Equipped with “fully Automated Hematology, Clinical Chemistry , Microbiology, Molecular biology and Immune assay analyzers with Laboratory Information.

Clinical Chemistry

Offering a wide variety of laboratory tests, including general chemistry profiling, enzyme determination, lipid profiling, cardiac risk marking, liver function tests, kidney profiling and individual protein quantitation.

Clinical Hematology

Including automated and manual blood counts, coagulation studies and malaria identification, thalassemia and sickle cell carries, red blood cell disorders, plus CSF and other body fluid analyses.

Clinical Microbiology

Detection and identification of bacteria and other microorganism causing human pathogenic infections related to different body sites and organs. Rapid direct antigen detection for diagnosis of a wide range of pathogens in CNS and others, including Adenovirus and Rota virus. Drug susceptibility testing to help in antimicrobial treatment. Services related to mycobacterial (Mycobacteriology) and fungal (Mycology) infections. Services for fungal infections including detection of different yeast and mold types.

Clinical Pathology

Clinical Pathology services pertaining to investigating parasitic infections, blood detection, and reducing substance in stool. Urinalysis incorporating chemical analysis and microscopy. Crystals in joint fluid detection and identification, RBC morphology and semen analysis.

Immunology and Serology

Immunoassays use state of the art advanced automated technologies to detect and quantify a specific macromolecule of interest in sample by using an antibody reagent that binds to it specifically and selectively in an immunological reaction. This technique is used in a wide variety of applications. These include: hormones, tumor markers, cardiac markers, and infectious diseases such as Hepatitis B, specific proteins such as ASOT or CRP.

In serology we detect antibody to a particular antigen. Examples are Widal, RPR, TPHA, and Chlamydia.

Immunology looks at auto immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and its follow up. Our well trained and highly skilled biomedical scientist perform and interpret these test results for our satisfied clients.

Clinical Virology

With the recent development of real‐time methods and the detection of amplification products generated by PCR methods, the quantification of both RNA and DNA in clinical samples has been made much easier.
EcoMed has Fully Automated and Advanced Virology unit, which can perform RT PCR viral load for HIV virus, Hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis C virus, Human papilloma virus, Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and Sexually transmitted diseases, with results in less than 24 hours.

DNA Parental Testing

DNA parental testing uses DNA characteristics to determine whether two individuals, in this case father/mother and child are biologically related. Tests can also determine the likelihood of someone being a biological grandparent.

There are other advanced tests available upon your doctor’s request. Contact us for further details or booking.
