The committee established by the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) authorities will begin on Monday the performance trial of the Covid-19 test kit for Gonoshasthaya Kendra.

Gonoshasthaya Kendra Founder and Trustee Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury confirmed the news that BSMMU had requested 200 kits from them.

The BSMMU will conduct a Rapid Dot Blot trial on 400 samples. The DGDA had allowed Gonoshasthaya Kendra to have their kits tested independently by the BSMMU earlier on April 30.

On May 2, BSMMU formed a committee headed by Professor Dr Shahina Tabassum, of its virology department.
