Pathology is a field of medicine that studies and diagnoses disease by examining surgically removed organs, tissues (biopsy samples), physiological fluids, and, in certain situations, the entire body (autopsy).
Fortune offers a wide
range of pathology services, including:
ANTI MULLREIN HORMON (AMH): AMH, or antimullerian hormone, is a laboratory test used by OBGYNs and fertility specialists to determine a woman’s ovarian reserve or egg count. The tiny follicles in a woman’s ovaries create this hormone. AMH is used as an oocyte quantity indicator.
Biochemistry is the application of chemistry to the study of biological
processes at the cellular and molecular level. It emerged as a distinct
discipline around the beginning of the 20th century when scientists combined
chemistry, physiology, and biology to investigate the chemistry of living
CANCER MARKER: A
tumor marker is anything present in or produced by cancer cells or other cells
of the body in response to cancer or certain benign (noncancerous) conditions
that provides information about a cancer, such as how aggressive it is,
what kind of treatment it may respond to, or whether it is responding to
Clinical pathology is a medical specialty that is concerned with the diagnosis
of disease based on the laboratory analysis of bodily fluids, such as blood,
urine, and tissue homogenates or extracts using the tools of chemistry,
microbiology, hematology and molecular pathology.
can be defined as all the ways of life including arts, beliefs and
institutions of a population that are passed down from generation to
generation. Culture has been called “the way of life for an entire
society.” As such, it includes codes of manners, dress, language, religion,
rituals, and art.
Haematology is the specialty responsible for the diagnosis and management
of a wide range of benign and malignant disorders of the red and white blood
cells, platelets and the coagulation system in adults and children.
Haematologists care directly for patients on hospital wards and outpatient
Hepatology is a branch of medicine concerned with the study, prevention,
diagnosis, and management of diseases that affect the liver, gallbladder,
biliary tree, and pancreas. The term hepatology is derived from the Greek words
“hepatikos” and “logia,” which mean liver and study, respectively.
Histopathology is the diagnosis and study of diseases of the tissues, and
involves examining tissues and/or cells under a microscope. Histopathologists
are responsible for making tissue diagnoses and helping clinicians manage a
are your body’s chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to
tissues or organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different
processes, including: Growth and development. Metabolism – how your body gets
energy from the foods you eat.
Immunology is the study of the immune system and is a very important
branch of the medical and biological sciences. The immune system protects us
from infection through various lines of defense. If the immune system is not
functioning as it should, it can result in disease, such as autoimmunity,
allergy and cancer.
Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria,
viruses, archaea, fungi and protozoa. This discipline includes fundamental
research on the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, ecology, evolution and
clinical aspects of microorganisms, including the host response to these
A molecule is an electrically neutral group of two or
more atoms held together by chemical bonds. Molecules are
distinguished from ions by their lack of electrical charge.
peripheral blood film (PBF) is a laboratory work-up that involves cytology
of peripheral blood cells smeared on a slide. As basic as it is, PBF is
invaluable in the characterization of various clinical diseases. This article
highlights the basic science and art behind the PBF.
A semen analysis looks at the volume and quality of a man’s sperm. It
is one of the first steps to detect male fertility issues.
What are immunology and serology? Immunology is the study of the body’s
immune system and its functions and disorders. Serology is the study of
blood serum (the clear fluid that separates when blood clots). Immunology and
serology laboratories focus on the following: Identifying antibodies.
STOOL EXAM: A
stool analysis is a series of tests done on a stool (feces) sample to help
diagnose certain conditions affecting the digestive tract. These conditions can
include infection (such as from parasites, viruses, or bacteria), poor nutrient
absorption, or cancer.
URINE EXAM: A
urinalysis (also known as a urine test) is a test that examines the
visual, chemical and microscopic aspects of your urine
VIRAL MARKER: A
viral marker test is vital to identify viruses that cause a range of viral
infections, such as viral fever, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, and other viral
illnesses. A viral marker test is generally a blood test, wherein the samples
are tested for viral contagions to confirm the presence of viral infections.
Virologists study viruses that affect humans, animals, insects, bacteria,
fungi and plants, in community, clinical, agricultural and natural
