PerkinElmer has opened a new diagnostics facility in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, in India. The facility will provide a comprehensive range of diagnostic screening services to hospitals, maternity nursing facilities, diagnostic labs and clinicians throughout India.

Since 1981, PerkinElmer has been providing instruments and services to customers in India, spanning a wide range of markets. The opening of the Chennai laboratory broadens PerkinElmer’s diagnostic offerings to respond to India’s growing need for easier access to technologies that can screen for and help diagnose prenatal and neonatal conditions. Newborn screening helps detect metabolic and other inherited disorders that are treatable only when identified during the first few days of life.

“We are experiencing a steady rise in demand for maternal fetal health and newborn screening solutions in India as hospitals, clinicians and expectant parents strive to ensure healthier outcomes through early detection, diagnosis and proper management of prenatal and neonatal conditions,” said Jayashree Thacker, president, PerkinElmer India. “This state-of-the art laboratory underscores our commitment to our continued expansion plans in India. By increasing our capacity to accommodate higher testing volumes, offer a comprehensive and growing menu of diagnostic assays, and provide a hands-on experience with our innovative technologies, we are further supporting India’s healthcare requirements.”

The Chennai laboratory extends PerkinElmer’s capabilities in India with a widened set of assays related to cytogenetics and molecular diagnostics. PerkinElmer will also provide customer service and support, along with product training and demonstrations, at the Chennai laboratory. A newborn screening application facility within the lab will showcase PerkinElmer’s programs and includes visual aids, equipment platforms and application software to support key stakeholders.
