All about Lab Testing
Tests are done in a medical laboratory which is where the tests are done by an expert who takes specimens to get more information about a patient’s health depending on what the diagnosis and this makes it possible to treat or prevent the disease.
The person’s disease testing is usually focused on applied science and is opposed to what research laboratories is all about and mainly focuses on science basic and academic issues and this field is based on several sections which are anatomic and this includes electron microscopy, cytopathology, and histopathology and each of are usually studied differently but as one course.
Tests include diseases such as pathophysiology, pathology, histology, physical, and anatomy and the clinical pathology includes mycology, immunology, parasitology, virology, and bacteriology and other fields are endocrinology, toxicology, and enzymology,
The field is the genetics which involves the studying of the cytogenetic and the other important field is the reproductive biology which involves assisted productive technology, sperm bank and semen analysis.
Laboratories varies in different institutions and for example in the field of microbiology various health centres use a single laboratory for doing microbiology and in others there are separate units for each kind of test and the laboratory equipment for doing haematology tests and the urinalysis is usually in all the laboratories.
Tests done in the laboratory include microbiology, parasitology, virology, haematology, coagulation, clinical biochemist, toxicology, serology and immunology, immunohematology, urinalysis, histopathology, cytopathology, electron microscopy, genetics, cytogenetic and surgical pathology.
All all specimens in microbiology comprise of synovial fluids, cerebrospinal fluid, sputum, blood, urine, faeces and swabs and any imaginable infected tissues and the method they use is cultures where by the suspected pathogens if they are found may be identified by using the tests which are biochemical.
Parasitology is used to do determination of examining samples of faeces and parasites which are examined to get evidence of any existing intestinal parasites which include hookworms and tapeworms and there is virology which is a field that identifies the viruses in diverse viruses which include cerebrospinal fluid urine and blood.
Clinical biochemistry normally receive plasma or serum and tests are done to check the serum of any chemicals that are present in the blood and this may include diverse elements such as hormones, enzymes, blood sugar and lipids while toxicology are teats of recreational drugs and pharmaceuticals where tests will be done by using blood and urine as the samples.
