Balaji Superspeciality Hospital

Automated Pathology Laboratory

Introducing Delhi’s First Private Laboratory powered by VITROS® Automation Solution. We at House of Diagnostics focus our highest attention to the importance of precision, speed and accuracy in laboratory operations. Lab Automation combined with bi-direction integration, bar-coding & automated analyzers ensures minimal error and accuracy in testing. This shift has brought in process improvement, quality testing and has even provided safety of the technicians. Our team of trained pathologists, with the help of automated tracer, verify the results of every sample and implement quality checks to ensure the highest precision in testing for our patients.

Advantages of Automated Pathology Laboratory
  • Reduces Errors: Introducing Laboratory Automation offers the advantage of allowing a fusion of modern preanalytical workstations with analytical platforms lowering the risk of error. The automated analyzers ensure accuracy in testing.
  • Increases Productivity: Large tasks ranging from sample handling to microplate handling can be done smoothly. Updated lab scheduling software helps to volumize workforce capacity from short to long term, enhancing productivity which is a major benefit.
  • Reduced Test Price: We believe in offering affordable healthcare to all. With the automated integration introduced by us, a great number of tests can be performed, ultimately reducing test costs and helping us in giving the most affordable prices to our patients with the distinguished experience.
  • Faster Service: Automation ensures biochemical testings, molecular diagnostics, immunoassay and other tests which can now be performed in a shorter duration than before, ensuring faster turnaround times.
Other Advanced Technology in Lab Operations
  • Dry Chemistry Based Technologies: Unlike most other leading NABL Accredited Pathology Labs in Delhi NCR, HOD uses Dry Chemistry in most of its testing. Dry Chemistry is the most advanced technology from USA on a fully automated biochemistry platform giving quick, reliable, accurate and consistent patient results. Clinicians rely on it to treat for better patient outcomes. It does not require external interventions like usage of high amount of water, washing, etc that eliminates the sources of error. It uses a single disposable slide for every test with unique multi-layered Dry Slide Technology producing better precision & accuracy. Dry chemistry has a higher cost than most other automated methods but at HOD, we believe in serving the best, providing quality and world class service at an affordable price ethically.
  • Barcoding: Barcoding ensures that there are no manual errors in patient record and sample identification.
  • Bi-Directional Integration: Bi-Directional integration reduces wrong manual entry of results. The machine directly queries with the barcode and enters the testing values for our experienced doctors and pathologists to review. The chances of manual errors are exponentially reduced hence delivering the accurate results.
  • NABL Accredited: Our centralised Laboratory in Karkardooma is NABL Accredited, and follows stringent quality management norms with delta checks, assurances and internal testings. By delivering the most accurate results, HOD has earned the reputation of being amongst one of the most trustworthy and reliable pathology labs in Delhi NCR.
