Laboratory

Our laboratory is specialized in clinical analysis, with fully automated equipment and sufficient trained personnel to attend it 24 hours a day. We maintain internal quality standards and we are evaluated by an external evaluation program like PACAL, Quality Assurance Program for Laboratories for its acronym in Spanish. They allow us to ensure the accuracy of our results; we have electronic records of their laboratory results that allow the tracking and behavior of our laboratory studies. Also, our high technology equipment allows us to quickly and affordably deliver results.

Coproparasitoscopico
Samples should not be mixed with toilet water or with urine. To collect the sample, place waxed paper or plastic between the toilet seat and the toilet, thus defecating directly on the waxed paper or plastic, or you can place the paper on a Surface like the floor. Wait 1 week if patient was on mineral oil, bismuth, antimalarial or non-absorbable antidiarrheal (Kaolin pectin).

Aspartate aminotransferase
(TGO): Refrain from physical exercise 24 hours before the shot.

Liver Function Tests: 8-hour of fasting, do not perform physical exercise 24 hours prior to intake.
