ICMR approval for low cost COVID-19 test, IIT Delhi mode

-

The entire world, including India, currently suffers from COVID-19, that is, the Corona virus. Meanwhile, finding the coronavirus patient in front of the government and quarantining him away from others is proving to be a huge challenge. So far we have relied on the device from China to verify coronavirus infection among people, but recently some flaws in the device were found after which the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) has banned those kits. Meanwhile, the Delhi-based Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) has achieved great success. IIT Delhi has found a new way to detect Kovid-19 disease, which has proven to be cheaper and more reliable than the Chinese device. On Thursday ICMR also approved this method created by IIT Delhi. Let me tell you that this method developed by IIT Delhi will be able to test for COVID-19 infection at very low cost. What will benefit a large number of Indians from this. IIT Delhi is the first ICMR approved academic institute for the research method developed by ‘Polymerize Chain Reaction (PCR)’. An official said this method was tested at ICMR and the result was 100. The percentage turned out to be correct. Similarly, IIT-Delhi became the first academic institute by which ICMR approved the research method developed by the PCR method. “This is the first non-probe method for Kovid-19 that has been approved by ICMR. This will help us verify for a lower cost. This method does not require a fluorescent probe, so it can be investigated on a large scale. The team of researchers is trying to make the device available at a low price as soon as possible through negotiations with the industry. ”The researchers at IIT-Delhi have an RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequence from the Kovid-19 genome and SARS COV- 2. This method has been developed by doing a comparative analysis of RNA is an integral part of the cell of all living organisms, including humans, and performs many important functions, such as protein synthesis Professor Vivekanandan Perumal, one of the main members of the research team, told ‘PTI-Bhasha’: “Through comparative sequence analysis, we identified some special regions in Kovid-19 that are not They are present in no other coronavirus in humans. . This gave us a way to detect Kovid-19 in particular. ” The IIT team of researchers states that the research method they have developed may be available to the general public at very low cost. The research team includes PhD researchers Prashant Pradhan, Ashutosh Pandey and Praveen Tripathi. Other members of the team are postdoctoral researchers, Dr. Parul Gupta and Dr. Akhilesh Mishra. In addition to this, the main team members include Professor Vivekanandan Perumal, Manoj B. Menon, James Gomes and Vishwajit Kundu.
