KOCHI, OCT. 27 . Immediate steps should be taken to ensure the quality of clinical laboratories in the country, said the president of the Association of Chemical Biochemists of India (ACBI), K. Taranath Shetty.
About 90 per cent of the over one lakh clinical laboratories in the country are substandard, said Prof. Shetty, who is also the head of the Neurochemistry Department at NIMHANS, Bangalore.
Addressing a workshop on modern methods in clinical biochemistry, Prof. Shetty said experts in the field of biochemistry, pathology, microbiology, immunology and other fields involved in laboratory techniques should evolve a standardisation measure in the field.
More than 60 per cent of laboratory tests are being done in the field of clinical chemistry, which are important in diagnosing diseases and monitoring the progress of treatment.
