Problem being addressed:
Testing is amongst the most needed intervention in India to arrest the spread of Covid19. WHO has called on nations to expand testing with a call – ‘Test, test, test’. India has so far only conducted 30k tests - a mere 25 tests/million vs 3000/m in US, 7000/m in Korea, 8000/m in Italy partly due to a lack of adequate testing kits.
Mylab has created a RT-PCR kit which is manufactured domestically, has a local supply chain and is approved by ICMR. The kit is cheaper, more accurate and faster than its international peers.
