Departmental Profile

The Department of Biochemistry was set up in the year 1964. Starting with a few routine tests for indoor and outdoor patients, it has come a long way in providing prompt, professional and patient friendly laboratory services. The emergency services, which were started in the year 1988, have continued. The emergency services are provided from the laboratory attached to the collection room in the OPD block. Faculty member are posted in the emergency lab for quality assurance and smooth functioning of the laboratory.
The main laboratory in the D Block is equipped with two fully automated random access analyzers, two CLIA System, one HPLC, one ELISA Reader, two coagulometers and two electrolyte analyzers. To reduce the number of visits to the hospital Prothrombin time test reports are delivered to the outdoor patients within two hours after receipt to the sample. The department is participating in the External Quality Assurance Scheme of Christian Medical Association, CMC Vellore. Three of our faculty members are on the panel of Assessors of NABL under the Department of Science and Technology.

Nature of service

Dept of Biochemistry, GIPMER, is conducting the following biochemical assays. All the results are validated by Internal Quality Control Program and “External Quality Assurance Scheme” (EQAS) to maintain accuracy and precision of the tests.

Required fee if any,

All the tests are conducted free of cost and no fees is required to be paid by the patient.
However patients admitted to the nursing homes in the hospital are charged fees for the tests as per the rates decided by the hospital administration.
