The The Department of Biochemistry was started in
the year 2002.
The Department of
Biochemistry has 2 blocks.
The Academic block of the
Department is involved in teaching of MBBS, B.Sc
Nursing and Post BSc Nursing students. The
department is backed by a committed group of
teachers who have adopted new teaching methodologies
and clinically oriented lectures to make the subject
interesting and prepare the students for their
future clinical years. The students are also
encouraged to take up short research projects. The
department is also involved in guiding MD
Biochemistry students. MD Biochemistry course was
started in the year 2009.
Diagnostic block of the Department
is a High tech Laboratory catering to the needs of
the institution and community at the large. The
Professionally managed and technology driven
laboratory has progressed by leaps and bounds to
provide a wide array of tests catering to the needs
of the Institution and surrounding community.
Established infra structure and state of the art
equipment have helped speedy processing of samples
and accurate reporting. A highly qualified team of
professionals and technologists working round the
clock ensure samples are processed every day.
Quality reports are ensured by performing internal
quality control and participating in external
quality control programs. Two-level validation of
each test ensures accuratereporting.
The Department handles over 1800 tests per
day. The following tests are performed in
the Clinical Biochemistry laboratory.
Chemistry, Electrolytes, Blood Gas Analysis, Lipid
Profile, Liver Profile, Cardiac Markers, Pancreatic
Profile, Diabetic Profile, Thyroid Profile,
Fertility Profile, Immuno Chemistry, Complement
Assays, Procalcitonin, Tumor Markers, Bone Markers,
Prostatic Profile, Anaemia Profile, Coagulation
Profile, Drugs, Vitamins, Electrophoresis, Renal
Profile, CSF analysis, Ascitic Fluid analysis,
Pleural Fluid analysis.
Apart from intra and inter-departmental projects,
the department also offers its laboratory facilities
expertise and guidance to students carrying out
their MD research projects. Biochemistry faculty
have publications in indexed journals and they have
presented their research work in national and
