Nucleus The Diagnostic centre is the unique diagnostic centre providing clinical pathology services to the citizens of Kalyan-Dombivali area, Established in year 2006 by Atul S. Vadhavkar and Dr. Aniruddha J. Ranadive, we are functioning
till this date without a single holiday.
We are the only clinical pathology laboratory working 24x7 in truly professional manner keeping pace with time in terms of upgrading techniques and technology.
We provide vital support to hospitals and out patients in the fields of clinical pathology, histopathology, biochemistry, immunoassays, microbiology and other related fields. Soon venturing in field of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing.
Science of haematology deals with blood and it’s components. It speaks of haemoglobin, Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells, Platelets, size and structure of cells and abnormalities of Them. Haemoglobin: It is most important part of blood as it supplies Oxygen to all tissues of body. If for any reason somebody lacks proper haemoglobin level, which is called as anaemia, it causes serious problems such as breathlessness, swelling on body, paleness and even serious cardiac problems. Deficiency of haemoglobin can be due to many reasons. Some are lack of proper diet, iron deficient diet, vitamin deficiencies and some hereditary causes. WBCs are very important in defence mechanism of body. They try to kill the invaders and keep body protected. It is very important to know about blood parameters to fight diseases and maintaining health.
Microbiology is branch of biology which deals with microorganisms and clinical microbiology deals with microorganisms responsible for diseases. In laboratory, suspected samples such as pus from wounds or secretions, body fluids such as blood, Cerebrospinal fluids, pleural fluids are inoculated in enrichment media where the microorganism such as bacteria and fungi can grow fast and freely. Now with state of the art automated equipment help to identify the type of organism causing disease faster and further lets us know which antibiotics will efficiently kill them.
This branch of science which deals with chemical reactions and variation in metabolic activities of body. For example diabetes can be detected by performing blood sugar test from blood sample of suspected patient. If found values higher then expected normal values, patient can be kept on diet control and medicines. Persistent high values of Cholesterol and Triglycerides in blood may lead to atherosclerosis or blockage of blood vessels and there after serious cardiac dysfunctions or myocardial infarctions. Altered levels of electrolytes namely Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Chloride can cause serious problems like fainting or unconsciousness. In certain liver problems enzymes like S.G.O.T. and S.G.P.T., Alkaline phosphatase are raised in serum. Bilirubin is found raised in cases of jaundice. These can be detected from blood samples. Renal problems can be detected by testing blood for increased levels of creatinine and urea in serum. Decisions can be made for procedures like dialysis just by blood test. Raised levels of cardiac enzymes like CK-NAC, CK-MB, LDH, S.G.O.T. give idea about status of heart in case of myocardial infarctions. It helps understanding deficiencies and replenishing of biochemicals of human body.
Clinical pathology is a medical specialty that is concerned with the diagnosis of disease based on the laboratory analysis of bodily fluids, such as blood, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, stool etc. It helps diagnosing abnormalities in digestive system, urinary tract, cerebrospinal system etc.
This specialized branch of pathology deals with surgically removed parts of body and Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology. The parts of body which are removed from body after surgery, are sent for histopathological studies. These parts are made in to wax blocks and then very thin sections are done with the help of microtome. These sections are stained and mounted on glass slides. The sections thus taken are examined under microscope for abnormalities, unwanted growth and cancers. F.N.A.C.s are performed by aspirating fluids or other contents of enlarged or swollen glands or bulges. These aspirated materials are taken on glass slides, stained and observed under microscope for abnormalities, tuberculosis or cancers.
An Immunoassay is a biochemical test that measures the presence or concentration of a macromolecule in a solution through the use of an antibody or immunoglobulin. The macromolecule detected by the immunoassay is often referred to as an "analyte" and is in many cases a protein. Analytes in biological liquids such as serum or urine are frequently measured using immunoassays for medical and research purposes. This branch mainly deals with hormones and their imbalances. These hormones are secreted in body in very small amounts but are very essential to keep chemical and mechanical cycles of healthy human body to be carried out smoothly. Imbalances in these hormones can cause severe health problems.
