Dear Doctor/ Colleague / Customer,
As the 2015 is coming to a close, Health Diagnostics and Research Institute (HDRI) would like to inform you about the following developments:
The year 2015 has been successful year in a history of HDRI. We have new Laboratory Manager: Anar Musavi, PhD who joined us with considerable experience of clinical nutrition from the past. Also we expanded our instrumentation with state-of-art mass spectrometer to provide you accurate, faster and reliable services. During this year, 2016 we expect considerable improvement in turn-around time, stepwise for each test. We also want to inform you that we work on new panels and tests, which will be announced as soon as they are get ready in 2016.
New Prices for Laboratory Tests
For the past three years, HDRI has been able to keep our prices stable. However, due to increased reagent, material, and shipping costs, we are forced to change the prices for a number of tests, effective January 15th, 2016. The new prices for these tests are the enclosed new Price List, available also on our website.
