Dept of Pathology, NU Hospitals

Dr. Raman thinks that accurate laboratory reports are of paramount importance to correctly treat the patients, especially with renal disorders. At NU hospitals top priority is given to quality and all measures are taken to ensure that quality of lab reports are not compromised at any cost.

The laboratory has been accredited by NABL (National accreditation board for testing and calibration laboratories) since 2012, again ascertaining the quest for quality.

Over the past few years, many advanced tests are being performed in-house, facilitating speedy reporting and enhancing patient convenience. Looking forward to making a comprehensive referral lab for all kinds of kidney ailments at NU hospitals.
