The Department of Reproductive Bio-Medicine has a very specialised laboratory infrastructure for carrying out experimentation in the areas of immunobiology, molecular biology, cell culture, immunodiagnostics, and assisted reproduction techniques. The various specialised laboratories are as follows:
Immunology Laboratory - The laboratory deals with research projects on sperm antibodies, isolation and purification of sperm antigens.Immunology Laboratory - The laboratory deals with research projects on sperm antibodies, isolation and purification of sperm antigens.Immunology Laboratory - The laboratory deals with research projects on sperm antibodies, isolation and purification of sperm antigens.Immunology Laboratory - The laboratory deals with research projects on sperm antibodies, isolation and purification of sperm antigens.
Laboratory for sperm function and assisted reproduction techniques - Different sperm function tests and experiments on assisted reproduction are researched here to develop a better method for future use in the reproductive clinic.
Preparatory laboratory for electron microscopy - The facilities needed for processing tissue samples for electron microscopy, both for SEM and TEM, are available. The task is usually time consuming, and needs to be prepared carefully for better resolution in the electro microscope.
Laboratory for EIA and RIA - For setting up and developing EIA and RIA for steroid and protein hormones, specialised laboratory set up with counters and ELISA readers are available. Iodination facility duly approved by Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) has been functioning for a long time and because of which, estimation of reproductive hormones in laboratory rodent species for research purposes could be carried out with better specificity.
Laboratory for cytogenetic studies - Analysis of chromosomes following lymphocyte of chromosomes in relation to primary or secondary infertility in patients. This is routinely being carried out in this laboratory.
Laboratory for plant extraction and analysis - Extraction of active ingredients from plants has been standardised in order to find out their efficacy as a spermicidal or other properties to be used as a contraceptive in male or female.
Adolescents and Youth Clinic
Adolescents and youth have special needs. They require guidance and help for adoption of healthy lifestyle. They invariably enter into heterosexual and homosexual relationship out of choice or under peer pressure. This lands them into difficult situations. The increasing incidence of unwanted pregnancy, reproductive tract infections (RTIs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) should be prevented. Young people can seek right and timely advice for healthy growth and personality development. Proper health education and counselling for adolescents and youth can help them make 'right choices'
This clinic provides a friendly environment in which information, counselling and other services related to reproductive health of adolescents and youth are provided.
Menopause Clinic at NIHFW aims to assess the reproductive health needs in mid life years of women. Information on reproductive health in peri-menopausal and menopausal women shall be provided. The preventive health care programme will address reproductive health issues of cancer screening, maintenance of mental well-being and sexuality, and prevention of osteoporosis. Menopausal Clinic will provide an environment for women to have a sense of personal choice in dealing with menopausal problems.
