Department of Laboratory


Sound reasoning is essential for every diagnosis, and doctors worldwide depend on laboratory medicine for accurate and verified diagnoses. Laboratory medicine uses scientific techniques to analyse materials and provide important insights into diseases. It is the foundation of precision healthcare and correct diagnosis. It is crucial for the identification of diseases in both groups and individuals. The identification of environmental pollutants like lead also requires laboratory testing.
