Ludhiana, August 4

Four new Covid testing labs are being established by the state government, including the one at the College of Animal Biotechnology, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU), Ludhiana.

Dr JPS Gill, Director of Research-cum-nodal officer of the lab, said the GADVASU lab was the first one among the four to get the necessary approval from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) which is a pre-requisite step for opening a Covid-19 lab. He said 10 scientists of the university have been instrumental in the initial setting up of the labs at the government medical colleges in Amritsar and Patiala.

Dr Gill said they would start processing the samples once the necessary kits were received from the BFUHS, Faridkot. To begin with, 20 scientists and lab personnel will be working in two shifts and processing 100-250 samples per day. — TNS
