Mylab Discovery Solutions launches India’s first machine to automate manual processes of molecular diagnostic tests


Pune-based molecular diagnostics company, Mylab Discovery Solutions has launched ‘Compact XL’ – India’s first machine to automate the manual processes of molecular diagnostic tests such as RT-PCR tests for Covid-19.

Compact XL is a compact bench-top machine that will automate lab processes from sample handling to preparing RT-PCR ready tubes. It is a cartridge-based machine and can test multiple samples at the same time. It can be used for a wide range of RNA/DNA-based tests including Covid-19 RT-PCR tests. The machine can take input of various sample types such as plasma, tissue, sputum and swab.

Adar Poonawalla, CEO of the Serum Institute of India (SII), who unveiled the machine, said that Scientific and technological breakthroughs are driving our fight against Covid-19. This revolutionary product, with multiple patents already filed, will be a giant leap in making testing accessible. It will eliminate traditional barriers to the adoption of molecular diagnostics at labs and address any potential demand-supply gaps of highly skilled technicians for testing.

Abhijeet Pawar, Chairman, AP Globale, said that an important lesson Covid has taught us, to be self-reliant. He said, their focus is to drive social change through innovation.
