Special emphasis is given on quality by maintaining uncompromising stringent control protocols.

Metabolic Diseases Laboratory

  • Genetic disorders play an increasingly greater role in clinical medicine. In the aggregate, 6% to 8% of diseases among hospitalized children have been ascribed to Mendelian traits inherited as single gene defects. Hundreds of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) have been identified to date, primarily through the detection of endogenous metabolites abnormally accumulated in biological fluids and tissues.
  • The clinical impact of biochemical genetics is driven by the constant expansion of the number of metabolites and enzyme activities that can be assayed in human body fluids and tissues for diagnostic purposes. Consequently, testing for hereditary metabolic disorders has developed from a highly specialized and fragmented activity, provided mostly by research-oriented scientists, to a critical component at the forefront of the laboratory work-up of patients of all ages.
  • The Apollo hospitals metabolic diseases Laboratory has a mission to provide biochemical testing and result interpretation and consultation of the highest quality for the diagnosis, study, and clinical care of patients with a broad spectrum of IEM.
