As they are deployed, the accessibility and affordability of the tests will reduce disparity and benefit individuals across the board.”

Adding to it, Dr Andy Bhattacharjee, CEO, NCGM, USA, said, “The setup has a comprehensive genomic testing facility allowing large-scale clinical and research projects. With the capacity to conduct more than 400 variety of tests, the centre will conduct large-scale clinical diagnostics and genomics projects with greater sample volumes at an unprecedented depth and coverage of the genome. Currently, we are offering COVID RT-PCR testing services at our NC Lab with home sample collection facilities in association with FexEx to help fight the pandemic in the USA too.”
