The Covid-19 crisis has underlined the need for easily accessible, prompt, and flawless RT-PCR testing to screen for the disease. Agam Diagnostics is one of the leading testing centres accredited by the ICMR, NABL, State Goverment and Central Government of India. Our laboratory is powered by state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and astute medical acumen to diagnose Covid-19.
At Agam diagnostics, all Covid-19 RT-PCR test samples are collected by our highly trained phlebotomists under extremely safe and hygienic conditions. Sample collections are done only under a doctor's prescription. In addition to RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction) test, rapid antigen tests can also be used to detect Covid-19.
We do all kind of infectious markers HIV-1, HIV-2, HbsAg, HCV, HPV, TB-MDR, H1N1, H3N2. Also we do all cancer marker panel.
A swab is used to collect respiratory material from the nose. We use both nasal swabs and nasopharyngeal swabs to collect samples. After collection, the swab is safely sealed in a tube and sent to our laboratory for testing.
Our lab technologists extract and isolate genetic material, including that of other viruses that maybe present in the sample.
In the final PCR step, we use special chemicals and a thermal cycler to make millions of copies of the bacterial, fungi, virus genetic material (DNA /RNA). If the sample contains the infectious organism, the device alerts our technologists, who will also use special software to interpret the result.
