Gurugram, May 1, 2021: In these times of extreme crisis when RT-PCR testing has become a serious challenge and people are unable to get slots for home testing, SpiceHealth, the healthcare company launched by the promoters of SpiceJet, has set up walk-in RT-PCR testing laboratories in Delhi, Haryana and Maharashtra. SpiceHealth’s RT-PCR testing labs have been successfully conducting the country’s fastest and cheapest RT-PCR tests at just Rs. 699/- with results being delivered in the shortest possible time.
Avani Singh, CEO, SpiceHealth said, “As the country reels under a surge in Covid cases, labs struggle to keep up with the demand and home collection of samples becoming a huge challenge, SpiceHealth’s walk-in RT-PCR testing facility at multiple locations across Delhi, Haryana and Maharashtra aims to address these issues. Our mobile labs are located at landmark, easy to locate, accessible locations. The walk-in facility provides a hassle free and safe testing experience. The only way to counter the spread of the pandemic is to test rampantly and at SpiceHealth we have been innovating constantly to offer medical care at the most affordable cost.”

SpiceHealth launched a new mobile testing laboratory in Nagpur on April 29 and will soon be setting-up laboratories in Aurangabad and Nashik. More testing laboratories will soon be opened in Delhi and other States.
SpiceHealth has been actively involved in the country’s fight against Covid-19. The company has emerged as the fastest growing diagnostic lab in India having conducted more than 2.2 million RT-PCR tests since its launch in Delhi in November 2020.
It is working closely with multiple state governments and hospitals to beef up the supply of oxygen concentrators, ventilators, pulse oximeters, BiPAPs and other medical devices. In the last one week, SpiceHealth has imported more than 2000 oxygen concentrators from Hong Kong to Delhi and many more will shortly be arriving in India.
In November 2020, SpiceHealth disrupted the RT-PCR testing space by offering tests at Rs. 499 only as opposed to the then existing rate of Rs. 2400 in Delhi. SpiceHealth was also the first to introduce the innovative concept of mobile testing laboratories that could be placed in remote areas, in containment zones, in villages where access to hospitals and medical facilities was and remains a challenge.
In January 2021, SpiceHealth launched a first-of-its-kind genome sequencing laboratory at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport to help in identifying and containing the new mutant variants of Covid-19 virus unwittingly carried by passengers travelling from other countries.
SpiceHealth’s first mobile testing facility in Delhi was inaugurated by Sh. Amit Shah, Hon’ble Union Home Minister and Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare. All SpiceHealth laboratories are accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories and Indian Council of Medical Research and each lab can conduct 3,000 tests per day.
