INDIA – Agilus Diagnostics, formerly SRL Diagnostics, has opened the doors of its new ultramodern laboratory in Tanda in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.
Additionally, Agilus Diagnostics is implementing and incorporating new technology at its diagnostic facilities to adapt to ever-evolving customer needs.
The launch of the new laboratory in Himachal Pradesh presents a unique opportunity for Agilus Diagnostics to expand its presence in the Indian subcontinent.
Sitting a total land area of 3,000 square feet, the well-equipped laboratory has multiple divisions including Hematology, Biochemistry, Clinical Pathology, Serology, and Microbiology.
In a press release, Anand K, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of Agilus Diagnostics said: “Agilus Diagnostics had been catering to the populace in Himachal Pradesh for over a decade through a public-private partnership (PPP) project with the state government.”
The advanced laboratory can process over 30,000 samples in a month ranging from simple routine tests to semi-specialised and specialised tests.
The new facility will complement the high-quality services offered by existing branches and share the responsibility of providing diagnostic testing services to the residents of Himachal Pradesh and the nearby areas.
“We are excited to expand our services through our laboratory facilities. In addition, we believe that our expansive test menu will help the local citizens and doctors to access a large number of tests,” stated Anand K.
This strategic move comes shortly after SRL Diagnostics, a full-fledged subsidiary of Mumbai-listed hospital chain Fortis Healthcare, has rebranded to Agilus Diagnostics.
Formerly SRL Diagnostics, the company has built a strong legacy of expertise, experience, and trust with patients and doctors after delivering high-quality diagnostic care in the last two decades.
It is India’s largest chain in terms of geographic presence with a presence in 1000+ cities, 34 states, and union territories.
By launching the latest diagnostic solutions, building world-class information technology systems, and offering superior customer experience, the company hopes to stay a step ahead as consumers’ needs continue to shift over time.
Agilus Diagnostics recently launched a new laboratory in Panjagutta in Hyderabad, the capital of the southern Indian state of Telangana state.
Recognizing the rising demand for quality diagnostic services, Agilus Diagnostics has expanded its capabilities by launching this laboratory in Hyderabad and now, another in Himachal Pradesh.
The main objective behind this expansion is to help local citizens and doctors to access a large number of diagnostic tests, and ultimately, improve health outcomes.
“We have enabled home collection services for the benefit of our customers and other valued added services like ordering tests through our website and intuitive mobile app, receiving diagnostic reports through digital platforms such as WhatsApp,” noted Anand K.
Through strategic expansion, the development of capabilities in genomics and next-generation diagnostics, superior client experiences, and digitally enabled services, the company aims to continue its legacy of delivering exceptional diagnostic care.
For this reason, Agilus Diagnostics continues its momentum toward becoming the leading provider of diagnostics and laboratory services in India, South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
