Quality Operations Laboratory

Pathology Section

In this laboratory, chemistry analyzer and hematology analyzer, fluorescent microscope and centrifuge machine have been installed. The SOPs of hematology and serum chemistry analysis have been prepared. Blood and serum samples from birds, equine, canine, bovine, sheep or goats are routinely received in the laboratory and are processed for blood and serum analysis. The Pathology section of Quality Operations Laboratory is participating in International Proficiency Testing Program launched by EQAS (England) for 10 serum chemistry tests. The lab offers its facilities for commercial as well as research sample analysis. The Postgraduate students from UVAS as well as from other institutes are encouraged to use the available facilities.

Following activities are routinely carried out in the laboratory:

    1. Serum chemistry analysis
      Fourteen different serum chemistry tests can be performed on each serum sample. The tests are total serum protein, albumin, glucose, cholesterol, Liver Function Tests (SGOT, SGPT, Alkaline Phosphatase, Total Bilirubin and GGT), Kidney Function Test (Urea, Uric Acid and Creatinine) etc.
    2. Complete blood count (CBC)
      Eighteen parameters of the each blood sample such as total erythrocytic count, total leukocytic count, differential leukocytic count, hemoglobin estimation, PCV, Platelets etc., can be determined for all domestic animals except birds and those with nucleated RBCs.

    3. Histo-Pathological Section

      In this section, Paraffin embedding station, microtome, auto-stainer, knife maker, Microtome, pH meter and centrifuge machines have been installed.
      Histopathological examination of infectious and non-infectious disease of livestock and poultry is also performed mostly for research purposes.
