Hitech Diagnostic Centre was started in the year 1986, by Dr. SP. Ganesan MBBS, DCP and Mrs. Malini Parasuraman M.Sc.,(Biochemistry) with the objective of providing quality and reliable laboratory service at an affordable cost.
The objectives have been achieved by selection of proper equipments, high quality reagents, strict internal and external quality assessment and control backed up by well qualified and dedicated professionals. As a consequence now hitech is accepted as one of the leading laboratories in the southern part of India. We are very glad that apart from the Doctors & Hospitals in Chennai more than 600 labs and hospitals in all over India uses our services. Constant up-gradation and introduction of new tests and methods to meet the demands of the clinicians has been one of our major aims. We have introduced many new tests.
