The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has validated the efficacy of COVIRAP for the detection of COVID-19.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has validated the efficacy of COVIRAP for the detection of COVID-19. The diagnostic technology has been developed by researchers at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.This COVID-19 diagnostic testing method has been designed to be fairly easy to conduct and affordable as well and can produce results within one hour.

The new testing method implements a highly reliable and accurate molecular diagnostic procedure that can be conducted in an ultra-low-cost portable device unit developed by the IIT, Kharagpur research team. The test results are rendered via a custom-made mobile application for dissemination without requiring manual interpretation.

 
The novel diagnostic platform, developed by IIT, Kharagpur researchers has been subjected to rigorous testing protocols as per ICMR guidelines, at ICMR-NICED, an Institute authorized by ICMR.
 
Various commercial units have already approached IIT, Kharagpur for technology licensing to enable a rapid reach of this innovation to the common people.
