Diagnostic disciplines

Elmi Laboratories have extensively invested in many fields of diagnostic disciplines including the following:

HAEMATOLOGY

Diagnosis and management of benign and malignant disorders of the red cells, white blood cells, platelets and the coagulation system in adults and children.

Haematologists provide clinical support for the haematology diagnostic laboratory and manage disorders of the blood and bone marrow.

MICROBIOLOGY

The diagnostic microbiology laboratory is essential for the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Investigation of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi, and protozoa.

Micro-organisms affect every aspect of our lives. Therefore, it is important the diagnostic microbiology identifies the pathogenic microbes that cause disease and distinguishes them from normal flora and from environmental organisms that does not cause disease.

BIOCHEMISTRY

In Biochemistry, molecular methods are used to investigate, explain, and manipulate biological processes inside our cells and diseases in the liver, kidney and hear are investigated.

Some Biochemical diseases are genetic that affect one of the biochemical processes in our body. The techniques used in Biochemistry advance our understanding of the chemical structures and processes that underpin our health and disease.

VIROLOGY

The study and investigation of the biology of viruses and viral diseases, including the distribution, biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology, ecology, evolution, and clinical aspects of viruses such as rubella, herpes, hepatitis, and HIV.

Viruses are important since they cause many important infectious diseases, among them the common cold, influenza, rabies, measles, and their investigation is vital for the wellbeing of everyone.
