HiMedia Laboratories is geared up to face a possible outbreak of Monkey pox Virus with Extraction and RTPCR Detection Kits.

Running ahead of time, HiGenoMB®, the Molecular Biology section of HiMedia Labs is prepared for what can become the next pandemic – Monkeypox. It is amongst the first few Indian multi nationals to come up with the Viral DNA Extraction and Monkeypox RTPCR Kits for detection of the virus.

Swab samples from suspected individuals can be processed using HiPurA® Viral DNA/RNA Purification Kit (MB582) that is based on the silica column format and aids in quick and simultaneous extraction of the viral DNA and RNA from the sample.

Subsequent detection by HiPurA® Monkeypox Virus Multiplex Probe PCR Kit (MBPCR269), a Taq Man based Probe PCR kit that can accurately detect the virus with utmost sensitivity and specificity; even 3.31 copies/µl of the viral gene.

The overall time required for the Molecular Test is approximately 90 minutes.

After capturing the global market with its complete portfolio of COVID testing products, the RnD team has developed kits for Monkey pox testing that is in the process of receiving ICMR validation. These kits are available for research use right now.

Dr. Rajas V Warke – Director, Virology and Molecular Biology, Himedia Laboratories, says “Being ahead of time in terms of molecular diagnostic needs explains our preparedness for the challenging times in future. Our team strives to ensure that the country would always be self-reliant in terms of Molecular Detection kits.”
