Testing the COVID-19 self-test kit
Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has recently approved a coronavirus self-test kit, ‘CoviSelf,’ developed by biotech firm Mylab Discovery Solutions. It is the first test kit that can be self-administered at home in India. The Mylab App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. The test kit is priced at Rs 250. Each test kit is equipped with a test device, one sterile nasal swab, a pre-filled buffer tube with a cap, and a disposable bag. The rapid antigen Covid test, which is now available in the market, delivers results in 15 minutes. Arun Singh of NDTV puts it to the test on himself.
