Additionally, Neuberg is equipped to conduct futuristic tests such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, molecular biology, and digital pathology with advanced systems like NovaSeq6000. 2 of these are also state-of-the-art reference laboratories. Collectively, these 10 laboratories are capable to process about 10,000 samples in a day and deliver results within the given turnaround time which differs from test to test while maintaining the best-in-class quality.

Additionally, to introduce state-of-the-art technologies in India and other developing countries, and elevate the precision diagnostic landscape in the evolving personalized medicine arena, we have established technology incubation centers in the United States and certain European countries. Over the long-term, our aim is to bring all technologically advanced equipment to India.”
