Our fully-automated core laboratory provides routine testing with rapid turnaround time in clinical chemistry and immunology, and hematology. Other laboratory sections include endocrinology, therapeutic drug, coagulation, microbiology, point of care testing, transfusion service and special Laboratory such as allergy testing , autoimmune diagnostic, down syndrome screening, thalassemia, liver fibrosis, free radical and antioxidant, neurological disease and alzheimer's testing.

 
 
   

1. CLINICAL CHEMISTRY - IMMUNOLOGY

The Clinical Chemistry-Immunology Department is fully automated with advanced technology, high throughput analyzers which use the present methodologies for all testing. The Department has the capacity to enable throughput of 5000 test results per hour with complete menu and the analyzers are directly interfaced with the Laboratory Information System. The Department offers a comprehensive range of testing in areas of 

1.1 Routine general chemistry

1.2 Specific protein chemistry include cardiac marker and others

1.3  Immunology include endocrines, infectious markers, cancer markers

1.4  Therapeutic drug monitoring and drug abuse

 
   

2. Hematology

The Hematology Department performs a wide range of tests from basic blood cell count to routine. The Full Blood Count is performed on our automated hematology analyzer which provides information on the quantity and quality of platelets, red and white blood cells. This information aids in the diagnosis of conditions such as anemia, thalassemia, leukemia and infections, particularly dengue. Selected film with significant abnormal results or blood film finding based on the results obtained and clinical history of the patient, a blood film is made and reviewed under the microscope for final reporting. 

2.1 Full complete blood count

2.2 Leukemia – special staining

2.3 Parasites- malaria, microfilaria

 
 
   

3. Coagulation

Our Coagulation Section provides services to access patient’s hemostasis status which is particularly important for patients on anticoagulant therapy. Besides that, special coagulation tests for examples

3.1 Lupus Anticoagulant

3.2 Protein C, Protein S, 

3.3 Anti thrombin III

3.4 Fibrinogen

 
 
   

4. Clinical Microscopy

The Clinical Microscopy Section performs scientific analysis of non-blood body fluids such as urine and stool. The macroscopic, chemical and microscopic examinations of urine provide initial valuable diagnostic information concerning metabolic dysfunctions of both renal and non-renal origin. Analysis of stool samples such as occult blood determination and stool examination for fats help clinician in early detection of gastro-intestinal bleeding, liver and biliary duct disorders and mal absorption syndrome. Parasite identification and assessment of the extent of parasitism are also performed in this section.

4.1 Urinalysis

4.2 Stool examination

4.3 Parasites

4.4 Body fluid analysis

 
 
   

5. Tuberculosis Laboratory

This department is the first private laboratory in Thailand to setup the Mycobacterium tuberculosis diagnosis. The TB section functions at Laboratory Biosafety Level 3 and negative pressure room is required with a Class II, Type A2 biological safety cabinet. It deals with all kinds of specimens submitted for 

5.1 Isolation and identification of all Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Non tuberculosis mycobacterium (NTM). 

5.2 Drug sensitivity testing to provide first-line drugs.

5.3 Quantiferon TB

 
 
   

6. Microbiology

The Microbiology Department performs a wide variety of microbiological testing. Microbiology culture employs the conventional methods with current technology to isolate the causative agent of infection. Accurate and relevant results in microbiology depend on both the doctor and the laboratory. Submission of the best specimen type for a particular test or recovering a specific microorganism is of importance for a successful outcome. Factors contributing to the successful isolation of potential pathogens include specimen selection, quality, collection, and transportation to the laboratory.

6.1 Culture identification by manual and automation

6.2 MALDI-TOF for bacterial identification

6.3 Antimicrobial susceptibility testing 

 
 
   

7. Blood bank

The Blood bank Section performs the compatibility between the patient requiring transfusion and the unit of blood to be transfused. Patient samples are tested for ABO and Rh Type, antibody screening, cross matching and direct anti-globulin test. Blood transfusion protocols are established to ensure the orderly and accurate processing and issuance of blood products.

7.1 ABO and Rh Type

7.2 Antibody screening, identification

7.3 Cross matching and direct anti-globulin test

 
 
   

8. POCT

Point of Care Testing (POCT) is defined as medical diagnostic testing performed outside the clinical laboratory in close proximity to where the patient is receiving care.  POCT is typically performed by non-laboratory personnel and the results are used for clinical decision making. POCT is performed near the patient and informs immediate decisions for clinical management of the patient. POCT tests available at N Health laboratory services include data management and connectivity. Connected POCT system benefits include reduction in transcription errors immediate data analysis and QC monitoring.

8.1 Blood glucose
8.2 Blood gas

8.3 Coagulation (INR)

8.4 Cardiac markers (Troponin T)

 
 
   

9. Special Laboratory

The Special Laboratory performed using a wide variety of methodologies and testing from basic to advance technology. This department has more than 10 automated analyzer for all testing. The Special Laboratory supports physicians by performing testing services for diagnostic and therapeutic evaluations. This teams consists of highly experienced medical technologists and other specialists all working collaboratively The Department offers a comprehensive range of testing in areas of

9.1 Autoimmune diagnostics 

9.2 Allergy testing 

9.3 Prenatal for Down syndrome ,Trisomy 18 and NTD

9.4 New born screening

9.5 Thalassemia

9.6 Liver fibrosis

9.7 Free radical and antioxidant

9.8 Neurological disease and Alzheimer's testing

9.9 Infectious antigen and  antibody

9.10 Endocrine testing

 

 

 

 

 

Our services are provided by modern laboratory equipment such as;

 

1. Total lab automation (TLA)
A self-operating analyzer offering maximum range of functions for clinical chemistry and immunology regarding fully automatic sample transport and dataflow to the respective analysis systems. Being apparent in efficient sample preparation, the TLA is very accurate reducing error rate and performs faster sample processing. Integrating the TLA in our lab, N Health identified a large quantity of samples considerably.

 

2. Fully automated hematology analyzer and cell morphology analyzer
The Analyzers offer high efficiency of blood analysis system enriching the complete service of the comprehensive hematology. With high reliability system that makes the instrument stable and the fault rate lower, differential blood count and blood slide staining are perfectly functional. The special system of Artificial Intelligence helps examine the shape of blood corpuscle samples. To photograph the blood cells. The analyzer is able to diagnose them exhaustively leading to more precision of physician’s diagnosis.

 

3. Automated identification of bacteria
The Innovative technology of microbiology is an automated mass spectrometry microbial identification system which enables faster time to results. It uses Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight (MALDI-TOF) technology and automatically combining identification results with the antibiotic susceptibility test results. The precise microorganism can be identified very easily and contributes to overall laboratory efficiency and confident. 

 

4. Automated image evaluation: Autoimmune diagnostics
The efficient automation of indirect immunofluorescence by microscope automatically records the fluorescence images of all slides successively, without any further input from the laboratory staff. The fluorescence images can be viewed at once and verified directly at the monitor while the microscope continues with the image recording. The complete procedure from the generation of work lists to the interpretation of results and archiving of fluorescence images and results can be performed completely paperless. Results from previous analyses can be viewed in a well-arranged patient history
