Chemistry and Special Chemistry
The Routine Clinical Chemistry for blood and other body fluids to detect the health status of patients. We conduct tests Enzymes, Substrates, Electrolytes, Proteins, Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Drugs of Abuse etc. Latest international technology coupled with digital bidirectional interface promises accurate, reliable and timely results.
The Special Chemistry Department of One Care Diagnostics Centre provides high complexity, non-automated, biochemical testing. In contrast to automated, general chemistry assays, special chemistry testing involves more complex procedures encompassing the pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical testing phases. Unusual samples and atypical processing procedures, complex and state-of-the-art analytical methods, multiplexed analyses, and tests requiring complex interpretation(s), are common in the Special Chemistry Laboratory. Testing includes protein electrophoresis and immunofixation, heavy metal analysis, biochemical genetics, infectious disease and autoimmune serology, sweat testing, intra-operative PTH, fatal defect marker testing, and immunosuppressive drug measurements. The Special Chemistry laboratory performs testing for a variety of endocrine disorders by testing analytes such as Testosterone, Cortisol, Insulin, c-peptide, thyroglobulin, Parathyroid Hormone, and Haemoglobin A1c. The laboratory performs testing necessary for diagnosis and monitoring of a number of inherited genetic disorders such as: haemoglobinopathies like Thalassemia, Cystic Fibrosis, Phenylketonuria, and Methylmalonic Acidemia (MMA).The laboratory also performs testing necessary for the diagnosis and monitoring of Plasma Cell Myeloma like Protein electrophoresis, B2M and different Radiological interventions.
