Chemistry & Serology


Clinical biochemistry deals with the analysis of a large number of blood or urine components such as glucose or cholesterol.

This discipline allows us to understand the functioning of many organs: kidneys, liver, heart, etc.



Hormonology is a branch of clinical biochemistry that focuses on hormonal physiology and endocrine disorders.

Our department of hormonology is particularly interested in gynaecological hormones such as HCG, progesterone and oestradiol, in the context of fertility assessments. BioneXt Lab performs tests to detect abnormalities in the thyroid, adrenal, hypothalamus and pituitary glands.




Diagnostic serology is the discipline that identifies antibodies specific to a disease. The pathology may be of viral, bacterial or parasitic origin. Hepatitis, toxoplasmosis, Lyme disease, herpes virus infections and sexually transmitted infections are identified by this technique. When serology tests are positive, it means that the individual has been exposed to the infection in question, hence the term "HIV-positive," for example. This terminology is not just used for HIV exposure, but is common for all infections.
