A method to detect COVID-19 will significantly reduce the cost of testing. The method developed by IIT-D will help make the testing affordable for common mass.
Officials from IIT D said that they have received the approval from ICMR.
It is to be noted that the current testing methods are probe-based while the new method is probe-free thereby reducing the cost without compromising on the accuracy.
IIT Delhi is the first academic institute to have obtained the ICMR approval for a real-time PCR based diagnostic.
