The new company plans to sell a full range of blood and urine test automation solutions in clinical chemistry, hematology, hemostasis, immunoassay, urinalysis, diabetes, critical care, and microbiology. An initial investment of Rs. 25 crore has been earmarked for the new subsidiary and another Rs. 50-75 crore has been allocated for acquisition of a local plant in Brazil, which will enable the company to take advantage of incentives offered for products manufactured in Brazil.
