Dry Chemistry at Orange Health Labs increases result accuracy

What is dry chemistry and why is it better? Orange Health Labs answers.



Orange Health Labs is an innovator in the diagnostic industry, working on multiple fronts to enable avant-garde business practices in the country.

One of which is ‘dry chemistry’. Founders Dhruv Gupta and Tarun Bhambra, both with extensive experience in top companies such as Practo and ITC, founded this health-tech company in December 2020.

Orange Health Labs is India’s fastest diagnostic laboratory today, working on the premise of equating urgency with care. The founders here work for the craft and this passion filters down to every employee in the firm. Naturally, numbers follow.

More simply explained, ‘dry chemistry’ machines don’t use water and that reduces the chances of errors. Very few individual entities in India today can boast of this level of medical technology and at Orange Health Labs, this is just one of the many processes that help them achieve 4 Sigma-certified quality.

Technically, dry chemistry machines such as Vitrose eliminate sources of error by not requiring external interventions such as the use of water or washing. Its unique multi-layered dry slide technology, using a single disposable micro slide for each test, results in improved precision and accuracy. Contamination in the water used in traditional methods can affect the reaction, and failure to properly clean the surface can lead to inaccuracies, known as the “carry over” effect.

What exactly makes a lab sophisticated?

It is the procedures, hygiene, technology and technicians.

At these facilities across 5 cities in India, nothing is more than what can be chewed. Without waiting for batch processing, blood samples are tested as they come in at the hospital-grade labs across Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and Hyderabad. Premium machines help achieve this speed. These machines are computer-controlled and automatic robotic instruments which are capable of generating 650 tests per hour. This is only one of the facilitators that helps the company deliver to speed. The others are professionally trained medics, re-engineered logistics, long working hours and high-end med-tech backup. To top this, EVERYTHING IS END TO END CONTROLLED FOR QUALITY, with external quality assurance as required.

Why is speed important in diagnostics you may ask?

Orange Health aims to usher in a new age in diagnostics.
-They understand that patients and doctors need results as quickly as possible to get to the right treatment.
-Getting fast results reduces the time spent in hospitals and clinics and sub-optimal lines of treatment and thus is more cost-effective.

-Fast diagnostic lab tests can help in continuous monitoring of complex conditions, providing a more comprehensive picture of a patient’s health and enabling better disease management.
-With rapid testing, healthcare professionals can make accurate diagnoses earlier, reducing the risk of misdiagnosis and ensuring patients receive the appropriate treatment, thus increasing accuracy.

This is why they have re-engineered their supply chain and lab operations to deliver the fastest results in the industry. Additionally, they have a stringent quality assurance program in partnership with US Bio-Rad, AIIMS Delhi and CMC Vellore. These assurance bodies are responsible for ensuring there are no discrepancies in the results.

How does Orange Health Labs deliver this 4 Sigma quality at such competitive pricing and speed?

  • It is a digital-first platform currently
  • It has the trust of doctors and customers
  • It offers maximum convenience and value

Here’s how:

Users get access to a world-class lab from the comforts of their homes. Without having to walk out of their living rooms, this hospital-grade lab reaches their home within 60 minutes of ordering tests. For preventive full-body checkups or monitoring complex health issues, there is a range of tests one can choose from. What’s more? Currently, they even have a free home sample collection drive going on. Available from 6.30 AM to 10 PM on all 7 days a week, the team has the longest working hours. They believe they work long hours because health does not have a clock-out time. “How many times have you woken up feeling something wrong, but pushed through the day only to feel miserable in the evening?” Orange Health is solving that, no matter what time of the day. With a vein-to-testing time of 3 hours and report delivery time within 6 hours, this is an ICMR and NABL-certified lab out there to solve for new age discerning users.

The global body has said that the XBB.1.16 variant has a similar to its predecessor XBB.1.5, but contains additional changes in the spike protein, adding that lab studies have revealed that XBB.1.16 show signs of increased infectivity as well as potentially increased pathogenicity.
