Covid-19 pandemic has impacted millions of lives globally. The symptoms are similar to those of influenza, both being contagious respiratory illness. As the public’s concern of contracting Covid-19 continued to rise, flu symptoms were frequently mistaken for those of Covid-19. Performing separate tests for detection of Covid-19 and Influenza can be time consuming, costly & a cumbersome affair. HiMedia’s MBPCR262 being a multiplex kit eliminates the need for separate tests thereby significantly reducing the time & resources.

Dr. Kavita Khadke, Director of HiMedia’s Molecular Biology Division (HiGenoMB®) says ‘’An early diagnostic tool that would help to differentiate between Flu and Covid-19 was the need of the hour. Time is of essence; this kit can give results in a short span, enabling rapid and appropriate detection that could help in early diagnosis & treatment.
