Medical Microbiology is a dynamic science which deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. The causative agents of infectious diseases are bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. Over crowded settlements, malnutrition, poor hygienic practices contributes to high incidence of infectious diseases especially in developing countries. The department at Saroj Diagnostic Laboratory hosts an array of tests under different sections viz Immunology and Serology, Bacteriology, Antimicrobial susceptibility testing, Mycobacteriology, Mycology, Parasitology and Molecular biology.
The laboratory caters to premium diagnostic services with the best fully automated equipments meeting international standards and hence the best turn around time ( time from receipt of sample to release of result) offered in the city.
Blood Chemistry testing involves measuring several blood chemicals to establish a pattern of abnormalities.A wide range of tests may be grouped under the headings of enzymes,electrolytes,blood sugars,lipids,hormones,proteins,vitamins,minerals and drug investigations.Selected tests serve as screening devices to identify target organ damage.Prompt and accurate testing facilities can lead to early diagnosis when symptoms are vague or absent.
Saroj Diagnostic Laboratory in Calicut equipped with sophisticated automated instrumentation in Clinical Chemistry makes it possible to conduct a wide variety of tests on a single sample of blood and report results in a timely manner. Our computerized interface allows direct transmission of results between lab and patients. Our home collection facilities help elderly patients&bedridden patients.Another added feature is our reduced turn around time compared to other laboratories.

Hematology & Clinical Pathology
Pathology is a relentless branch of medical science which is concerned with the cause, origin and nature of diseases. It underpins every aspect of patient care, from diagnosis, treatment as well as management of disease. Pathology has19 sub specialties of which the most important among them are Hematology, Cytopathology, Histopathology, Forensic Pathology, Molecular Genetics and Immunopathology. The department of pathology at Saroj Diagnostic laboratory, indulges in a league of diagnostic procedures in collaboration with ultra-modern sophisticated, fully automated machines. This includes Histopathology, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC), Hematology, Clinical Pathology (includes urine analysis, body fluid analysis, stool examination ), Coagulation studies, Immunohematology etc. The cervical pap smear screening test at our centre starts from the procurement of the sample, cytopathological examination and the issue of reports, at the earliest. Hence Saroj diagnostic laboratory ensures the most meticulous reporting system with the best automated machines in the town, meeting international standards and therefore, the best Turn Around Time.
Division of Radiology (USG, Colour doppler & X-ray CR)
Radiology a division of medicine that has pivotal role in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Department of Radiology at Saroj Diagnostic Laboratory functions under the guidance of eminent Radiologists and equipped with sophisticated Ultrasound scanning machine. We offer a range of scans apart from the routine investigations such as Doppler scans ( including arterial, venous, renal, carotid etc), Obstetric Scan, Fetal Anomaly scan, Obstetric Doppler scans, Cervical assessment, Neck and Thyroid Ultrasound and Breast Ultrasound. We use the high end ultrasound machine GE Logiq S7capable of performing 4D scans there by increasing diagnostic accuracy manifolds.
Radiation protection is our prime concern and we therefore use as low as reasonable dose of radiation to achieve best quality of image with our X Ray machine. We are equipped with Siemens HF X-ray machine having vertical Bucky and computed radiography Agfa CR 15 (NIP) a digital replacement of conventional X ray film and offers enormous benefits in terms of image quality and radiation protection.
