IIT Delhi has developed a low-cost Covid-19 test named Corosure. It has been billed as the world’s most affordable probe free RT-PCR based Covid-19 diagnostic kit

Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank and Minister of State (HRD) Sanjay Dhotre launched the test kit on July 15, Wednesday

The base price for the RT-PCR test kit developed by IIT Delhi is INR 300. Even after adding the RNA isolation and laboratory charges, the cost of the kit is likely to go up to INR 650, which is still cheaper compared to the currently available kits in the market.

The test kit is also quick and can produce results within 3 hours and is approved by the Indian Institute of Medical Research (ICMR), the apex medical research body in the country.
