Welcome to Laboratory Services

Khwaja Yunus Ali Medical College & Hospital Laboratory focuses on best quality patient care services. Accurate & timely reporting plays an important role in supporting medical decisions for the best patient care.

The clinical laboratory is equipped with latest state of the art technology Total Laboratory Automation System which enables Reduced Human Handling Error & provides reliable accurate test results within the fastest time period

A standard Laboratory Information System (LIS) is present and it is a powerful tool to manage complex processes, ensure the timely result and regulatory compliance. LIS is capable of consolidating complex technical processes into a single, compliant platform with comprehensive reporting, surveillance and networking capabilities. The system reduces the pre- & post-analytical mistakes and thus saves man hour. LIS enhances data management and data sharing within the laboratory, across the laboratories and beyond the lab stakeholders in particular.

KYAMCH lab can boast many firsts to its credit – to name a few:

  • First to introduce for patient registration with name and 3 unique no for patient identification
  • First to introduce total laboratory automation System.
  • First to introduce Immunohistochemistry
  • First automated analyzer for culture & sensitivity testing

Quick turnaround time (TAT) Customers’ satisfaction largely depends on the quick result. KYAMCH lab is strictly committed to fulfilling their TAT commitment as per following priority:

  • STAT: result within 1 hrs from the time of sample reception at lab.
  • URGENT: result within 2 hrs
  • ROUTINE: result within 4 hrs( except schedule tests )
  • Special arrangement for information of critical reports (such as blood/CSF culture etc) to the clinicians.

The quality result is the utmost target/priority :

  • Regularly perform and analyze Internal QC as per requirement of ISO 15189 standard
  • Participate external Quality Assurance ( QA ) program ( a monthly program with Randox International Quality Assurance Scheme ), USA
  • Regularly calibrate all auto analyzers, reagents and accessories like centrifuges, Micropipettes.
  • High Quality Reagents are used & stored maintaining standard temperature strictly

Accuracy and precision of laboratory test results depend on stringent quality control measures. Laboratory results are being generated by automated analyzers and there is a notion that automated analyzers are expected to produce reliable results. In fact, this is not an appropriate notion. In laboratory testing process, there are numerous steps, numerous human involvements, many analytical requirements, reagents etc., and it is inappropriate to rely on this kind of notion. The possible errors or mistakes that can take place in the process of laboratory analysis of biological specimen are pre- & post- analytical avoidable mistakes contributing to >80% errors resulting in non-conformity, non-compliance, unexpected or bad test results. So, quality control is a process where there is a need of compliance by the users, phlebotomists, receptionist and laboratory staff.

The pathology laboratory of Khwaja Yunus Ali Medical College & Hospital performs two QC programs.

  • Internal Quality Control (IQC)
  • External Quality Assessment (EQA)

Internal Quality Control

IQC is a set of procedures undertaken by laboratory staff for the continuous monitoring of operations and the results of measurements in order to decide whether results are reliable enough to be released and it is vital to achieve the analytical quality. IQC materials are run once a day and the test results are validated based upon acceptable QC range assigned by the laboratory or manufacturer.

External Quality Assessment

  • The term EQA is used to describe a method that allows comparison of a laboratory’s testing to a source outside the laboratory. This comparison can be made to the performance of a peer group of laboratories or a reference laboratory.
  • EQA helps to assure customers such as physicians, patients and health authorities that the laboratory can produce reliable results. Individual laboratories can use EQA to identify problems in laboratory practices, allowing for appropriate corrective actions. EQA participation helps to evaluate reliability of methods, materials, equipment & also to evaluate and monitor training impact. It is mandatory for an accredited laboratory to participate in one of the well defined EQA programs.
  • Randox International Quality Assessment Scheme (RIQAS) is a program for External Quality Assessment (EQA) organized by Randox. Khwaja Yunus Ali Medical College & Hospital signed an agreement with the local representative of Randox on clinical chemistry, hematology and Clinical Pathology. More than 3,500 laboratories around the globe are affiliated with the Randox program. After receiving the EQA results, a discussion is held between the director of the pathology laboratory and the Lab manager to review the performance. The problem areas are identified and corrective actions are initiated and recorded.

Policy on Outside Collected Samples for Laboratory Testing

The following policy will be followed on samples collected from outside patients for pathology laboratory tests:

  • We will accept any sample collected by our phlebotomists on doctor’s advice/prescription.
  • We will accept any sample sent to our hospital from outside hospitals/clinics in correct sample tubes and with proper advice/prescription of a doctor or with proper laboratory requisition.

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the world’s most common severe infectious diseases. Approximately 2 million deaths per year are TB-related. A single patient with an active TB may infect 10 to 15 other people each year. In the fight to stop the spread of TB the most important milestone is early diagnosis. However, diagnosis of TB is a challenge. KYAMCH is pioneer in detecting TB from any kind of specimen. Moreover, we can simultaneously detect non-tuberculous mycobacterium (NTM). We already have detected TB from sputum, BAL, any aspirate, body fluids, CSF, urine, tissue, tissue block (paraffin block), pus and are accepting these specimens for test.
