TBIR LAB

TB IRL – Tuberculosis Intermediate Reference Laboratory, is the referral laboratory for TB diagnosis, located under the department of Microbiology, Government Medical College, in New Civil Hospital Campus, Surat. This TB IRL developed with the help of Government of India, Government of Gujarat, State TB Office-Gandhinagar, New Civil Hospital Surat, and restless efforts of Dr Summaiya Mullan (DCP, MD, PhD, PGDRM) – Professor and Head Microbiology and in-charge of TB IRL Surat.

With the expenditure of Rs. 1.2 Cr this Laboratory having two floors and almost 22 rooms to handle the significant workload by the latest diagnostic methods according to WHO & CDC (International) guidelines. This is the third Laboratory in Gujarat to help in the diagnosis of TB patients. It caters entire populations of South Gujarat and provides absolutely FREE diagnosis of TB to all population which generally cost Rs. 1500-2000 in the private laboratories, with no quality compromise.

The TB IRL Surat was identified as a place for serving to the entire South Gujarat region to diagnose TB and MDR(Multi Drug Resistance) TB cases under the RNTCP PMDT programme. This Laboratory is well equipped to diagnose TB and MDR-TB cases using latest technology like TB-PCR and provide monitoring of treatment by Primary Culture and Drug Susceptibility Testing method with the Gold Standard – Solid Culture (LJ), under the guidance of Dr Summaiya Mullan Professor and Head Microbiology and in-charge of TB IRL Surat. This Laboratory having the modern instruments like TB-PCR Machine, LED-Fluorescent Microscope, Bio Safety Cabinets ClassIIA2 type, Close buckets centrifuges and many more. Recently Central Tb Division taken a call to upgrade this laboratory to the Negative Pressure Laboratory with Bio Safety Level – 3, and will be Provided with Liquid Culture System, this increase the rapidity of the diagnosis.

Goal and objectives of department:

  • Our mission is to offer inclusive education and create a continuous stream of trained medical professionals to cater to the emerging healthcare needs, to serve the community needs, disadvantaged and underprivileged people at most affordable cost.
  • Microbiological department commits to provide accurate and clinically useful results by using appropriate testing methods and upholding good Laboratory practices.
  • For quality we report the results of examination in ways, which are timely, confidential, accurate and clinically of use. The Microbiological Laboratory provides round the clock services to the society, for any outbreak department support, 24 x 7 , 365 days in a year.

Services Provided/ Functions by Department:

  • Department of Microbiology offers various diagnostic services in the field of Bacteriology, Serology, Culture and Molecular testing for Leptospirosis, Dengue, H1N1, Tuberculosis, Mycology, Parasitology, HIV Laboratory which is:SRL (State reference laboratory)ICTC centre (integrated counselling and testing centre),PPTCT centre (Prevention of parents to child transmition),STI Centre (Sexually transmitted infections); having CD4 testing facility.
  • In the Microbiology laboratory majority of the tests are NABL accrediated (National Accreditation Board for testing and Clinical Laboratories) which is a distinction obtained by very few laboratories in the country
