“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)

EEG

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.

ECG

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.

DLCO

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

Endocrinology is the branch dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones.

Spirometry

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.

Cytopathology

It examines smears of cells from all over the body (such as samples from the cervix) for evidence of inflammation, cancer, and other conditions.

Histopathology

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:

CBC (Complete Blood Count) and Peripheral blood study

It works with whole blood to do full blood counts, and blood films as well as many other specialized tests.

Coagulation (Clotting):

The mechanism of coagulation involves activation, adhesion, and aggregation of platelets along with deposition and maturation of fibrin. Disorders of coagulation are disease states which can result in bleeding (hemorrhage or bruising) or obstructive clotting (thrombosis). This department includes the study of coagulation factors, intrinsic and extrinsic pathways.

Blood Banking

It studies antigen-antibody reactions including blood typing, cross-matching and antibody identification.

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.

Bacteriology

This branch is the study of bacteria, identification, classification, and characterization of bacterial species. The work here is mainly concerned with cultures, to look for suspected pathogens which, if found, are further identified based on biochemical tests. Also, sensitivity testing is carried out to determine whether the pathogen is sensitive or resistant to a suggested medicine.

Parasitology

It is the study of parasites. The most frequently encountered specimen here is faeces. However, blood, urine, sputum, and other samples may also contain parasites.

Immunology

It is a branch of biomedical science that covers the study of all aspects of the immune system in all organisms. It deals with the physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and diseases; malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders (autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency, transplant rejection);

Virology

It is concerned with identification of viruses in specimens such as blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid.

Mycology

It is the branch of biology concerned with the study of fungi.
