Focusing on preventive health care, Thyrocare has become the first Mumbai-based private laboratory to provide COVID testing. In the initial phase, Thyrocare has started the test in Mumbai. Once lockdown is lifted, it will make the services available for metros and other cities too.

Dr A Velumani, Chairman and Managing Director of Thyrocare Technologies Ltd said, “Thyrocare wishes to keep it affordable, reach to the bottom of the pyramid and produce significant impact in the nation’s fight against #COVID. Partnering with local hospitals is the best way to disseminate this solution countrywide.”

:Though are serving at the door steps of patients in city of Mumbai, we are more keen to explore the BtoB model by partnering with local hospitals in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Pune and Nashik,” said he.
