Now 1 lakh tests per day will be done by using real-time PCR based diagnostic kit
MyLab Discovery Solutions is the first indigenous company to screen and sample COVID-19 from samples of people exhibiting flu-like symptoms with a real-time PCR-based molecular diagnostic kit. TDB has supported him in which he will accelerate the production of kits through automation. With this, their current capacity will increase from 30000 tests per day to one lakh tests per day. The company hopes to complete the automation within the next few months. This kit has been approved by CDSCO (Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation) and ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research). The kit will be put to work in a very short time. This can prove to be very effective for the country.
TDB invited companies for COVID test innovations
TDB (Technology Development Board) invited Indian companies and enterprises to come forward to prevent infection spreading, control, laboratory support, prevent the rapid spread of COVID 19, isolation of critically ill patients and problems such as ventilator management etc to give their technical support with innovations.
TDB had given the confidence that the company would come forward to commercialize indigenous technologies, approving them financial support. Mylab was one of the companies to respond to the invitation.
DST secretary praises technical support, PCR based kit
Professor Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary DST (Department of Science & Technology) & Chairman TDB, expressed, “Work in the times of virus has taught us an unprecedented intensity of purpose achieved with speed, efficiency, and quality, which should become the new normal post-COVID-19. Having a team of young professionals with energy and expertise always works!”
This TDB call’s objective is to monitor, infection prevention/control, laboratory support, and in particular, the country’s core capabilities in the context of isolation and ventilator management of critically ill patients to prevent/prevent the spread of COVID-19. Had to be strengthened. Since the critical need of the hour is to increase testing, isolation and contact tracing so that a series of outbreaks can be broken, TDB has prioritized the first set of proposals related to these categories and finalized support after stringent evaluation Relation to experts in government and educational institutions like IITs, IISc, AIIMS, ICMR, DST, and DBT The process.
