"For neuro-psychiatry area, we have collaborated with a company called AB-Biotics for bringing a test called neuropharmagen in India for people suffering from depression which is a huge problem in the country," said Gupta.

Oncology is another area, which the company wants to focus on and for this, "Among others, we have also partnered with the US-based firm Agendia for their tests, MammaPrint and BluePrint."

The company is also in the process of entering into more exclusive tie-ups with various other companies and is also looking for expanding its workforce for future growth, said Gupta.
