The test is available in all cities in India and the company has made arrangements for collection of the blood sample from home/office. The test can be availed by any person above the age of 35 and who has no previous known history of having any cancer.
Speaking at the launch, Dr. D. Akolkar, Director of Research and Innovation said that it is a proud moment not only for the company but also for the country as the test has given a pole vault position in cancer research. He also said that the company, working with a frugal budget has beaten the worldwide competition which is funded with billions of dollars and government support. Dr. Akolkar said that research in cancer is an imperative of recent times and Datar Cancer Genetics has committed significant resources not only for early detection of cancer but towards making the treatment of stage IV patients more effective and possibly curative.
Datar Cancer Genetics Limited has been accredited by NABL and TUV for ISO 9001:2008 for medical reporting and has a modern, differential pressure molecular oncology facility in Nasik, India. With the launch of the Early Warning Test, the company has entered into a USD 20 billion market worldwide.
