The Gene Lab- Clinical Diagnostic Lab by Clevergene has opened a cutting-edge COVID-19 RT-PCR testing facility in Bengaluru. The ICMR approved lab is deploying automated RNA extraction and high-throughput RT-PCR to deliver up to 3000 tests in a single day.
Patients can walk-in directly to The Gene Lab’s sample collection facility at Indiranagar alongside the option of booking a home collection via www.thegenelab.com.
The company has presently amplified its home collection network across the city of Bengaluru to address the burgeoning demand in wake of the lethal second wave of the mutated virus. In spite of the colossal surge in daily cases, the company has managed to achieve a 24 hours turn round time for over 95% of the samples received in their lab.

“We have launched a fully-equipped COVID-19 RT-PCR testing facility in Bengaluru to accelerate the testing capacity in the country. By deploying automated RNA extraction and high-throughput RT-PCR to deliver more than 3000 tests on a daily basis, we are confident that we can intensify the identification and isolation process of prospective careers. We want to assure all the citizens of the country that as the leading emissaries of the scientific community, we are warranting the best of technology and genomic innovation to curtail the spread of this virus and sooner or later humanity will emerge triumphant in this war against the virus.”
