The Biochemical Kit Laboratory
is engaged in the evaluation of
Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose (SMBG) devices such as Glucometers - Blood
Glucose test Strips with a mandate to evaluate the intrinsic quality in terms
of accuracy/specificity so that diagnostic accuracy and reliability of the
such test devices could be assured.
The process for standardization of the cardiac parameters such as
Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL and HDL is on its way.
Proposed Target for Testing of New Biologicals
The laboratory is in the process of standardizing evaluation procedures for
products for testing lipid parameters. More clinical
biochemistry parameters related to cardiac functions, liver function and
kidney function will also be standardized and the methodology related to the
QC evaluation of the respective Biochemical Kits will be developed.
