The Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) has developed an indigenous RT-PCR diagnostic kit, called 'Om', for testing the new Omicron variant of Covid-19.

At present, two more such kits developed by private players are available in the market. 'Om' is likely to be launched in the second week of February, after it receives a nod from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
