SRL Ranbaxy, South Asia's largest pathology laboratory network which is certified by the College of American Pathologists, signed the agreement with Gulf Markets International (GMI).
In preparation to launching their services in Bahrain, SRL Ranbaxy organised a lecture here on the 'Role of referral lab in distant testing especially in the field of Hemato-oncology.'
The lecture was delivered by SRL Ranbaxy executive director Amar Dasgupta.
The agreement is aimed at providing world-class pathology services in Bahrain, said SRL Ranbaxy business development manager - Gulf and Middle East Mohammed Zafar.
GMI chief executive officer Arvind Roy said the move was in line with Bahrain's drive to become the hub of 'affordable healthcare to all in the entire Middle East.'
'By developing the lab business, we can deliver quality diagnosis in this part of the world,' he said.
'Samples will be collected from leading private hospitals and clinics and sent to the SRL Ranbaxy lab in Mumbai for carrying out some rare tests which are not available in Bahrain.
