Press report: Inno-Gene develops inexpensive and quick coronavirus test
The first News: Specialists from the DNA Research Centre, subsidiary of Polish Inno-Gene Capital Group, have developed an inexpensive and fast COVID-19 RT-LAMP genetic test that gives the result within minutes, with production planned to start next week.
The new test uses a new research method, the Loop Mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT LAMP). The cost of a single test is EUR 18, but it can be reduced when production capacity increases. The RT PCR tests currently used around the world are even several times more expensive.
The first LAMP tests are ready, as first orders have been arriving. An Indian biotech company has ordered 250,000 such tests.
