The Indian Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Tata MD have collaborated to enhance access to Covid-19 testing in tier II and III towns as well as rural areas across India. The move aims to manage any future Covid-19 surge and testing requirements. As per the agreement, CSIR’s network of labs will be used to increase capacity to remote areas, while the RT-PCR CRISPR test will be conducted using the Tata MD CHECK SARS-CoV-2 test kits.

Co-Diagnostics has announced that its Logix Smart SARS-CoV-2 DS (direct saliva) test has sought regulatory authorisation to be sold as an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) for Covid-19 diagnosis in countries that accept the CE mark. The company also announced that the test is being sold from its Utah-based certified facility. The test eliminates RNA extraction of the samples, which the company believes increases the throughput and lowers Covid-19 testing costs, as well as the cost of other pathogen tests.

Roche has announced that its cobas SARS-CoV-2 Nucleic acid test was granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This is the first test Covid-19 RT-PCR test that can detect SARS-CoV-2 infection among symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals in just 20 minutes. It runs on the cobas Liat System, and will also be available in countries that accept the CE mark.
