What type of equipments are used to set up a pathology lab?

Pathology is the thing that bridges the gap between medicine and science. It takes over every aspect of patient care, from the testing and advice to using technologies and preventing the disease, so basically, it means everything that comes under the treatment of a person beginning from taking the test and diagnosing the disease and from treating the person using every thinks so basically it consists of all the terms and is treating a person when they are sick.

pathology is the branch of science or medicine that provides a helping hand to the world as pathology helps in detecting the illness before it harms the population,

The pathologist uses various pathology types of equipment. Some of the pathology equipment are MRI, CT, PET SCANS, X-ray machines, and other machines which are used for medical imaging and to scan various illnesses.

Serious medical laboratories have the duty to perform various complex chemical haematological immunological biological and microscopic test on a routine basis because these pathology clubs are responsible for carrying on various experiments to function everything and carry on every process very smoothly this is because pathology is the study it is the basically a branch of medicine or scientist in which doctors or a pathologist or a scientist are appointed to carry on all the activities so that every new or any disease or illness which is coming should be detected first-hand and should be provided treatment before it affects various people or animals

For performing these day to day applications correctly and efficiently lab or a medical lab requires a wide range of equipment and so there are many pathological equipments which are required to carry on these processes these pathological equipment are basically the right hand of the pathology labs because without these equipment nothing can happen and they play a very vital role the accuracy of medical diagnosis results basically depends upon the type of laboratory equipments used to carry on the process of analyses and the devices are the things which are used to carry on these processes are known as pathological equipments the array of equipment that established medical labs would have include various type of equipments. Some of the types of equipment are

  • Microscope

One of the essential pathology equipment is a microscope. This pathology equipment is used as a heavy piece in the lab which is used daily.

It enlarges all the tiny images and helps in seeing the problem clearly.

A microscope is one of the most common used pathology equipment as it is used in most of the labs and plays a very important role in all kinds of activities.

  • Incubators

An incubator is a pathology equipment that is used to develop and maintain microbiological cultures or cell cultures. The incubator balances optimal temperature, humidity and other conditions such as the CO2 and oxygen content of the atmosphere inside. The incubator has an insulated enclosure in which temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors can be regulated at various levels optimal for development, hatching, or reproduction. There are three principal kinds of incubators: poultry incubators, infant incubators, and bacteriological incubators.

  • DNA analyzers

Genetic analyzers are automated systems capable of sequencing DNA or analyzing fragments for a variety of applications. In capillary electrophoresis-based systems, DNA fragments bound to probes migrate through a polymer, and the fluorescence emissions are measured.

  • Gamma counters

A gamma counter is a piece of pathological equipment or a scientific instrument that is used to measure gamma radiation in a sample. The gamma counters use 12 NaI well-type detectors for high throughput and performance.

A gamma counter uses a scintillation crystal surrounding the sample to detect gamma rays: gamma rays interact with the crystal, are absorbed, and produce light; then the produced light is measured by a light detector, usually a photomultiplier tube

  • Point of care analyzers

EKF’s point-of-care (POC) analyzers are the pathological equipment that is designed for use within doctors’ surgeries, clinics, hospitals and laboratories to provide fast and accurate results at a very reasonable price. By definition, Point of care analyzers is used in testing, which is carried out in the presence of the patient allowing open dialogue between the patient and the practitioner that can be a doctor, scientist or pathologist.


 Another pathology equipment is Blood Cell Counter which is a completely automatic haematology analyzer that has 19 parameters for microsampling technology and CBC test. It is Compact in size, with a counter which is generally used for counting the Red blood cells in the blood. Further, this equipment is user-friendly with an interface of the counter that allows simple and effective workflow. This type of counter ensures accurate results and efficient performance giving out the desired results.

All the processes in the pathology depend upon this equipment because they are sponsored able for reliable and steady performance for the process to take on so that the illness is detected and the process is going on.
