In Jan. 1994, the department of Biochemistry started functioning independently for all activities including investigative services, teaching and training of students. Since then the department has progressed rapidly in terms of expansion in services, recruitment of able faculty members, paramedical and supportive staff and installation of sophisticated and modern equipments.
The department has paramedical and ministerial staff of about fifty members to provide routine as well as round the clock emergency services.
» MD: 03 started in 2016

 » MBBS: 50 students till 2012,100 students since 2013.

 » BSc (Medical Lab. Technology) : 3 years course, 12 students/year.

 » BSc Ophthalmology.

 » BSc Anaesthesia & Operation Theatre Techniques.

 » BSc Physiotherapy : The department is imparting teaching to BSc Physiotherapy students of Saket College of Physiotherapy, Chandimandir, Panchkula since .

 » MLT Vocational Training Course: The students are posted in the department as a part of their internship training.

 » Post Graduate Teaching, Training & Thesis related research: PG Junior residents from the department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine are posted in Biochemistry for one month and trained for various biochemical tests and procedures.

 » Thesis related research work support is being extended to various clinical departments.

  ♦ The Clinical Chemistry Laboratory was established in Feb.1994. Emergency services were started in May, 1997. Presently the department is equipped with state of art equipments like : Modular P 800 Random Access Chemistry Analyzer, Rximola Random Access Chemistry Analyzer, Chemiluminiscence-Advia Centaur XP, Hitachi 902, Metabolite and Blood Gas Analyzer-ABL800, Smartlyte Electrolyte Analyzer, Semi autoanalyzer, ELISA Reader-, Double beam spectrophotometer, Fluorescence spectrophotometer, PCR, DNA Electrophoresis, Gel Documentation system, HPLC, Atomic absorption spectrophotometer.
  ♦ In all approximately more than 80 parameters are done in the department which includes routine as well as specialized investigations.
  ♦ 24 hr. Emergency services are provided for the patient care and about 40 investigations are done round the clock.
  ♦ Starting with 20,000 tests per year in 1995, approximately 17,00,000 tests are being carried out per year presently in routine as well as emergency clinical biochemistry.
