HiGenoMB® – HiMedia Laboratories committed to combating spread of COVID-19 is thrilled to announce that the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) has granted approval for two more important COVID Testing products that also recently got the CE-IVD approval.

Hi-PCR COVID-19 Detection Kit-Dry Swab method (MBT189)

This extraction free method assesses dry swab samples and supports direct Real time PCR post sample collection. This is an ideal solution to encourage smaller laboratories that cannot afford high end automation and reduces on dependency on skilled technicians to venture into molecular diagnostics.

Hi-PCR COVID-19 Triplex Probe PCR Kit (MBPCR255)

This three gene multiplex PCR kit can detect two target COVID genes, viz. (N) gene and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) gene along with an internal process control with maximum sensitivity. It is an alternative to our CDSCO approved 4 gene Hi-PCR® Coronavirus (COVID-19) Probe PCR Kit (MBPCR243).
