MedGenome Labs Ltd., the leading genetic diagnostics company in India, announced investment by HDFC Ltd., HDFC Life and HDFC Asset Management to complete its Series C funding of USD 40 mil.


MedGenome will utilize this capital to expand the clinical genomic testing market by penetrating all the Tier II and Tier III cities and democratize the critical genetic tests like noninvasive pre-natal screening (NIPT) and new born genetic testing.  The company plans to establish more genetic centers in hospitals across the country to support clinicians and to enable patients to take informed decisions.


MedGenome has completed over 100,000 genomic tests and supported clinicians in diagnosing more than 40% unresolved cases. About 6% of the children born in India have inherited pediatric diseases which is double the worldwide occurrence rate.


"We believe understanding genetic information can have a big impact on Indian healthcare industry through early detection of disease risk and development of new medicines. We are very happy to see an Indian company take a lead in a deep technology area like genomics and have decided to support MedGenome in its endeavor to make genetic tests affordable and accessible widely." said Mr. Deepak Parekh, Chairman, HDFC Group.


"MedGenome’s goal is to significantly reduce the burden of inherited diseases in India and assist clinicians in implementing precision medicine. We are excited about partnering with HDFC to increase adoption of genomics across India." said Sam Santhosh, Founder and Chairman of MedGenome.
