Infertility Investigations

Infertility Investigations

A brainchild of the late Dr.Achyut Phadke, the laboratory is considered as one of the biggest referral labs in the country for infertility investigations like Semen Analysis, Anti-sperm Antibody tests, Sperm function test, Post Coital Test, etc. Dr.Achyut Phadke had published a number of articles in Indian as well as international journals & has written a number of books on male infertility which are currently widely used by andrologists & other infertility specialists all over the world. The lab gets referrals from all the leading IVF centres in the city of Mumbai as well as India.It also performs the highest number of semen analysis tests and sperm morphology examinations in the country. We take a lot of pride in this field because of our rich legacy in the same . We will strive to maintain our infertility department at this peak and ensure that we bring in newer and more reliable tests in this field on a regular basis.

Histopathology Investigations

Infertility Investigations

The laboratory is a leading referral centre for biopsy examinations and Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) tests. This work is personally done by Dr. Avinash A. Phadke who has extensive experience in cancer histopathology right from his tenure at Tata Memorial Hospital and K.E.M Hospital . He is assisted by Dr.Mangala Simha who had served as the head of department of histopathology at Breach Candy Hospital. We also have with us one of the most eminent histopathologists of India Dr.Anita Borges. The laboratory examines more than 20000 histopathology specimens per year which is one of the largest in the country.

Haematology Tests

Haematology Tests

The laboratory is fully equipped with a fully automated, five-part differential analyzer which can accurately detect 26 blood parameters in less than a minute.It is useful in the diagnosis of haematological conditions like anemias, leukemias, etc. No hematology report is complete without expert interpretation by qualified doctors & we make it our personal mission to provide the best quality of reports to the patients.

Biochemistry Tests

Biochemistry Tests

The laboratory is equipped with three fully automated, random access biochemistry analyzers which can carry out various investigations like Lipid Profiles, Kidney Function Tests, Liver Function Tests, Cardiac Profiles, etc.

Immunology And Specialised Investigations

Immunology And Specialised Investigations

The laboratory is fully equipped with various state-of-the-art equipments for carrying out special investigations like Hormone Tests, Cancer Markers, Drug Assays, Hepatitis Markers and other specialized investigations. The samples for these tests are received from all across the country as well as major leading hospitals in the city. The laboratory performs more than 1200 investigations per day.

Microbiology Lab

Microbiology Lab

For the first time in Mumbai, our laboratory introduced a Fully Automated BacT/ALERT 3D System capable of continuous monitoring of growth (every 10 mins) of Mycobacteria, Aerobic Bacteria, Anaerobic Bacteria and Fungi in culture bottles.

SRL Diagnostics-Dr.Avinash Phadke‘s -Microbiology Lab is a fully automated lab performing more than 60 different specialized microbiology tests helping our doctors to take critical decisions.

Our department is well equipped with a team of 3 experienced MD microbiologist and a 3 full time experienced senior microbiology (M.Sc) lab personnel .

We have a state-of-the-art equipments in our lab ; Bac‘T Alert, Vitek for MIC, HAIN‘s test.

We at Dr.Phadke‘s lab in our Microbiology department believe in communicating all our results to our clinicians round the clock.

We are attached to most of the specialized hospitals and clinics for the outsourced microbiology test menu . Our team of Microbiology also carries Operation theatre surveillances for the operation theatres of various hospitals, food and water testing for many organizations.

Our microbiology test menu is completely covered under the scope of NABL., including HAIN‘s test.

Blood and Body Fluid Cultures

Blood and Body Fluid Cultures

Blood cultured by the BacT/Alert 3D leads to early detection of pathogens (>89% within 24 hrs. & 97% within 48 hrs.) especially in cases of septicaemia, enteric fevers, bacterial endocarditis and other pyrexias of bacterial origin.

Mycobacterial Cultures

Mycobacterial Cultures
  • Mycobacterial Growth is generally observed within a week in case of smear (1+) positive.
  • Speciation into Mycobacterium Tuberculosis complex and Mycobacteria other than Tuberculosis takes an additional 3 days when performed with the HAINS method.
  • Susceptibility testing to primary line of Anti-Tuberculosis drugs vizl Streptomycin, Isoniazid, Rifampicin, Ethambutol and Pyrizinamide and secondary line of drugs viz Kanamycin, Para-amino salicylic acid, Cycloserine, Ethionamide Capreomycin, etc. requires 5-10 days.

Genetic Facilities

Genetic Facilities

The laboratory also has an association with Dr. Hema Purandare‘s Genetic Testing centre, which is a pioneering lab in the field of Genetics.. Medical genetics plays an important role in all aspects of medical practice : prevention, screening, diagnosis and management. About 60% of pregnancy losses, 2-3% of all neonates and 50% of childhood deafness, blindness, mental retardation and 1-10% of all malignancies are directly due to genetic factors.
