A fully equipped computerised laboratory provides 24x7 services under stringent external and internal quality controls.

Key sub-sections offer a wide range of diagnostic testing:

Biochemistry: Equipped with semi automated biochemistry analyser, fully automated electrolyte analyser and fully automated blood gas analyser. Routine tests include lipid profiles, liver function tests, cardiac function profiles, etc. Special examinations such as serum calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and uric acid, and hormone profiles are also available.

Clinical Pathology: Conducts routine urine, stool, semen and body fluid analysis.

Haematology: Uses fully automated analyser for complete blood counts as well as a full range of haematology tests.

Microbiology: Performs aerobic, microaerophilic, anaerobic and fungus cultures of all specimens.

Serology: An Elisa reader and automatic Elisa well washer are used to test blood for HIV and Hepatitis B and C. Other serological tests are also available.

Cytology: Offers fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and other examinations of any sample.

Histopathology: Fully equipped with automatic tissue processor, microtome and automated knife sharpener to handle all histopathology examinations.

Blood Bank: The licensed blood bank (RAJ 1874) attached to the pathology laboratory is a life support for accident victims in the hilly terrain in and around Mount Abu. It also serves surgical and anaemia patients. Since the Global Hospital Blood Bank mainly relies on voluntary blood donations, donor motivation is given special attention. Stringent procedures - including the screening of blood donors - ensure compliance with regulations controlling the supply of safe blood. Mandatory reporting procedures are also adhered to.
