According to the company’s press statement, the new regional reference laboratory at Patna has the capabilities to conduct a broad spectrum of routine and specialized tests in the fields of molecular diagnostics, cytology, microbiology, serology, haematology, immunology, and routine biochemistry.

By leveraging our extensive network of LupiMitra centers, we will make quality diagnostics services available to patients even in the most remote areas,” Ravindra Kumar, vice president and head of Lupin Diagnostics said in a statement.
