Bengaluru: Aggregating the fragmented diagnostic sector of the country, four nations have joined forces to launch India’s first global Pathology Laboratory Consortium- Neuberg Diagnostics in Bangalore.
Founded by the healthcare entrepreneur, Dr GSK Velu, the international alliance brings together leading laboratories from India, Sri Lanka, South Africa and UAE under one umbrella, making it one among the top laboratory chains of the country from the day one of its inception, both in footprints and revenue.
Interestingly, the term ‘Neuberg’ in the Neuberg Diagnostics, literally translates to New City or New Neighbourhood apart from also being the namesake in honour of the Father of Modern Biochemistry, Carl Neuberg. It was conceived with the goal to erase geographical borders and make the world of healthcare one, bringing advanced diagnostics affordable to people across the globe. The conglomerate, which has a combined diagnostic expertise of over two centuries, is an alliance of top laboratories like Anand Diagnostic Laboratory, Supratech Micropath, Ehrlich lab, Global labs and Minerva Labs, which have already made their presence in their respective countries and states such as Karnataka, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, South Africa and UAE.
Neuberg will have 3 world class global reference laboratories located in Bangalore, Ahmedabad, and Durban (South Africa) carrying out the advanced range of testing using new generation In vitro diagnostics techniques along with total lab automation and big data analytics tools supported by robust world-class laboratory information system.
