Sample Collection

Sample Collection

Sample collection is basic to the process of diagnosis of a wide range of diseases and infections caused by microbes. It is also fundamental to the process of establishing the diagnosis, stage, and grade of cancer. It is also indispensable for urine tests, blood tests, and other investigations that involve removal of samples from body fluids or tissues.

To ensure that these investigations give accurate and precise results, proper care needs to be taken during the process of sample collection. At the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Indore, all samples are collected using standard protocols. In addition to having experienced and well-trained staff for the collection of samples, our hospital has a specialised temperature-controlled phlebotomy area.

All the samples are collected in a controlled and systematic way, stored in sterile containers with precision, and labelled with care to avoid tampering. We have immense regard for the time of the patients and their family, so we deliver the test results via email and courier service if needed, according to the personal preference of the patients and their families. The results can also be collected from the hospital in hard copy form.

To minimise the chances of errors in the reports, we resort to the use of an automated barcode system during the sample process. While collecting the sample, our phlebotomy staff takes utmost care to ensure that the patient doesn’t experience a significant amount of pain and discomfort. The chances of double pricking are very less as our staff is highly experienced and professional.

The collected samples are handled with the utmost care and precision and forwarded to the concerned laboratories immediately with the help of pneumatic chutes. These chutes deliver the samples directly to the laboratory’s accessioning area, from where they are sent promptly to the concerned work stations. This ensures the processing of the samples right away and eliminates the chances of delay in reports. Delivering the reports at the right time helps the healthcare providers diagnose the disease at an earlier stage. As a result, the treatment can be started right away and the prognosis can be improved.

As our medical staff is highly experienced and qualified; they have been trained to follow safety measures like the maintaining hand hygiene and the use of proper safety equipment.
