Retired judge PK Sinha (fourth from left) and Mahavir Cancer Sansthan director B Sanyal (third from left) among others at the workshop on polymerase chain reaction technology. Sanyal said the hospital had received new identity through opening of molecular diagnostic laboratory.
"Before establishment of this lab, samples were sent outside Bihar which was time-consuming and also very costly. Molecular diagnosis is one of fast developing techniques in medical sciences, which helps in early diagnosis of cancer," said Sanyal. Text by Shuchismita Chakraborty, Telegraph picture
