The Department of Clinical Laboratory performs quantitative and qualitative analysis and interpretation of patient specimens, including tissue, blood, urine, and other body fluids. We provide crucial pathology and laboratory testing services as a vital element of diagnosis, treatment planning and monitoring for every disease from the most common to the esoteric.
Serologic tests are blood tests that look for antibodies, which can involve a number of laboratory techniques. Different types of serologic tests can diagnose various disease conditions, but all of them focus on proteins made by your immune system. Your body produces antibodies in response to antigens. If testing shows no antibodies, it indicates you don’t have a current or past infection. The testing procedure is quick, and the pain level for most people is not severe. Results that show there are no antibodies in the blood sample are normal. Our Serology laboratory is fully equipped to support the needs of patients from across Dubai and the UAE.
Our Clinical Biochemistry clinic provides a broad array of routine and specialised clinical laboratory testing services on blood, urine and other body fluids. The laboratories maintain a comprehensive selection of routine, high-volume automated clinical biochemistry tests as well as a diverse menu of serological tests, endocrine/hormone analysis, tumour markers, and others. Our biochemistry laboratories are fully equipped to support the needs of patients from across Dubai and the UAE.
Additional specialized testing includes:
- Therapeutic drug monitoring
- Toxicological testing
- Trace metals analysis
- Kidney stone analysis
- Serum protein analyses
- Other specialized chemical analysis.
The Microbiology section offers comprehensive testing for patients with infectious diseases. Our high quality, state-of-the-art diagnostic services, combined with readily available consultations with pathologists and laboratory scientists have made us a national referral centre for microbiology testing. Advanced tests are performed to ensure the development and evaluation of several innovative molecular tests for the rapid identification and characterization of infectious agents. Our microbiology laboratory is fully equipped to support the needs of patients from across Dubai and the UAE.
Our Hematology department performs analysis of the cellular elements of blood, bone marrow, body fluids and lymphoid tissues, with a focus on neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematologic disorders. In addition to high-volume automated hematology laboratory tests (e.g. CBCs), tests performed in our laboratory include a wide variety of specialised studies such as hemoglobin variant analysis and red cell membrane disorders. Our hematology laboratory is fully equipped to support the needs of patients from across Dubai and the UAE.
