
  • Microbiology: Vitek MS for rapid identification of microorganisms, Automated Streaking system, Continuous Monitoring Blood Culture system, Automated TB culture & sensitivity system, fully automated antibiotic susceptibility system with recording of MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration) and fully automated Gram, AFB staining system.
  • Histopathology: Fully automated tissue processing system, automated tissue embedding and microtome, Automated staining system – both routine and immunochemistry, Automated Liquid based cytology system and Cryostat for frozen sections.
  • Molecular Biology: Automated systems for rapid diagnosis of Tuberculosis and other diseases.
  • Clinical Pathology: Fully automated urine analyser (which performs urine chemistry and microscopy on one platform) along with a fully automated semen analyser.
