HOD Laboratory – Precision & Automation!

At HOD, we focus our highest attention to the importance of precision in laboratory operations. Thereby HOD has chosen the best of quality equipment to meet your requirements. In June 2015, we have introduced a fully automated bi-directionally integrated centralized laboratory at Karkardooma, Delhi. Our team of Pathologists and technical staff verify the results of every sample, and continually monitor and implement quality checks to ensure the highest precision for your testing.

  • Dry Chemistry based technologies: Unlike most other leading laboratories in Delhi, HOD uses dry chemistry in most of its testing. Dry Chemistry is the most advanced technology from USA on fully automated biochemistry platform giving quick, reliable, accurate and consistent patient result. Clinicians rely on it to treat for better patient outcome. It does not require external interventions like usage of water, washing, etc that eliminates the sources of error. Its single disposable slide for every test with unique multi layered Dry Slide Technology produce better precision & accuracy. However, Dry chemistry is much costlier than wet chemistry. But at HOD, we absorb most of these costs, and strive to earn our small share of profits through volumes.
  • NABL Accredited: The central laboratory in Karkardooma, holds a NABL Accredition, and follows stringent quality management norms for most high volume parameters such as those included in LFT, KFT, CBC, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, HbA1c, Thyroid Profile, Lipid Profile, Blood Sugar and other tests.
  • Barcoded: Barcoding ensures that there are no manual errors in patient and sample identification.
  • Bi-Directional Integration: Bi-Directional integration ensures that you don’t end up getting a wrong manually entered report. In this method, the blood testing equipment directly queries the IT system for test you have requested for, as per your barcode; then performs the required tests; and subsequently enters your results directly to your barcode ID for the technicians and pathologist to review. Since the requisition process is automated for a vast majority of tests, the chances of manual errors are exponentially reduced.
  • No Franchisees: All our outlets are company owned, and this helps us achieve multiple benefits. Firstly, the margins to franchisees are passed on directly to customers in the form of discounted pricing. Secondly, not having franchisees, means that we can act with more agility and effectiveness to provide you quicker reports and improvise services wherever needed, as we are in better control of delivering better diagnosis. However, even though we understand that this restricts our ability to expand quickly, we believe that better control over the entire laboratory process can ensure the best of the diagnostics world.
  • High Capacity – Fast Turnaround: With an aggregate capacity of performing well over 1,000 test per hour, at HOD we strive to keep additional capacity handy, to be able to meet your report quick reports, even on heavy work-days.
