Duties of the faculty member : Teaching learning programmes for MBBS students are conducted on a regular basis. Regular seminars, Tutorials, Assignments and attending various conferences are added activities of the department. Modifying the curriculum to make it more clinical oriented. Using various clinical case studies to trigger interest in the concepts of biochemistry. Interactive class room culture which is student friendly.Modification of practicals to make it clinically relevant. Modification of terminal question papers to include more questions on biochemical applications in medicine. Involving faculty in providing more academic support for weaker academic students. Prompt display of practical, oral and the overall terminal marks and also providing prompt feedback on their examination performance. Providing pippettes dispensettes etc to avoid exposure of students to biohazards. The department also provides academic support for conducting courses for Allied Health Sciences (DMLT). We have faculty members dedicated to the advancement of medical knowledge. We have highly qualified and experienced faculty with expertise in Clinical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Apart from teaching activities department also conducts • Seminars, Tutorials and Assignments for the students. • Summer Training for Graduate and Post graduate Students of Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Microbiology. Timings of the Department 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM OPD/ Schedule of the Department Central Clinical Lab is running Round-the-Clock 24 Hours x 7 days Facilities available in the Department for a) Teaching of UGs : The department has all infrastructures to fulfill the requirement of M.C.I. Complete teaching facilities related to the subject of biochemistry are available.

The department has a fully equipped laboratory, sufficient enough to train the First Professional M.B.B.S students.The department has a central lecture theatre which can accommodate more than 100 students, and is equipped with audiovisual aids like L.C.D. Projector and Overhead Projector. Department has one practical room, one demonstration room which can accommodate 25 students. Department has one library, an office and one Employe’s room. The department also has computer facilities to maintain departmental record, prepare lecture slides and demonstrate audiovisual CDs. The laboratory is spacious enough to accommodate about 30 to 35 students at a time in batches for practical.

The Laboratory is equipped with all essential instruments, glassware and chemicals needed for under graduate studies. The laboratory has a five glass almirah fitted in the wall for storing the equipments and chemicals. The laboratory has been decorated with beautiful charts made by students. b) Investigations : The Central Clinical Biochemistry Lab is in existence since 21 August 1991 and was inaugurated by former Minister Dr. Dinesh Johri, Department of Medical Health and Family Welfare, Uttar Pradesh Government. Later on in 2010 Central Clinical Biochemistry lab becomes the Central Clinical Lab (running Biochemistry, Pathology and Microbiology under one roof).During the initial period the department carried out only a limited number of biochemical tests.

With the development of clinical biochemistry, it’s importance in diagnosis and prognosis became well established. Consequently the spectrum of biochemical tests was enlarged to better thediagnostic services. The department caters to the biochemical investigations of the entire hospital in-patients as well as out-patients.

The department also caters to the ART clinic patients and JSY beneficiaries without any budgetary or manpower support from ART clinic or JSY. Different types of routine biochemical tests are done in our laboratory.
Biochemistry lab is functioning in Centeral Clinical Lab at S.V.B.P. Hospital, Meerut. We are involved with processing and reporting of samples for Biochemical Investigations.
to help clinicians, for diagnosis and prognosis of the disease.

The department carries out approx sixty thousand tests per year and approx 165 tests per day.

INVESTIGATIONS AND PATIENT CARE
(I) Collection of specimens : The department maintains out-patient specimen collection centers,manned by the departmental staff. Apart from OPD collection, there is a separate collection
center for in-door patient.
(II) Pre-analytical sample sorting and serum separation for all the blood samples.
(III) Analysis and reporting of routine, and urgent tests:
The analysis of sample is done on Semi automated chemistry Analyzers, Ion selection Electrolyte Analyzer & Arterial Blood Gas Analyzer (Roche: Cobas B 121), Fully Automated Analyzer (vital lab to be installed).
(IV) Ward & OPD wise sorting and making of reports of respective wards and out-patients department.
(V) Routine tests and are done at affordable rates.
