About Cochin Shipyard Central Laboratory, Cochin Shipyard Limited
The Department of Clinical Biochemistry offers diagnostic support to the physicians of our hospital to provide a good clinical service. The laboratory has been accredited by the NABL under ISO/IEC 15189. The development over the years has made it possible to handle over 4500 samples per day and well over 10,000 tests per day.
All the automated instruments are linked to the Hospital LAN allowing on-line transfer of results. Sample collection in vacutainers, transporting through the pneumatic system and bar-coding the samples have reduced manual errors and has facilitated in decreasing the turnaround time of results tremendously. At present they do nearly 170 different tests.
The services provided by The Department of Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory use modern technology that meets the global standards. Medical testing of biochemical serum is the major highlight of this laboratory.
