Jorhat: A scientist from Assam has developed a kit to test (diagnosis of Omicron) whether a person is infected with the Omega variant of the corona virus. This kit will be able to diagnose Omekron infection in just two hours. This kit is made entirely in India (Made in India). It uses a hydrolysis RT-PCR system for testing.
When the fear of the global epidemic Corona subsides, a new variant of it causes fear among the people. Scientists believe that the Omicron variant is much more dangerous than the other Corona variants and spreads faster.

Dr. Borkotoki and the ICMR team have developed a real-time RTPCR test kit. This test kit saves time and will prove to be very useful at airports. (diagnosis of Omicron)
This kit has been found to be 100% accurate during lab testing. The results are now being reviewed at the National Virology Institute in Pune. The review report will be made public soon. The responsibility of making this kit has been given to GCC Biotech, a Kolkata based biotech company, which will start manufacturing the kit in PPP mode in next 3 to 4 days. It is hoped that the Made in India Kit will be available in the market next week. (diagnosis of Omicron)
