Haematology is the study of blood and blood disorders. The services we offer in haematology and blood group serology include, but are not limited to: complete blood count, hemoglobin electrophoresis, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, blood group, peripheral blood film reading, coagulation studies (PT/INR, APTT, FIBRINOGEN, D-DIMER), direct and indirect Coombs test, and reticulocyte count.
Blood Group Serology
Blood groups for Group A, B, O, and AB,(commonly termed ABO) and Rhesus (Rh) are the two main blood group systems that are screened for every unit of blood collected. Using fully automated instruments with microplate agglutination testing, the ABO, Rh and irregular red cell antibodies typing are confirmed for every donation before transfusion
Blood banking is the process that takes place in the lab to make sure that donated blood, or blood products, are safe before they are used in blood transfusions and other medical procedures. Blood banking includes typing the blood for transfusion and testing for infectious diseases.
Clinical Chemistry is the analysis of various chemical components of body fluid that portray the body’s health status at any given time. At LabRad, our clinical chemistry lab is divided into subspecialties which includes:
General/Routine Chemistry: Tests include, but are not limited to, kidney function test, liver function tests, full lipid studies, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, uric acid, microalbumin, creatinine kinase, MB fraction of creatine kinase, and lactate dehydrogenase.
Special Investigations: Examples include protein electrophoresis, VMA, cardiac markers, panel tests, and iron studies.
Toxicology: This involves testing for toxins or abusive drugs like marijuana, opiates, cocaine,
amphetamines, and other chemicals.
Immunochemistry/Clinical Endocrinology: This involves the hormonal study and diagnosis of endocrine disorders. LabRad offers a wide range of hormonal assays and other endocrine related tests like female hormonal profile, male hormonal profile, ovulation profile, vitamins B and D, serum amylase, and lipase.
Sub-specialties within our microbiology laboratory include:
Mycology: For fungal studies and fungal cultures
Virology: For viral screening and diagnostic tests. Examples include infectious mononucleosis screen, cytomegalovirus assay, HIV 1 and 2 diagnostic tests, hepatitis B panel tests, and hepatitis C panel tests.
Parasitology: For analysis of body fluids and specimens to establish the presence or absence of
parasites of health implications. We offer services in the areas of urinalysis, stool analysis, light, and fluorescence
Bacteriology: We offer microscopy, culture, and sensitivity tests for all types of body fluids and
swabs using our automated identification and sensitivity machine. We also run special cultures
like fungi culture and blood culture.
This the branch of sciences dealing with parasites which infect humans, the diseases caused by them, clinical picture and the response produced by humans against them. It is also concerned with various methods of their diagnosis, treatment and their prevention & control.
This investigation is used to identify antibodies and proteins in the body.
The tests include; antibody titration, ABO and Rhesus blood grouping, coomb’s test, hepatitis panel, retroviral syndrome screening, etc.
We use a state of the art immunochemistry analyzer to analyze body fluids to detect antigen-antibody reactions, abnormal rise or fall in body blood components and abnormal production of certain chemicals in the body.
This is a sub section of the clinical chemistry laboratory. Tests conducted include; pituitary hormonal assay, reproductive hormonal assay for both male and female, stress hormonal assay, thyroid function test, insulin level, prostate specific antigen and pregnancy tests (serum B HCG and urine B HCG).
Molecular Biology is the field of biology that studies the composition, structure and interactions of cellular molecules – such as nucleic acids and proteins – that carry out the biological processes essential for the cell’s functions and maintenance
Special Laboratory Investigations
Our special investigations include, but are not limited to, anti-nuclear antibody tests (ANA), ANCA (P and C ANCA), VMA, acetylcholine receptor antibody tests, AMH, Proteins S and C, Antiphospholipid Antibodies, and Antithrombin III.
Food Handler’s Screening
Food handlers in Domestic and Commercial places need to pass health checks to certify them for work and service. We come handy to give you proper rudimentary checks to guarantee proper food service standards are observed by handlers.
Domestic Workers Screening
Checking on the health of those you trust to look after your household is a very important issue. Our Domestic Staff Screening tests provide you with necessary information you require to ensure that your domestic help has a clean bill of health before they become part of the household.
Domestic Staff Health Screening is a set of tests that checks for communicable diseases in the staff that work in homes.
We provide assistance to intending couples to get Premarital Screening, where elaborate tests for genetic, infectious and blood transmitted diseases are conducted to prevent any risk of transmitting any disease to their children.
At Labrad, we offer you thorough body scan and checks to verify and recommend Health care status and conditions. Our specialty gives you amazing health-check solution at very affordable prices as obtainable anywhere in the world.
A non-invasive test where sounds are used to produce images of the heart to show changes in heart chambers, heart-pumping strength, heart valve structures, functionality, and other heart structures and functions.
We provide excellent image quality with an advanced and modern
We offer outstanding and prompt cardiologist review with standard Echocardiography reports.
Transcranial Doppler (TCD)
This type of ultrasound is used to monitor cerebral blood flow and detect any stenotic or occluded intracranial and extracranial vessels in ischemic stroke patients and sickle cell patients between the ages of 2 to 16 years (STOP Study Guidelines).
It is also used to monitor for vasospasm in subarachnoid hemorrhage patients or before and after Ventriculoperitoneal shunting in hydrocephalic patients. With the Spencer ST3 TCD machine, using a 2hz ultrasound probe, we can isolate intracranial and extracranial cerebral arteries (middle cerebral artery, anterior cerebral arteries, vertebral arteries, etc.)
Some indications for having an EEG done include: to rule of seizures/epilepsy, to characterize the type of seizure/epilepsy, to localize seizure focus, to determine the best antiepileptic drugs deemed appropriate for patients, and to detect subclinical seizures in critical patients (e.g., brain tumors, stroke, encephalitis).
Our EEG studies are digitally run by a well-trained Neurodiagnostic technologist, with a minimum of a Bachelor of Science in Physiology and trained according to the U.S. Neurodiagnostic Technology curriculum.
Our EEG results are interpreted by a U.S. board-certified Neurologist and Epileptologist.
A form of radiography that captures data during patient examination and immediately transfers it to a computer system without the use of an intermediate cassette. This ensures that the patient
is exposed to less radiation while providing an immediate image preview and availability
A medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from inside the body. Examples include obstetric scan, transvaginal scan, and transrectal scan.
This includes CT-urogram, CT abdomen, CT brain/skull, CT of the spine, CT chest, CT of the limbs, CT guided studies and CT angiogram.
Arterial/Vascular Doppler Studies
This is an imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure adequate blood flow through the arteries. The test is used to calculate the velocity of blood flow and to determine the degree of narrowing and blockage in the blood vessels if any.
Examples of tests include the Carotid Doppler test and Upper and Lower limb Doppler test. The tests are administered by a trained vascular Neurologist.
