Biochemistry Laboratory

Biochemistry Laboratory

The department, which has become a reference laboratory, serves its own body as well as various health institutions and, more importantly, it is able to offer a number of rare, specific tests. In Clinical Biochemistry unit, Hormone, Hematology-Coagulation, Drug Levels, Tumor Markers are accepted.


Hormone Department, especially in the infertility follow-up, has a serious role in the movement of metabolism, thyroid hormones, measurement of vitamin levels and heart diseases in the evaluation of the tests are studied. Tumor markers are also measured in the bloodstream, which provides information about the investigation of the whole system in terms of cancer.


The Department of Hematology-Coagulation includes a number of tests involved in the detection of multiple-parameter blood count, bleeding and coagulation disorders. At the same time, we can measure the sensitivity of aspirin and clopidogrel which can be studied in very rare centers but where clinical value is of great importance. Thromboelastography device is used to determine the necessity of blood transfusion before and during surgery and thus to minimize unnecessary blood use.


In the Drug Levels Department, the drugs used for heart diseases, medications taken due to neurological problems, drugs used to suppress organ rejection and chemoteropetic drug levels in patients undergoing organ transplantation are examined.


Apart from the demands of the physicians, as a result of the research, the field of medicine, which is recognized in the diagnostic tests to collect information about and to share this information with physicians is also the services provided in the Biochemistry Laboratory. After the decision is made with the physicians, these tests are added to the Biochemistry Laboratory's panel and this is the biggest effort of the laboratory to keep the quality of service provided up to date.


While providing emergency and routine laboratory services to Cihan Hospital patients, the Biochemistry Laboratory, which fulfills the requirements of being able to produce reliable results, works 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. Internal Quality Controls are monitored on a daily basis, and samples from centers where we are regularly members are studied and external quality controls are conducted by evaluating the results all over the world.
