Clinical Biochemistry

A wide range of Chemical Pathology tests provided with the use of high throughput routine chemistry analyzers and immunoassay analyzers from the top brands like Siemens, Roche and Beckman.

  • Screening assays are done using automated equipment having integrated software for calculating probable risk to the patient. It includes maternal antenatal panels for predicting the probability of genetic disorders and newborn screening for early detection of galactosemia, hypothyroidism and other inborn metabolism errors.
  • HLPC systems and Capillary Electrophoresis to diagnose different Haemoglobinopathies, Immunoglobin disorders and to monitor the status of Diabetes Mellitus.

Haematology & Immuno-Haematology

This department has both the man and the machine working together to provide the best results. Our collective belief is to comply with standards at all costs. We make sure we use the best of technology by using the latest version equipment and software.

Reports undergo multiple checks to ensure total accuracy. We even have a pathologist team present in the lab for checking the automated results and critical parameters. Report authorization is done in two steps.

From a simple ESR to the complex flow cytometry analysis, all tests are conducted with complete automation. Automated blood group reports have an inbuilt mechanism of self crosscheck so that the blood groups are reported with zero error for each sample.

We also provide Immuno-Haematology testing for ANA, ANA Profile and Allergy Panels across different platforms.

Clinical Pathology

Clinical Pathology is a basic Laboratory service that is often ignored. However, we give this department as much importance as any other. We have dedicated consultants for the department and just like other departments, Clinical Pathology is completely automated as well.

Our Urine analyzers capture and analyze approximately 500 images per urine. Our sperm analyzers can report sperm vitality and velocity and also perform sperm DNA fragmentation analysis.

Histopathology & Cytopathology

At i-Max Diagnostic Centre, we provide accurate and timely diagnosis with the help of our expert Histopathology and Cytopathology team. Their expert diagnosis helps our clinicians to decide the right treatment. We also provide comprehensive reports by including customized extended tests required under well-defined panels, which covers various malignancies.

Our flagship tests and procedures include:

  • All biopsy material, from tissue to slide, is processed, embedded, cut, stained and mounted on Leica Fully Automated Tissue processor, Embedding and staining work stations.
  • Liquid-based Cytology for effective Pap smear screenings and other cellular fluids.
  • Immunohistochemistry (IHC) with extended panels for definitive diagnosis
  • Cryostat for frozen sections for rapid on-table diagnosis
  • Immunofluorescence for medical renal disease and vesiculobullous lesions of the skin
  • Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) procedure conducted onsite in selective branches
  • Foetal Autopsy with the morphological diagnosis


We maintain the highest standards and quality of testing in our laboratories through our team of experienced doctors and highly qualified technicians. We offer a wide range of tests, with the following being the major highlights.

  • CDC approved TB cultures for Immigration
  • Maldi-Tof Identification of Bacteria & Yeast form of Fungi (Candida)
  • AFB C/S for both Immigration & General Patients
  • Blood C/S by Routine, Bactec & BacT/Alert Instruments
  • Vitek 2 Identification & Sensitivity
  • Anaerobic Cultures
  • Aerobic Bacterial Cultures By Both Routine & Vitek Methods
  • Fungal Cultures

Direct microscopy for Gram-positive, Gram-negative Bacilli, Diphtheria, Acid Fast Bacilli, and Fungi Dermatophytes as well as Yeast Forms Including Cryptococcus.


In the Serology Laboratory, analysis of blood samples is performed to check for the presence of antigens and antibodies (IgG and IgM) to help with the diagnosis of diseases and test immunity status. Some important Serologic tests covered by us include:

  • Leptospira, Brucella, Helicobacter Pylori ELISA (IgG & IgM).
  • Mumps, Measles and Varicella-Zoster IgG ELISA for checking immunity status post-vaccination.
  • Dengue IgG, IgM and NS1 Antigen (ELISA- Gold standard) and Chikungunya IgM (Rapid) among the common arboviral infections.
  • TORCH group of tests for congenital infections and recurrent abortions.
  • Antidiphtheria IgG ELISA to check immune status post-DPT vaccination and Anti Spermatozoa antibodies by ELISA only for infertility workup.
  • Serological tests for Autoimmune disorders by ELISA like AntiCardiolipin IgA/IgG/IgM, Antiphospholipid IgA/IgM/IgG, Rheumatoid factor IgM, Stool for Calprotectin and Anti Beta2 Glycoprotein IgG/IgM.
  • Rare viral serological tests such as Paul Bunnell for Infectious Mononucleosis by EBV.
  • Cryptococcal antigen detection in serum and CSF by sensitive latex agglutination test.
  • Anti-CCP testing by CMIA.
  • Rickettsial serology- Weil Felix test.
  • Comprehensive Hepatitis marker testing
  • HBe Ag, Anti HBe, Anti HBc IgM, Anti HBs antibodies, Anti HBc Total by ELFA.
  • HAV IgM, HIV-1&2 Ab and p24 Ag, Anti HCV, HBsAg by CMIA.
  • HEV IgG/ IgM by ELISA.
  • Western Blot for HIV 1/2 confirmation.

The Quanti FERON-TB Gold test is also performed at our Serology Laboratory. This is a whole blood test used to aid the diagnosis of latent infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
