Aster Medcity announced the launch of the Advanced Center for Diagnostics and Research which will immensely contribute to and support all the diagnostic needs of various medical specialities. The centre will soon be equipped to perform molecular diagnosis that has been the backbone of Covid management and in the identification of emerging infectious diseases like Nipah and Monkey pox.
‘The center will conduct advanced research in various clinical areas and it can surely bring positive and impactful transformation in the society, said Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director Aster DM Healthcare explaining the vision of the centre.
The center comes to play a vital role in laboratory diagnostics by identifying infectious diseases. This means needy patients will be able to get the best available diagnostics immediately. Apart from the diagnosis of infectious disease syndromes, it also helps in chronic illness and genetic/developmental diseases in Neurology, Pediatrics, Rheumatology and Oncology where the need to conduct specialized tests are crucial in the precise diagnosis, treatment and prognostication. Normally, many of these tests are sent out of the state and country. But with the center, tools for molecular diagnostics are brought into our health care system. This center of Excellence in Infectious Diseases ensures top status in not only primary health but tertiary and quaternary health care in clinical expertise, technology and diagnostics.
