Mobile molecular diagnostics lab for COVID-19 testing
Ref No – TR1009
This technology enables mobility of the molecular diagnostics lab which shortens the turnaround time and allows rapid testing of COVID-19 in a large numbers
Mobile testing equipment kit with biosafety cabinet
- Mobile lab (Equipped with Class-II Biosafety Cabinet) to collect and process samples till ReverseTranscription phase (cDNA synthesis) which can then be transferred to the nearest approved facility to perform PCR tests for COVID-19 with a capacity to process 100 samples per day per unit. This would enable community testing and reducing load on existing lab infrastructure.
- Mobile testing lab to perform PCR tests for COVID-19 (with portable thermal cycler of 16 well capacity and portable fluorescence-reader) with a capacity to perform 800 tests per day per unit. This would augment existing lab infrastructure as well enable testing to be taken to more locations including remote areas for surveillance and monitoring purposes.
- Testing of COVID-19
Benefit / Advantage of Technology:
- Less turn around time in COVID-19 testing
- Scales up the testing process
