While testing has been the call of the hour at times of this crisis a Kolkata based firm has seemed to crack the code. The firm has developed a real-time testing kit that can produce results in 90 minutes. Yes, in just 1 and a half hours it can tell whether one is coronavirus positive or not.

The firm named GCC Biotech said that’s had developed the kit and received approval from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). The company has said that it has made 1 crore testing kits so far. What’s more pleasing is that the testing cost is way less than the current Rs 4, 500.

This indigenous ‘real-time’ Covid-19 test kit costs only Rs 500 for a single test. That it can do 9 tests ina cost at which we are doing 1 test. After 2 months of R&D, we made this kit. It is cost-effective as it contains all reagents produced by us. We’ve made 1 crore test kits and have 40 lakh in store. If India can do 3 lakh tests per day, we’ll be able to support the government without any problems“, said Managing Director of GCC Biotech India.

Producing reagents is an advantage of the company. We are supplying the reagents across the country. We have the capacity to manufacture 1 Crore test kits per month“, he adds.
