Bengaluru startup launches India's first at-home testing kit for Coronavirus

Bengaluru-based startup Bione has launched India's first 'rapid' at-home COVID-19 screening kit, which it claims can deliver results in 5-10 minutes. The kit has been approved by Indian Council of Medical Research. The test requires users to clean their finger with an alcohol swab and prick it with a provided needle. The cartridge, then, reads the result from the blood sample. It has been reported that the kit is likely to be priced between INR 2,000 to INR 3,000 depending upon the global supply, to increase its affordability for the masses. Src:
