Biochemistry, sometimes called Biological Chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to livingorganisms.By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy throughmetabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. Over the last 40 years, biochemistry has become so successful at explaining living processes that now almost all areas of the life sciences from botany to medicine are engaged in biochemical research. Today, the main focus of pure biochemistry is in understanding how biological molecules give rise to the processes that occur within living cells, which in turn relates greatly to the study and understanding of whole organisms.

Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which geneticinformation encoded in DNA is able to result in the processes of life. Depending on the exact definition of the terms used, molecular biology can be thought of as a branch of biochemistry, or biochemistry as a tool with which to investigate and study molecular biology.

Much of biochemistry deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such asproteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, which provide the structure of cells and perform many of the functions associated with life. The chemistry of the cell also depends on the reactions of smaller molecules and ions. These can be inorganic, for example water and metal ions, or organic, for example the amino acids which are used to synthesize proteins. The mechanisms by which cells harness energy from their environment via chemical reactions are known as metabolism. The findings of biochemistry are applied primarily in medicine, nutrition, and agriculture. In medicine, biochemists investigate the causes and cures of disease. In nutrition, they study how to maintain health and study the effects of nutritional deficiencies. In agriculture, biochemists investigate soil and fertilizers, and try to discover ways to improve crop cultivation, crop storage and pest control.

Biochemistry is the study of chemical procedures within and involving living organisms. Biochemistry deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, which provide the structure of cells and perform many functions associated with life. Biochemistry tests are to diagnose the chemical classification of a particular enzyme or protein in bodily fluid samples like blood or urine.

Hi .Tech has a team of well-qualified and experienced technologists and technicians, in the Biochemistry department under the eminent guidance of Dr. G. Jayachandran - MD (only on Sunday) to provide the best and the most accurate diagnostic results.

Using the state-of-the-art lab machineries, the Biochemistry division of Hi. Tech is doing the qualitative and quantitative analysis of body fluids such as blood, urine, spinal fluids, other body fluids, and Caliculi to provide a reliable analytical service and advice on the management of patients with metabolic disturbances.

Barcode specimen collection can virtually eliminate patient identification and specimen labeling errors during collection by removing all of the potential failure points. Wireless and barcode technology bring positive patient identification (PPID), positive specimen identification, and real-time specimen label printing to the bedside Here is how it works. The collector (phlebotomist, nurse, etc.) carries a portable label printer and a handheld computer capable of scanning barcodes. Nurses often opt to use laptops on mobile carts instead of handheld computers. The patient draw list displays on the screen. The collector scans the patient's barcoded wristband and documents the second identifier the patient provides. Once the patient's ID is positively confirmed, barcoded specimen labels print at the bedside. Specimens are then collected, labels are affixed, and the labeled tubes are scanned to complete the collection process. Patients and specimens are positively identified.

RARITAN, N.J. (July 22, 2011)  Ortho Clinical Diagnostics (OCD) today announced the launch of the VITROS® 5600 Integrated Chemistry Analyzer System, a state-of-the-art analyzer that delivers high-quality, reliable test results for mid- to high-volume laboratories using the same core technologies that drive reliability and efficiency throughout OCD?s portfolio of products.
