The department of Biochemistry is headed by Mr. I. H. Winston Joshua (D.M.L.T.) and handles a large amount of material from the hospital. A major stride in the growth of the department was the purchase of an auto-analyser in 2004 to facilitate the speed and accuracy of biochemical diagnostics provided in the hospital.

Some of the more advanced equipment in the department includes:

  • Fully automated Biochemistry Analyser, Olympus AU400
  • Fully Automated Biochemistry Analyser COBAS c311
  • Electro Chemiluminescence Analyser COBAS e411
  • Semi-Auto Analyser machines – STAT FAX 2000
  • Electrolytes Analysers – ECS 2000
  • Flame photometer 129 – Systronics
  • Nycocard Readers – Axis Shield

In addition to routine biochemical investigations, a few special investigations done in the lab are mentioned below:
