The Tata group on Monday launched a test kit to test the corona. The company claims that this kit will give the test results in 90 minutes. The kit will be manufactured at the Chennai plant. The plant has a capacity to produce 1 million kits a month. The company has developed this kit with CSIR-IGIB.
According to Tata Medical and Diagnostic Limited, this test kit has been approved by the government. It is easier to use than the kits that are available now. The result will also be more accurate. With this help, large-scale tests will be conducted in the country.
Fully developed in the country
Pani says that it has also been approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research and Drug Controller General of India (DCGI). Soon the kit will be available in diagnostic centers and hospitals across India. However, its price is not yet decided.
Company CEO Girish Krishnamurthy said that we want to make Corona testing more accurate and reliable. Emphasis is also on increasing its reach and availability. The most important thing is that it has been fully developed in India.
Done in 100 days
CEO Krishnamurthy stated that we have worked very closely in partnership with IGBI Lab. All the scientific information of the lab used in the preparation of this product. After about 100 days we are now in a position to launch it. This is a paper strip based technique. We have worked very hard to prepare it. This kit does not require any machine. This results in much fewer steps to test than the kits currently exist.
