History:- The department started inyear 2011, with offering serological services, and gradually expanded tocurrent, state of the art Microbiological Diagnostic, Teaching and Researchfacilities. The department is located at sixth floor, hospital building, DrRMLIMS. Department publishes an annual newsletter with hospital antibiogramsetc. MicrobiologyDepartment collaborates with National Vector Borne Diseases Control Programmeand is designated as State Sentinel Surveillance Lab for diagnosis of dengue,by CMO, Lucknow. The department of Pathology & Microbiology of RMLIMS, dueto its state of the art diagnostic services have earned the recognition as the“State Referral Centre for Laboratory Investigations (SRCLI)” since 2013 and currentlyhas multiple nodal centres (13 District Hospitals & Government Institutesof the state) for patient sample testing which is not available in thesehospitals.
