DiAGSure Mucormycosis Detection Kit
DiAGSure Mucormycosis Detection Kit is an affordable kit for diagnosing mucormycosis Â– a fungal infection found in several of the COVID-19 cases. Developed by scientists from West Bengal, the kit significantly reduce the price of diagnosis as it minimizes the import dependence.
The newly developed kit uses the Â“TaqMan PrincipleÂ” that increases the specificity of quantitative PCR tests used for detecting infectious diseases. This can help in the early detection of mucormycosis and prevent deaths caused by the same. It received the approval of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation under the Directorate General of Health Service.
