The kit will be available for orders immediately and will be priced around Rs 450, it included. The evolution adds another item to the organization’s suite of testing solutions such as COVID-19 virus, Mylab said.

“After having an inexpensive RT-PCR evaluation to decrease reliance on overseas kits, we launched Compact XL to quicken COVID-19 testing. Now, with the acceptance for an antigen testing kit, we will cover entire spectrum of COVID-19 testing and leave no rock unturned to fight this pandemic,” Mylab Discovery Solutions MD Hasmukh Rawal said.

Health experts feel that to keep up with the pace of infections, India needs a combo of antigen and RT-PCR testing, ” the announcement said.
