Gurugram: As coronavirus outbreak intensifies across the globe as well as in India, a Gurugram-based clinical laboratory, CORE Diagnostics, on Friday received approval from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) to start testing COVID-19 samples.

To ensure zero contamination of the samples, CORE Diagnostics has set up a separate facility within its high-end Gururgram lab to perform the confirmatory polymerase chain reaction-based (PCR) COVID-19 test with all strains that are approved by the central government.

“Private testing will definitely prove to be crucial to fight the deadly epidemic by widening the testing capabilities of the nation. CORE Diagnostics follows strict processes and will ensure government protocols are followed in handling samples and testing,” said Zoya Brar, CEO and Founder, CORE Diagnostics. (IANS)
