It also provides the patients with post- transplant follow-up recommendations like:
Molecular Diagnostics and Biomarkers
This laboratory focuses on Sepsis and Allograft rejection.
Molecular Diagnostics: It focuses on developing a comprehensive molecular diagnostic panel for bacterial and fungal sepsis for early diagnosis. Also, the lab is working to develop molecular methods to directly characterize the drug resistance pattern of the pathogen thus reducing the turnaround time for decision-making and treatment.
Biomarkers: In sepsis, the lab focuses on molecules associated with the host response to levels of pathogens like circulating levels of inflammatory markers. The practitioners are working to identify a marker that would help to detect sepsis at early stage in the ICU and would help to monitor patient’s therapeutic response in the ICU.
Long-term graft loss is still a major problem in renal transplantation. The occurrence of acute rejection episodes and impaired response of the patient to anti-rejection therapy can lead to adverse graft outcome in both the short term and the long term. Timely detection and treatment of rejection is therefore, an important goal in the post-transplant surveillance. A combination of both molecular marker(s) and biomarker(s) will be valuable in the management of rejection, reversibility of the rejection by therapy, absence of the rejection, long-term graft outcome and tolerance.
The lab is also working on non-invasive prognostic biomarkers of allograft status. It uses both proteomic and genomic approach to quickly identify (i) non-invasive process, (ii) a suitable marker and (iii) a molecular method that could predict allograft rejection much early. It is focusing on renal transplants to investigate biomarkers in urine samples and peripheral bold that would predict or detect acute rejection and stable graft conditions This can provide information regarding prognosis, mRNA expression patterns and markers related to inflammatory cell types and their products in urine sediments and with that, peripheral blood cells can be investigated.
Histopathology & Cytopathology
The Histopathology laboratory provides opinions on all kinds of cases from Gastrointestinal, Cardiovascular, and Orthopedic, Urology, Gyneac and Respiratory Medicine to highly specialized areas are such as Neuropathology, Oncology and Transplant pathology.

Global Hospitals is one of the first hospitals in India to have PET-CT Scan equipment. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a powerful diagnostic test which has made a great impact in the field of diagnosis and treatment of diseases. It can detect and categorize cancers often before they are evident through other tests and also help in acute monitoring of effects of therapy. PET–CT also gives physicians important early information about heart disease and many neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Clinical Applications of PET–CT
Early Detection, staging, assessing treatment response and active management of cancers. PET-CT can also help for planning radiation therapy.
PET-CT is also instrumental in detecting myocardial viability which is useful in decisions about bypass/angioplasty procedures
Other Oncological Applications

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI), is primarily a medical imaging technique most commonly used in radiology to visualize detailed internal structure and limited functions of the body. MRI provides much greater contrast between the different soft tissues of the body than computed tomography (CT) does, making it especially useful in neurological (brain), musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and oncological (cancer) imaging. Unlike CT, it uses no ionizing radiation, but uses a powerful magnetic field to align the nuclear magnetization of (usually) hydrogen atoms in water in the body. Radio frequency (RF) fields are used to systematically alter the alignment of this magnetization, causing the hydrogen nuclei to produce a rotating magnetic field detectable by the scanner. This signal can be manipulated by additional magnetic fields to build up enough information to construct an image of the body.
Virtual Endoscopy, Bronchoscopy reconstruction facility
With bicarbonate concentrates.
