The Department of Laboratory Medicine at Sagar Hospital Jayanagar is an ISO 15189 - NABL Accreditated laboratory with well equipped and manned by experienced Consultants, supervisors and technologists, functioning round the clock. The laboratory handles all disciplines of laboratory medicine and enforces a rigid control on quality of tests being done and reported. A fast and accurate laboratory report is the need of any patient/doctor and this laboratory system is designed to follow this norm – with enhanced responsiveness to clarity/ ratify reports and provide additional services that may be necessary.
The laboratory offers an extensive range of manual and automation facilities for investigation in the field of Clinical Biochemistry, Hematology, Clinical Pathology, Histopathology, Immunoserology, Microbiology, Molecular pathology and Transfusion Medicine. In the Laboratory, all patient samples are bar coded with unique identification numbers. The laboratory equipments are interfaced with Hospital information system where the clinician in the ward/opd has access to order tests and view the results of investigations. This laboratory has dedicated Quality Manager whose job is to monitor internal quality, inter laboratory quality assurance and external quality assurance.
 
The Clinical Biochemistry laboratory is well equipped with the latest state of the art technology, to perform not only routine clinical biochemical tests for patient care but also a wide variety of super specialized investigations, such as Tumor markers, Cardiac markers, Sepsis markers, Immunoglobulin’s, Therapeutic drug monitoring, Protein electrophoresis, Prenatal screening tests and Drugs of abuse testing,  To name a few sophisticated equipments, we have Beckman Coulter Synchron CX9 PRO and Siemens Dimension RxL Max a fully automatic random access auto analyzer capable of doing Spectrophotometric, Immunoturbidimetric and Ion selective electrodes for analysis of various analytes. Siemens Advia Centaur CP and Siemens Immulite 1000, an automatic immunoassay analyzers with latest Chemiluminescence technology, to analyze tumor markers, cardiac markers and hormones. Roche Cobas b 121 Blood Gas and electrolyte analyzers, Beckman’s Appraise paragon Electrophoresis with Densitometer, for serum protein electrophoresis, hemoglobin electrophoresis and immunofixation electrophoresis, Riele Photometer-5010 UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, Bio Rad D-10 HPLC equipment for the estimation of glycosylated hemoglobin-HbA1C percent and Siemens Turbitimer for special protein assays. Using these systems, Biochemical analysis inclusive of homogenous immunoassays and Chemiluminescence technology are being done within a very short period of time, requiring minimum sample volume. Special emphasis is being given on daily quality checks i.e.  Internal Quality control as well as External Quality control standards, by participating in International Quality control Programme run by Bio Rad Laboratories USA.The Quality control standards are maintained as per WHO recommendations. The reagents kits use for various analysis are approved by FDA and other statutory bodies.
 
Clinical pathology section performs complete analysis of urine, stool, semen, CSF and other body fluids including microscopy. Fully automated analyzer is used for analysis of urine.
 
Hematology department performs blood counts with automated analyzers like 5 part differential Sysmex XT 2000i with auto loader and three part differential Sysmex KX21.Use of automation enhances turn around time of report generation. Complete coagulation studies like PT, PTT, Fibrinogen, and F.D.P & D-Dimer are done using automated Amax Destiny plus and semi automated coagulometer, to help the clinician in monitoring the patients. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is done by complete automation to reduce the time. Due importance is given to Quality of the results by entering into internal and external quality control programmes.
 
Histopathology and Cytology section deals with surgically removed tissue specimen which are processed stained and examined, aiding the diagnosis of various diseases like malignant and nonmalignant lesions. Cytology examinations are done with the help of Cytospin and detect malignant cells in CSF and other body fluids. Fine needle aspiration is a simple procedure done on out patient basis which helps in diagnosis of various diseases and limits surgical intervention.
