Clinical Laboratory


Diagnostic services at HBS General Hospital are rapidly enhancing to achieve the highest standards in the country. There are six sub-specialties including diagnostic surgical pathology, Hematology, Blood Bank services, Chemical Pathology, Microbiology, and immunology. These departments are rapidly expanding not only in terms of the addition of new automated equipment but also with expert and qualified technical staff using them.
