Welcome To The World
Of Thyrocare

Thyrocare is India's first fully automated diagnostic laboratory with a focus on providing quality at affordable costs to laboratories and hospitals in India and other countries.
Thyrocare operates with a Centralized Processing Laboratory (CPL) in Mumbai - India for esoteric tests; and Regional Processing Laboratory in major metro cities of India and other parts of Asia. We have focus on strong technologies, strong brands and strong systems that enable all laboratories to give their clients the best of science and technology at an affordable cost.
With a belief that 'Quality' is the heart of any intelligent management, Thyrocare became one of the first Indian diagnostic laboratories to obtain internationally renowned quality accreditations like ISO 9001-2000 rating as early as 2001, which is now escalated to ISO 9001:2008 and CAP (College of American Pathologists) certification in 2007.

Our clear focus on speed and accuracy further made us the first Indian laboratory to also have an IT enabled, 24×7, fully automated diagnostic laboratory set up covering over 2,00,000 sq. ft. floor space that ensures error-free processing of over 50,000 specimens and over 2,00,000 Clinical Chemistry investigations per night. Our unmatched speed factor is achieved through a combination of air-cargo logistics and IT enabled, barcoded, bi-directional systems that ensures a turnaround time of 4 to 8 hours for processing of samples that arrive at any time of the day or night.

Our Strengths

Quality

Best of the Global brands, Best of their instruments, Best of the technologies, Best of the reagents, Best of the procedures, Best of systems, Best of IT when available to well - trained and highly focused Pathologists, Biochemists, Scientists and Technologists gives Best of the Quality.

System

IT when used ideally to integrate men, machines and methods, it delivers secured, assured, reliable and reproducible solutions even in Diagnostic industry. Analyzers, web-servers and barcodes when integrated, it gives a system that is empowered, controlled and monitored end to end.

Reach

With more and more brands using us as their cost-effective backend laboratory, Our presence grows in more and more cities, countries and continents. Thyrocare today boasts of processing 3 billion investigations in a year and having a capacity to process 10 billion in a year.

Cost

Working on Value makes a lot of sense when the operations are B2C. However when the focus is B2B, volume makes a great sense. Hence, Thyrocare has been working on cost of retail reagents for its services. A fully optimized, highly efficient, seamless automation has ensured men, material and machines delivering highest level of quality services at costs.

Focus

Our clear focus is to facilitate and standardize quality and cost of laboratory services across the world. By helping laboratories to outsource numerical pathology tests (clinical chemistry), the quality of services are ensured by a username / password. Since the costs make economical sense for laboratories which lack volumes, this unique B2B focus helps the industry.

Speed

Laboratory functions 24X7. Air-cargo functions 24 X 7 and 95% of the business is air-cargo driven. Barcoded, Bi-directionally interfaced and web server solutions enhance the speed and allow every laboratory in any continent to operate our machines as if they are present in their floor, generating results and reports within 5 hours of flight touching the runway.
