India develops its own Swine Flu test kit

AS THE Swine Flu cases go on increasing in the country, India recently came up with its indigenous swine flu detection kit. As of now, 548 cases were recorded last week which also makes it highest for this year. The number of people who died due to swine flu stands at 38 between July 19-25. Taking a note of the problem, three companies from India have successfully developed H1N1 detection kits.
 
The companies, which  have launched the detection kit include Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Imperial Life Sciences and Ocimum and the test results have been given green signal following a review by the ICMR director general, Dr V M Katoch.
 
As of now India imports detection kits from United States based Applied Biosystems and Swiss company Roche Diagnostics which are expensive. The kits developed by the Indian companies will cost just one third of the price of the international kits. The ministry of health had issued prior testing protocols and guidelines on how the product must be evaluated.
