CTech Labs is an Indonesian-based private research institution founded by Dr Warsito P Taruno in 15 May 2003, which specializes in developing the tomography technology for industrial and medical applications. CTech Labs also develops medical technologies in cancer diagnostic and therapy. The laboratory is located in the Business Technology Incubation Center (BTIC) complex within the newly built business area Alam Sutera, South Tangerang, Indonesia. BTIC, run by Society of Indonesian Scientists and Engineers (MITI), was created to promote research products for industrial applications and to boost the emergence of technology-based companies in Indonesia.

CTech Labs employs about 30 researchers, half of which hold master and doctoral degrees from leading world’s universities as well as top Indonesian universities. Each year no less than 25 undergraduate as well as graduate students from Indonesian universities and abroad are conducting research activities related to their thesis at CTech Labs. There are various research groups under CTech Labs, including Center for Electronic Science and Technology, Center for Non-Destructive Testing and Process Imaging, Center for High Performance Computing, Center for Medical Physics and Cancer Research, and Cancer Research Clinic dedicated to conducting a clinical trial of cancer therapy using very low power electrical field irradiation.
