We are continuously engaged in research activities along with mentoring and training,and released an advisory with ICMR on pooling of COVID-19 samples which economizes the turnaround time, reagent and manpower of RTPCR testing . The advisory released by ICMR was well adapted by RTPCR laboratories at national level too.
