Indian diagnostics company Advatech is planning to open a new diagnostics facility in Leeds with a nearly one-million pound partnership with a local company here, while it will also launch an ambulance app here.
Advatech, announced a new private diagnostics centre in Leeds following a partnership worth between 800,000 - 1 million pounds. Nationwide Pathology would be Advatech's delivery partner.
"As a result of the match-making to relevant local businesses that the bioConclave team and the Leeds Local Enterprise Partnership were able to facilitate, we are delighted to announce our first centre in the UK," Advatech's Medical Director Bala Raju said.
Advatech would also be launching a new ambulance app in the UK later this year that for the first time will allow an ambulance to be booked through a mobile app. They are in discussions with a London-based ambulance company as part of the roll-out.
"We're also well set to launch our mobile ambulance app later this year, which will play a huge role in making it easier for patients to book an ambulance direct," Raju added.
These tie-ups were facilitated at the bioConclave 2015, held last week, which was instituted to promote opportunities and develop commercial collaborations between the UK and Indian health sectors.
BioConclave will be held every year - this year's conference and trade mission was the inaugural platform - and seeks to promote the huge opportunities for UK and Indian health and biotech companies.
