Histopathology & Cytopathology

  • Department is processing approximately 280,000 sample counts annually
  • About 20% of those cases are reported positive for malignancy
  • We have wide array of approx. 120 IHC antibody markers
  • We have recently launched lung adenocarcinoma IHC panel including p40, ttf1, pdl1 giving cheaper alternative to molecular testing
  • We are one of the very few labs in India doing in-house MSI/ MMR panel by IHC including MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 & PMS2 for colon adenocarcinoma cases
  • Department team includes 70 well experienced technical staff & specialist Pathologist
  • Performs around 120+ tests of various complexities requested to us from all over the country.
