The laboratory testing industry, specifically labs that conduct infectious disease testing, is still in the nascent stage in India. The routine pathology practices are unable to gauge the nature and demands of the infectious disease testing space. In the absence of specialty infectious disease testing laboratory in India, some routine laboratories are trying to fill up the gap but not to much avail. This is basically because of lack of knowledge and focus on the subject. we need some serious player who is a master in the subject and can bring world-class technology, infrastructure and standards for identifying India-specific infections. We need specialist infectious disease laboratories who can overcome the challenges of infectious disease testing through their technical interpretive abilities.
