SARS-CoV2 RT PCR TESTING

Recognised by the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR)

Between April and July 2020, 12,331 persons were screened for COVID-19

YRGCARE’s Infectious Diseases laboratory has been recognised by the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) as one of the reference laboratories for COVID-19 testing in Tamil Nadu, under the public private partnership model.

The Molecular Biology division at the YRGCARE Infectious Diseases Laboratory conducts SARS-CoV-2 sample processing, performs invitro, qualitative RT-PCR and data analysis.

The testing is offered at the main clinic at Kilpauk Gardens, Chennai as well as at home.

SUPPORTIVE TESTS

The different divisions of the YRGCARE Infectious Diseases Laboratory have proposed various supportive tests to systematically manage COVID-19.

Biochemistry & Hematology Division has proposed the following supportive tests for individuals with COVID-19: CBC, Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), Ferritin, Procalcitonin, LFT, RFT and Electrolytes

Immunology Division has proposed to do immunological assays to understand the biological and clinical consequences of the immune system hyperactivity and also to suggest appropriate therapeutic options. These assays includeIL6, D-Dimer, C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and other inflammatory markersforindividuals with COVID-19.

Proposed Research Studiesto understand the temporal profile of antigen, antibody and viral RNA in different specimens collected from individuals with different clinical course, ranging from asymptomatic forms to severe manifestations, including the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)
