With the Indian Council of Medical Research giving the nod, HLL Life Care Limited is all set to launch the production of its Rapid Test Kit known as Make Sure Kit. The HLL is said to produce about two lakh make sure kits within ten days.
The Make sure Rapid test kit is produced from HLL’s Manesar factory near Gurgaon in Haryana. The Indian Council of Medical Research approved the antibody based testing kit of HLL.
The Makesure kit is a one-step IgM/IgG antibody detection. The cost of the test kit is Rs 400.
More people could be tested for coronavirus affected people once the Rapid Test Kit is made available. The results using the Rapid test Kit can be got within 30 minutes. Apart from the Rapid Test Kit, HLL also plans to develop Viral Transport Medium (VTM) kits. These kits are in short supply in India. HLL is also producing hand sanitiser, “Medigard” to keep coronavirus away.
HLL Life Care Limited is the first public sector company in the country to get approval from the Indian Council of Medical Research for manufacturing Rapid Antibody kit for coronavirus detection.
