NEW DELHI: ICMR has recommended coronal testing using Rapid Antigen Testing Equipment in areas of disease control.
The impact of the corona virus continues to increase in India. The Central and State Governments take various steps to control the spread of the disease. But these are recommended by the Indian Institute of Medical Research (ICMR).
According to a report on the epidemic, SD Biosensor, a South Korean company, has developed Rapid Antigen Testing Kit (Standard Que covid 19 Dictation Kit) to detect coronavirus infection. In this tool, the results are visible within 15 minutes of the test sample being placed. This requires no laboratory testing. Can be easily seen with bare eyes.
Just 30 minutes is enough. This card can be cleared after testing. We ask that coronal testing be carried out using Rapid Antigen Testing Equipment in the area of disease control. If no infection is detected in this test, RT-PCR testing should be done to further confirm it. RT-PCR testing is not required if infection is definitive. This is because if the infection is confirmed in the Rapid test, the same results as in the PCR test. It is stated thus.
