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:

Molecular Cancer Diagnostics
Molecular cancer diagnostics are tests that detect genetic material or related molecules that provide specific information on the disease. The tests are mostly run on blood or tissue samples. Genetic changes are detected on DNA/RNA isolated from patient tissue samples. Molecular cancer diagnostics tests are mainly done on patients who are already diagnosed with some form of cancer.
Benefits of Molecular Cancer Diagnostics:
- Helps to identify very specific treatment
- Reduces the number of unnecessary tests or therapy
- Helps to understand whether a patient has become resistant to the therapy or medication prescribed
- Helps to prolong life span of patients who are at the last stage of cancer by providing information about possible therapies
Praava’s Cancer Diagnostic Tests
Praava’s Molecular Cancer Diagnostics lab is 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.
Colorectal cancer occurs in the colon or rectum. The cancer, when discovered early, is highly treatable. Even if it spreads to nearby regions surgical treatment followed by chemotherapy is highly effective.
Lung Cancer (Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer-NSCLC)
Septin 9 Liquid Biopsy
