The foundation provided financial assistance of more than Rs10m ($121,042) for the procurement of the iLAB unit.

“The unit would act as a collection centre and facilitate transportation of samples and referral testing, bringing advanced diagnostics directly to the community.”

Equipped with Indian-made equipment and staffed with medical professionals, the iLAB unit is expected to facilitate easy access to diagnostics and medical services.

The initiative aims to reach over a million people in the region.

Amrita Hospital administrative director Swami Nijamritananda Puri stated: “We recognise that healthcare facilities in rural and remote areas leave much to be desired, and through initiatives, we intend to aggressively address this gap.”

Puri added: “Carrying the latest diagnostics equipment onboard with the capability to generate lab reports, this mobile unit would serve as a lifeline for the people, enabling early detection and effective management of prevailing health issues.”
