Hematology is a medical specialty that is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of blood diseases, among which we have:
Oncological diseases such as leukemias-Lymphomas
Bleeding diseases such as hemophilia
Anemias such as iron deficiency, among others
They also help us diagnose viral, bacterial or parasite diseases
Among the hematological tests that we can offer you are:
Complete blood count: analyze how your leukocyte levels (immune system) are, your hemoglobin levels and your platelets
Clotting time including PT and PTT
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate...
Clinical Chemistry is a branch of microbiology that deals with the study of the functionality of organs individually or together, for the diagnosis, monitoring, treatment control, prevention and investigation of disease
Among the profiles offered in the laboratory we have:
Kidney function tests: creatinine and urea nitrogen
Liver function tests: total and fractionated bilirubins, total and fractionated proteins, transaminases, ALP and GGT
Control of diabetic patient: Glucose, glycated hemoglobin, creatinine, urea nitrogen and microalbuminuria
Lipid Control: Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides and atherogenic index
Control of adults: Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Glucose and uric acid
Infection profile: PCR
Electrolyte control: Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus and...
Within the services of the Laboratory is the Hormones section, whose function is to determine the levels of various hormones in the body, either in a blood or urine sample
Among the profiles that we find we can list:
Reproductive hormones: LH, FHS, Progesterone, Estradiol
Thyroid hormones: TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Anti-thyroglobulin, Thyroglobulin
Adrenal hormones: Cortisol, Aldosterone
Pituitary Hormones: Prolactin, Growth Hormone, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone,...
In the Parasitology Section of the Laboratory, the study of living parasitic organisms and their relationship with the hosts, human beings and the environment, is carried out for their appropriate use in diagnosing a disease and determining the best treatment
Among the samples that are analyzed in Parasitology are:
Stool sample: we can find amoebae, eggs or larvae
Blood sample: we can find malaria, filariasis
Sample of tissue scrapings: we can find...
The Clinical Bacteriology section is responsible for the identification of infectious disease-causing bacteria through various procedures in addition to potentially effective therapeutic agents To identify these causes and develop an efficient therapy, it is essential to isolate and identify the microorganisms, therefore, generally the results of these tests last three to five days Subsequently, the corresponding sensitivity tests of the agents are carried out to verify the efficiency of the therapeutic agent
Among the samples that are analyzed in bacteriology are:
Urine culture: urine sample
Stool culture: stool sample
Sample of tissue scrapings
Secretions: vaginal, urethral (penis), otic (ear), among others
Body fluids: peritoneal, articular, among...
Clinical Immunology is a specialty of Microbiology that is based on the study of the immune system (organs, tissues and cells) whose function is to recognize foreign elements giving an immune response
In the Immunology laboratory section we can analyze:
Alterations in the physiological functioning of the immune system, autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immunodeficiencies For example, Celiac Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, among others
Recognition of antigens or antibodies when we face bacteria, viruses or parasites For example, Sexually transmitted diseases, CRP-COVID, among...
