Caring for Man and Nature
Healthy environment results in Sound Health accompanied by regular diagnosis and proper medication. Therefore, we, at SRL, feel responsible to take care of our community.
Our key management team took the responsibility of planting trees and taking care of HSIIDC Park which is just opposite to our Clinical Reference Lab, Gurgaon. Ever since the inception of this initiative which was taken in April 2009, special occasions are marked by saplings being planted by the Senior Management Executives of SRL.
To support this cause, SRL has been using pulp free paper for all reports that are generated for patients. Also, to further conserve the environment, we have started following the system of e-reporting. Saving paper in turn means saving money which further results to saving our environment/forests. Join the SRL campaign for care, growth, and conservation of mankind and nature.

Mass Screening Project: Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is a liver disease; it makes your liver swell and stops it from working right
In India about 1 lakh people die every year due to illness related to HBV infection. Many chronic carriers of hepatitis B can feel healthy and strong despite having the virus stay in their liver. That is why hepatitis B is called a "silent infection". Early detection can help protect those who live from a hepatitis B infection and decrease their risk of liver cancer through regular medical check-ups.
In December 2005, we conducted a first-of-its-kind Mass screening project for Hepatitis B amongst school students in Chennai.
Walkathon "Pledge for Autism"
Autism is a life long developmental disorder that typically occurs in the first three years of life. It causes impairment or disturbance in three main areas – Social skills, communicative skills and in their repetitive and restricted behaviors.
Lack of knowledge about Autism leaves the parents of affected children in a perplexed state. Keeping this in mind we had conducted an awareness campaign to educate people on the needs of special children in November 2007.
The hemoglobin test is an important part of your health evaluation. The test is used to:
