New corona testing machine installed at AMU medical college

Aligarh, April 22 (IANS) A new testing machine for Covid-19 has been given to the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College of the Aligarh Muslim University by the Uttar Pradesh government.

It would now be possible to test 200 samples daily. The machine costs Rs 15 lakh.

AMU Vice-Chancellor Prof Tariq Mansoor said that the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital of AMU is one of the accredited centres for testing COVID-19. "With the coordinated efforts of the district administration including Commissioner, the District Magistrate, the Chief Development Officer, and Chief Medical Officer, JNMCH has got another RT-PCR testing machine," he said.

Thanking the state government, he said it would go a long way in curbing the spread of COVID-19, adding that the AMU and its affiliate institutions are in the forefront in the fight against COVID-19.

Prof Shahid Siddiqui (Principal, JNMCH) noted that the arrival of the new machine would "bolster our ability to test as many as 200 samples a day".

"More than 3,000 free tests of COVID-19 samples have been conducted so far at JNMCH, and the new machine will surely boost our capacity to dispose of more samples of COVID-19", he said.
