Medical Parasitology has included the study of parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as vectors of various pathogens. Crystal Diagnostic provide diagnostic facilities for different parasitic infections. It has a great deal of experience and provides many other nearby hospitals and clinics with diagnostic parasitology services.
The specimens submitted for parasitology include urine for routine and chemical examination as well as auto strip analyzer (Urilyzer 100 Pro) and stool specimens for the detection of flagellates and pathogenic amoebae, and for the detection/identification of ova belonging to different nematode species (roundworms). Blood specimens are also sent for malarial parasite diagnosis and species identification.
