Dept. of Biochemistry & Endocrinology

Head of Department:Dr S. S. Naik

The Pathology Department was started way back in 1965, being named as Rajabahadur Shivlal Motilal Laboratory. An Endocrinology department , the first of its kind in Pune, was added in 1973. Hormones were analysed using Bio-assay techniques. The Bhandari Radio-Immunoasay unit was put up in 1980; the Metabolic Unit was started in 1995. In 2001 we established Molecular Biology techniques.

It provides extensive- round the clock and customized services in the health and nutrition. The services are highly techno-scientific, required to the expanding horizons of Pune.

We operate from our State-of the art facility, equipped with latest updated technology. It is more than just a testing laboratory; we are a hub of investigation, discovery, creativity, development, innovation, quality and service. It is a group of professionals networking with a pool of scientists in the field of Pathology.

We have plans to serve the growing health scenario worldwide and make a mark in the preclinical trials through hematological, biochemical, immunological, molecular investigations as a support to clinical studies.

Our vision is simple. Commit ourselves to patient’s speedy recovery and to quality. We strive to be a trusted analytical testing services partner.

Our laboratory is well equipped with following instruments:

Fully automated random access biochemistry analyzers with 400 tests per hour, Cobas 400 plus, Hitachi 911
Automated Cell Counters – Coulter & Sysmax (8 parts)
Vitros-250-biochemistry analyser
Blood Gas analysers (ABL 500 & 505)
