All routine test results will be handed to patients within 24 hrs after sampling of specimens, except for special tests. Please refer to the laboratory for more details.For added convenience, it may be electronically delivered to our clients via CloudCare, whereby specific login details to access the results online will be provided at the Laboratory check-out desk.
The Department of Laboratory at Doctors Center is one of the finest laboratory departments in the nation and the region. The department prides itself on providing high quality of diagnostic services for clinical physicians and their patients, offering sophisticated methods for evaluating the full range of the many and varied tests and procedures carried out in the department. DC comprehensive laboratory services are dedicated to detection and monitoring of diseases and abnormalities. The department is staffed by highly skilled clinical scientists and technicians.
Our Lab is TUV certified. High standard of results is ensured by various internal and external quality controls. Our Laboratory is equipped with the fully computerized instrumentation for quick and accurate inpatient and outpatient testing.
The Laboratory is involved in clinical chemistry, medical microbiology, hematology, immunology, virology and body fluids. Our Laboratory also features High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (for drugs, amino addition to Pathology- specific testing. Other departments such as Molecular Genetics (using PCR and FISH technique), Cytogenetic (chromosomal analysis PGD), Neonatal Screening for inborn error of metabolism, Atomic Absorption, Polarigraphy for trace and heavy metals (all metals including Mercury and selenium), and microarray.

“The Doctor’s center Laboratory” is pleased to offer a comprehensive and cost-effective Allergy Testing Resource using the Phadia Immunocap System, the “Gold standard” in specific IgE in-vitro allergy testing worldwide.
The testing panels which are base on age groups, were carefully devised based on expert recommendations to reflect the natural history of allergic diseases, as well as the local and regional epidemiologic and aerobiologic dat.
While we recognize that clinical interpretation of any test is needed and further investigation may still be necessary, we hope that for the purposes of screening and detection of allergies, the following panels and recommendations will be most valuable for your needs:
- Infant Panel (less than 2 years)
- Preschool Age (2 – 5 years)
- School Age (5 – 12 years)
- Adolescent / Adult National Respiratory Panel
- Food Allergy Panel (Comprehensive)
Electroencephalogram (EEG) detects electrical activity of the brain using small, flat metal discs (electrodes) attached to human scalp. The brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time. This activity shows up as wavy lines on an EEG recording.
Electrocardiogram (ECG) is routinely used to assess the electrical and muscular functions of the heart. While it is a relatively simple test to perform, the interpretation of the ECG tracing requires significant amounts of training.
This test involves measuring the partial pressure difference between inspired and expired carbon monoxide. The measurement of DLCO is affected by atmospheric pressure and/or altitude, amount of hemoglobin, carboxyhemoglobin, age and sex. The corrections are based on the American Thoracic Society.
Reproductive biology section
Evaluates certain characteristics of a male’s semen and the sperm contained therein. It is done to help evaluate male fertility. Collection techniques and precise measurement method may influence results.
Endocrinology is the branch dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones.
Spirometry is used to assess lungs work by measuring quantity of inhaled and exhaled air and the time needed for exhalation. Spirometry is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other conditions that affect breathing.
It examines smears of cells from all over the body (such as samples from the cervix) for evidence of inflammation, cancer, and other conditions.
It processes solid tissue removed from the body (biopsies) for evaluation at the microscopic level.
This department is the area of clinical laboratories that is generally concerned with analysis of body fluids (Serum, plasma urine …). Techniques applied include the use and measurement of enzymatic activities by spectrophotometry, electrophoresis, and immunoassay.
The tests we perform are closely monitored and quality controlled both internally and externally.
This department also measures and studies the effect of harmful chemical, biological and physical agents (Toxicology).
It also studies the biological systems that establish the extent of damage in living organisms.
Hematology is the branch concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to the blood cells. It includes:
It receives almost any clinical specimen, including swabs, feces, urine, blood, sputum, cerebrospinal fluid, synovial fluid, as well as possible infected tissue. And is the branch that studies microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa.
