Clinical Biochemistry

This service tests body fluids such as blood and urine. These fluids are examined for the presence of various compounds such as hormones, proteins, enzymes and drugs. This helps in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases such as diabetes, liver disease and heart problems.

We offer a wide range of tests, for example:

  • Cholesterol and lipids are used to calculate the risk of heart disease
  • Glucose is measured to monitor diabetes.
