“As the situation demands we are ready to launch and right now have capacity of collecting over 200 samples in a day, which can be expanded to around 1500 samples. We are prepared and equipped to scale our testing to the extent necessary,” said Deepak Sahni, the CEO & Founder of Healthians.

“We have extended our sample collection services to other private labs that have the testing kits but lack the logistical capabilities. This will help in expanding the testing services which is the key factor in fighting against the infection,” he added.

To help ease the process of online booking and create awareness on coronavirus, Healthians had also launched its chatbot two weeks back.
