General Laboratory Tests

Our core competency is in offering an extensive range of quality laboratory testings at the primary care level ranging from pediatrics to getriatrics. We present the community with ready accessibility to both simple and complex tests to aid in their diagnosis, health management and disease prevention.

Understanding the necessity of prompt and accurate results reporting, our panel of professionals works hand-in-hand with clinicians to produce rapid turnaround-time of an hour or less for our onsite tests.

We provide complex tests such as immunoassay, full panel of biochemistry markers and more at our centres. The results will be processed at our supporting laboratories which are accredited by College of American Pathologists (CAP) and Laboratory Accreditation Programme (LAP).
