India, April 14, 2021: One of India’s leading diagnostic laboratories, Neuberg Supratech, announced the launch of Drive-Through Testing Facility at the GMDC Ground in collaboration with Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) today. The software is developed by Sufalam Solutions Pvt Ltd. This is the first-of-its-kind initiative in the state to assist in ramping up COVID-19 RTPCR testing capacity.
