Thyrocare prides itself as India’s first fully automated clinical chemistry laboratory with a focus on providing quality results at affordable costs to clients like laboratories, doctors, hospitals and organizations as well as patients from across the country and abroad. Our Centralized Processing Laboratory consists of 120,000 sq. ft. of track automation system that has a capacity to process over 50,000 samples in a day. Situated in Navi Mumbai, the laboratory operates 24×7, processing over 40,000 samples a day with a turnaround time of 4-5 hours.
Our Central Processing Laboratory situated in Navi Mumbai is a state-of-the-art, fully automated diagnostic laboratory equipped with the most advanced instrumentation from leading international brands. With a minimum but highly qualified workforce, the laboratory is driven by barcoded and bi-directionally interfaced system and an intelligent laboratory information system (LIS).
Barcoding and bi-directional interfacing
At Thyrocare, we rely on efficient systems for smooth and error-free processing of 25,000 samples that we receive each day. We are the first, and so far, the only diagnostic laboratory to have introduced barcoding system across our 25,000 collection points nationwide. Every sample is identified by the barcode on the vial. Through this system, the moment the vial is mounted on the automation instrument, it is automatically routed to the correct analyzer for processing and simultaneously output data is synchronized with the software to generate and upload the reports on the website, making the entire process fast and error-free.
Thus, our systems ensure that right tests are done on the right specimen, and right results are delivered to the right people at the right time and right cost. Not only does barcoding ensure error-free reporting, it also helps in curtailing the time consumed or lost in pre-analytical procedures and offers a smooth, hassle free and efficient operation.
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”.
The endeavor of Thyrocare has always been that to provide utmost quality in every stage of service – right from collection of sample to processing to delivery of reports. Our systems, processes, man-power and IT ensure the highest level of perfection and timely efficacy in each delivery.

Our Backend Prowess
Through air-cargo, more than 25,000 samples from all parts of India are brought to CPL. This is made possible by a strong logistics network of Thyrocare whose well coordinated efforts ensure that the samples reach the CPL every night, same night, before mid-night. These are meticulously collected, collated, checked for sample integrity, temperature and other aspects of Pre-analytical Quality Control and then stored appropriately.
IT helps in seamless integration of all the processes, work orders are downloaded from the web server, barcodes are scanned and specimens are arranged accordingly for processing. More than 25,000 different samples are processed every night and the reports are directly uploaded back in the website for our customer to see.
