Medical Laboratory Services

Medical laboratory testing plays a crucial role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease in patients. Laboratory tests help determine the presence, extent or absence of disease as well as monitor effectiveness of treatment. Approximately 60 to 70 percent of all decisions regarding a patient's diagnosis, treatment, hospital admission and discharge are based on laboratory test results. Hence it is critical that clinical laboratory services are not only cost effective, but provide highly accurate information to be used in clinical decision-making.

While technology continues to improve the productivity of today's laboratories, new technologies, new diseases, and disease epidemics continue to drive the need for more innovative tests and testing methods. Changes in the world, such as bio-terrorism and the speed with which diseases spread globally drive the need for rapid diagnosis.

It is here that RGCB comes into the forefront with its unique translational capability in advanced laboratory and theoretical skills in disease biology as well as having highly trained manpower.
