Suburban Diagnostics, a leader in medical diagnostic services in western India, was one of the first labs that ICMR approved to conduct COVID-19 tests.

We got a timely opportunity to interview Dr. Sanjay Arora, MD of Suburban Diagnostics, to discuss the current challenges and scenario pertaining to COVID-19 testing in India. He shared his insights on key points like:

i) ICMR’s criteria for selecting diagnostic labs.

ii) The PCR Testing Process for COVID-19

iii) WHO’s definition of ‘Suspect Cases’

iv) Safety measures taken at the lab and for home collection executives

On an average, Suburban Diagnostics is conducting 600 COVID tests/day. 

Addressing the doctors and people all over the world, he said “This is an unprecedented situation. There is a lot of public awareness about COVID-19, but we are also seeing a little bit of stigma around the pandemic. So, I would urge people to not ostracize healthcare workers and people who come positive.”
