As cases spike, ICMR wants manufacturers to make antigen kits; only 1 approved so far

The Indian Council For Medical Research, while arguing that it’s important to scale up testing capacity to the maximum possible levels, has invited manufacturers to make rapid antigen kits that are affordable and provide quick results. So far, ICMR has approved only one rapid antigen detection assay from SD Biosensor which has branches in Gurugram, China and Korea.
