As the numbers continue to increase due to the second wave, Mylabs has now introduced mobile testing labs across the country to address the increasing demand for coronavirus testing.

Speaking with YourStory, Hasmukh Rawal, MD at Mylab Discovery Solutions, revealed that the startup spent months working to launch the mobile van solution to enable thousands of tests every day.

“We are deploying 50 ICMR-approved and NABL certified mobile vans that will act as COVID-19 testing labs. These vans can be parked anywhere and are powered by our Compact XL automating machine. Each van can conduct over 1,000 tests on a daily basis,” he adds.

After receiving the commercial approval for its Mylab PathoDetect COVID-19 Qualitative PCR kit in March 2020, the startup had partnered with Serum India CEO Adar Poonawalla and AP Globale Chairman Abhijit Pawar to scale up its production.

Hashmukh claimed that currently the production has been ramped up to conduct “six to seven lakh test per day as opposed to 10,000 in the beginning”.

Apart from this, Mylab also had also introduced the Pathocatch COVID-19 Antigen Rapid testing kit. It had also launched Compact XL, a machine to automate the manual processes of molecular diagnostic tests including COVID-19 RT-PCR tests.
