PCR testing machines with the capacity for 4500 tests a day not used

Although the PCR testing machines under the Tuberculosis Control Campaign have the capacity to perform about 4,500 tests a day, the Government Medical Laboratory Scientists’ Institute says that such machines have not been used up to now.

Its chairman, Ravi Kumudesh, said the World Health Organization (WHO) had already provided the required PCR test kits, but they have not yet been properly distributed.
