TheDepartment of Biochemistry was established in the year 2005 and aims to impart knowledgein Clinical Biochemistry, which is relevant to the field of medicine. TheDepartment comprisesof proficient and competentfaculty who act as supporting pillars of the institution, providing medical education, diagnostic services, while simultaneously engaging in research.Central clinical Biochemistry laboratory hasthe state-of-the-artequipment to provide accurate and timely results to patients.Department comprises of well-equipped research laboratory for doing extensive research activities.

The Team of professionals at Chettinad are well qualified, experienced and dedicated. The department is headed by Prof. Dr Sumathy.S who has 16years of experience in diagnostic and teaching services. The faculty and technical staff are young and energeticand this complements the department strength. All the faculty are highly qualified (MD/M.Sc. /Ph.D.), having graduated from premier institutes. They are also well trainedand constantly thrive to update their knowledge and to establish their benchmark in the field of academics, diagnosis and research.

The Department conducts regular lecture classes and practical sessions for both undergraduate and post graduate students. We take pride in stating that, apart from traditional teaching methodologies, we also employ efficient and innovative teaching learning aidswhich helps the students to develop curiosity, critical thinking, tools of enquiry and creative brain storming at the center of competency based medical curriculum.

Innovative teaching patterns followed include flash cards, quiz, role play, problem-based learning, medical theme-based movies, group discussions, seminar/symposium, assignments, and self-directed learning.We also follow a high impact mentoring program and Mentoring is a proven approach to drive rich learning and it is a continual development for both mentees and mentors.Our thoughtful planning and sustained commitment to the student through the mentoring process helps in improving the academic performance of students.

Undergraduate programs handled include MBBS,BDS,BPT,B.Sc. Nursing and allied health science programs. Post graduate programs offered include MD Biochemistry, Ph.D. program, MDS and M.Sc.Human nutrition.

The faculty of the department of Biochemistry have been actively participating in various research activities since the commencement of the institution they alsogenerate interest among the students and support their research endeavors like ICMR funded projects.Our research program covers wide range of topics with emphasis on molecular biology, diabetes, cancer biology, cardiovascular diseases. We have been conducting workshops every year in molecular biology techniquesfor research scholars to increase their skills in molecular biology. Our department faculties have published papers in various national and international journals coming under Scopus and web of science.

Central Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory Services at Chettinad Hospital and Research Institute has been designed in a futuristic fashion with state of art equipment which include Clinical Chemistry, Immunoassay, D10-HPLC and Blood gas analyzer.

The Laboratory is accredited by NABL as per the ISO 15189:2012 since the year 2009 onwards and the journey continues.All are our department faculty members have undergone training in quality management system and internal audit in medical labs as per ISO 15189-2012.

The department is registered with Biorad for performing External Quality assessment for Clinical Chemistry, Immuno Chemistry, Cardiac markersand Urine Chemistrywith CMC Vellore for performing HbA1C assay

A team of efficient, motivated, knowledgeable doctors, supervisorial and technical staff are involved in the operational of the sophisticated devices and who are constantly involved in upholding quality assurance reports in accordance with predetermined Turnaround Time

Central Clinical Biochemistry Lab at Chettinad Hospital and Research actively provides diagnostic and advisory services to the public and to the medical fraternity

The Clinical chemistry equipment Siemens Dimension RxL is an integrated equipment that has provisions to perform routine clinical chemistry investigations, iron studies, enzyme studies, urine and fluid chemistry. In addition, the instrument has Integrated Multi sensor Technology which provides simultaneous assay of Electrolytes along with routine chemistry investigations with an inbuilt Heterogenous module for Drug analysis.

The Immunochemistry equipment is the Beckman Coulter DxI 600 and Access2 are used to perform the Thyroid Panel, Reproductive Panel, Cardiac markers, cancer markers, Anemia profile, Bone metabolic profile and inflammatory profiles like Ferritin and Interleukin 6.

The D10 Biorad equipment is employed to assay HbA1C for monitoring of Diabetes Mellitus using the Gold standard High Performance liquid Chromatographic technique. ThisInstrument also estimates the levels ofabnormal haemoglobins which is used for diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies.

The clinicallaboratory alsoperforms special investigations like estimation of Hormones,Anemia profile, Cardiac markers,Tumor markers and inflammatory markers. We also perform drug assayswhich play an important role in organ transplantations and newborn screening for diseases like Thalassemia.

Being part of a socially responsible educational organization,our department conducts frequent outreach activities to engage a large audience and to impart knowledge and shareexpertise on a particular topic with regard to Biochemistry and nutrition, to the general public.As part of the program,our team visits primary schools and give lectures through flash cards to create awareness nutritional supplements in the diet among school children. We have also brought health care at the doorstep by conducting medical camps to screen forDiabetes Mellitus.
