Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has appreciated the commitment of virologist Ms. Minal Dakhave Bhosale and her team at Mylab Discovery Solutions, Pune in developing India's first testing kit for COVID-19.
Virologist Minal Dakhave Bhosale led from the front to create India's first coronavirus testing kit even when she was in the last stage of her pregnancy. Bhosale gave birth to a baby girl just a day before submitting the kit to the authorities for evaluation.
The Maylab test kit will cost Rs 1,200, a quarter of Rs 4,500 per kit that the government has been spending on testing so far.
The low cost kit can test 100 samples. Her achievement will hugely benefit India's fight against Corona.
