It has become appallingly obvious that technology and advancements have miraculously changed the medical sector. The new, brainstorming technologies every now and then are introducing impeccable diagnostic equipment for accurate, fast & quick results. Keeping patients’ health as the topmost priority, we at, Sharda have a number of hi-tech and latest technologies available for working on numerous sample volumes. We also aspire to deliver quality and precision to our customers in time with accuracy of data. Some of our technological aspects include:
Dry Chemistry refers to a diagnostic format. One of the most well-known applications of Dry Chemistry technology is urine testing. This technology is used for certain test profiles, for instance, liver function tests and lipid function tests. Apart from this, Dry chemistry technology is also frequently requested for independent analysis of blood glucose. Its process includes dispensing, lamination, slitting, re-lamination, cutting to individual strips and placing the strips into bottles. The technology eliminates inconvenience of liquid reagents. The main principle of Dry chemistry is based upon the reflectance spectrophotometry.
Spectrophotometry is the most commonly practiced technique based on its accuracy, reliability, and chemical specificity. Spectrophotometric analysis is a highly acknowledged analytical tool for reviewing peroxidase enzyme activity and may be used to examine urine specimens. Direct Ion Selective Electrode Direct Ion Selective Electrode is a highly demanded technology for Biochemistry. In clinical chemistry, it is used for evaluation of serum electrolytes, as their concentrations affect variety of biological functions. The simple design instrumentation and ease of operation makes it a desirable addition to the labs to complete the clinical biochemistry profile.
In life science research or Biochemistry, Immunoassay is used in the study of biological systems by tracking different hormones, proteins and antibodies. Immunoassay technology is quick, easy and accurate that can be used in the laboratory to detect specific molecules. This technology measures the presence or concentration of a macromolecule, small molecule in a solution through the use of an antigen or an antibody.
HPLC is an analytical technology is popularly used in quality testing for pharmaceuticals. It is a part of column chromatography frequently used to separate, identify and quantify compounds. It consists of a stationary phase that absorbs the analytes and holds them for a particular time.
With their development in diagnostics, the scope of testing has widened. Besides, the ability to screen and quantify analytes in nanogramhas become a possibility.
Photometry technology is another major contributor in the field of diagnostics. It is especially focused on clinical chemistry. This advanced technology is highly used for majority of biochemical analysis pertaining to kidney, heart and liver function tests. Automated Tissue Processor Automated Tissue Processor is a unique state-of-the-art technology that is widely used for Electron Microscopy processing. This technology helps in quick and easy viewing of specimens through the retort viewing window to see that the specimens are fully covered during processing. Besides, it also offers remote monitoring to help identify and eliminate problems before tissue damage occurs.
Flow Cytometry is a technology used for speedy cell count analysis. Highly demanded in any pathological laboratory, this technology has formed the pillar for a basic blood count test. In coming years, this technology will end up increasing the diagnostic value of the report generated.
Hydrodynamic Focusing is elemental to flow cytometry.This latest technology properly aligns cells, one by one, at the intersection where the analysis by lasers begins. Hydrodynamic focusing creates a clear discrimination between red cells and platelets. It is widely used in a range of fields including hematology, immunology and oncology.
Chemiluminescence is a type of optical sensor technology, which relies on a series of chemical reactions. It usually employs oxidation of a luminol reactant to produce a reaction product that gives off characteristic light. This technology is also used in detection and assay of biomolecules in systems such as ELISA and Western blots.
Furthermore, Chemiluminescent Immunoassay is a variation of the standard enzyme immunoassay (EIA), which is a biochemical technique used in immunology. It can also be used as diagnosis tools in medicine, as well as in several other different industries for various applications.
This technology is ultra-sensitive and can detect small amounts of the biological molecule.Other than this, it has a wider dynamic range, as well as a linear relationship between concentration of the measured substance and luminous intensity.
