Mathura. The 20th Kovid-19 Testing Lab of the state has been prepared at Deendayal Veterinary University of Mathura in Uttar Pradesh and the process of testing of samples will start from Monday. Bhuvnesh Kumar, Principal Secretary, Livestock, inspected the testing lab and expressed satisfaction over the arrangements.
Dr. SK Garg, Dean of the University, said on Friday that the lab was completed more than ten days ago but could not start due to some shortcomings. Due to the lockdown, where the testing kit and some chemicals were delayed from Bangalore, the burn unit could not be installed in this lab. He told that kits and chemicals had come from Bangalore recently and the installation of burn unit related to the process of destroying the virus was also completed on Thursday.
Dr. Garg informed that King George’s Medical University (KGMU) has also been informed about the lab’s preparation and their instructions are awaited according to which the samples from Mathura and outer districts will be tested in this lab. This lab will also be connected to the other 19 labs in the state. With the start of the lab, the speed of corona infection in western Uttar Pradesh will be controlled.
He told that trial run will start in it from Monday. In order to standardize the testing lab, some samples will be tested first. The lab will be standardized by testing the samples that come with the testing kit and also testing one or two non-coronaviruses.
The Dean said that Dr. Rashmi Singh, Professor and Head, Department of Microbiology of Deendayal Veterinary University, has been made the nodal officer for the operation of the lab and he will be assisted by Dr. Vinod Kumar Singh, Assistant Professor of the same department.
They said that Dr. Devesh Sharma and Vijaypal Singh of KD Medical College have also been hired to assist in this task. These four have also been trained to operate labs and a dozen others from Mathura and outside will also be trained in Mathura to run the lab smoothly. This laboratory will prove to be a milestone in the university’s development.
