Lab Services & Imaging
Our state-of-the-art diagnostic services consist of seven laboratories including the first Molecular Cancer Diagnostics laboratory in Bangladesh as well as comprehensive imaging exams.
Laboratory testing is important for diagnosing and helping to manage health conditions. These might include blood tests, tests requiring samples of your urine or stool, and other services such as Pap tests and biopsies. Lab testing may be part of a routine check-up, help your doctor make a diagnosis, or be necessary for monitoring health conditions. If you have a chronic condition such as high cholesterol or diabetes, your doctor may ask you to come in regularly for tests to monitor your health. You may also request certain services yourself, such as screening for sexually transmitted infections.
Praava’s full range of on-site lab services include the following laboratories:
In addition, we offer Home Blood Collection through our Biker-Phlebotomists.

Molecular Cancer Diagnostics
Worldwide, cancer now causes more deaths than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. Cancer, including colorectal, breast, cervical, and lung cancer, is now a threat to the population of Bangladesh. Diagnosis of these diseases will serve both preventative and therapeutic benefits.
Oncology molecular diagnostics, including for colorectal, breast, cervical and lung cancers, has been most effective and can reduce cancer mortality based on early detection as well as disease management. Also, rapid turnaround times are crucial when making decisions regarding targeted therapies for cancer patients.
Routine check-ups or screenings for breast and cervical cancers should be an important part of women’s health. Early diagnosis of these predominant cancers can reduce morbidity and mortality rates in the population.

Praava’s Molecular Cancer Diagnostics lab will have a state-of-the-art facility for screening and diagnosis of cancer in Bangladesh. We are focused on early detection of colorectal, breast, cervical, and lung cancers to allow for their appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
