The Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) and The CSIR has developed a new efficient RT-PCR test method. The ICMR has approved and is now ready to be adopted in the entire country. 

The usual RT-PCR is done by taking a small sample of the saliva and then this sample is tested for the presence of the virus. The presence of the virus while display a positive result and a negative result vice in its absence. The newly approved test method by the ICMR is known as the "Dry Swab." The method of the dry swab is the collection of sample from the nasal cavity in a dry state. The dry swab technique is said to be highly efficient, and a quicker result will be possible. All medical, healthcare experts, hospitals and testing centres were quite uncertain about how to normalize and release accurate results of rising tests every day. Apart from releasing the test results, the original method contained a potential risk of viral transmission. Also, compared to the older process, the packing density of the samples through dry swab is relatively less and promises zero possibility of contamination.  

But the current approval will change the RT-PCR game and help diagnostic centres across the country ramp up testing at a more incredible place. Apart from testing centres who will be mentored to perform this test, the general public can now take part in understanding how this test works and how they can test themselves and obtain a result of being positive or negative. CCMB has started slots for individuals who want to learn this and test and aims to provide kits and train 500 diagnostic centres across the country in learning the new and safer way of RT-PCR. Also, the license to utilize this technology has already been given to big diagnostic centres in the city, along with a test kit.
