Diagnostics and Screening



Compendium of Diagnostics and Screening assays
The online compendium lists all diagnostics and screening assays available across the world and their status as approved by different regulatory agencies including USFDA, Europe (CE-IVD), China FDA, India (ICMR/CDSCO) apart from others. Please feel free to contribute to the collection, if you do not find a particular listing.

RT-PCR Protocols for Research Laboratories testing SARS-nCoV-2 
A compilation of Standard Operating Procedures/Protocols for Resarch Laboratories offering testing for SARS-nCoV-2 using RT-PCR.(For Research Use Only). The protocol was compiled by Sridhar Sivasubbu, Sheetal Gandotra and Vivek Rao Labs at CSIR-IGIB

COVID-19 Primer/Probe Collection
The primer/probe information for most of the diagnostic kits are not readily available in public domain. We hope to make this information available for the general interest of public. Such a collection would help understand and compare the efficacy of the reagents and also be able to ascertain whether the virus evolution would have an impact on the accuracy of the reagents. [Contribute to the collection]
