Department of Biochemistry


Biochemistry is a branch of medicine that deals with the application of physical and organic chemistry along with Biochemistry in human health and disease. For medical students it is imperative that they learn about the normal functioning of the body which deals with the process of converting raw materials or nutritional chemicals into more useful and valuable bio molecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids. It also deals with molecular biology, the science of genes. In addition, Biochemistry also deals Biochemical investigations in blood and body fluids and helps doctors in diagnosis and decision making.


The department of Biochemistry is involved in the Undergraduate teaching for medical students of First MBBS course which is affiliated to the Rajasthan University of Health Sciences, Jaipur (RUHS, Jaipur). The Department of Biochemistry is run by a group of experienced and talented doctors and faculty. The department strives to achieve excellence in the fields of medical education, research activities in the field of clinical biochemistry and to maintain high standards in diagnostic services.


Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory

The Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory is run by a group of experienced and talented doctors and faculty who provide diagnostic laboratory services to outpatients and inpatients. The laboratory is committed to maintaining the highest quality of performance using the latest technology and equipment that enables us to provide rapid and reliable results for the patient in the shortest turnaround time.The laboratory is intended to serve as a referral laboratory for physicians of this hospital.

Routine Biochemistry and specialized tests like hormones, tumour markers, vitamins and cardiac profile is carried out on a daily basis.


The Biochemistry department, along with the other lab departments are interconnected to the hospital by a Laboratory Information System (LIS) for speedier and accurate generation of reports.


The Department has enrolled in External Quality Assurance Programmes for proficiency testing provided by CMC, Vellore.


The Biochemical diagnostics are done on unique automated platforms linked to sophisticated IT enabled services which allows the treating doctor anywhere in the hospital to view the blood test results of the patients immediately on being done.
