Syngene International has received the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) approval on ELISafe 19, an IgG based ELISA test kit for COVID-19.
Syngene has collaborated with HiMedia Laboratories, a bioscience company, to manufacture ELISafe 19.

Syngene developed the IgG based ELISA at its research facility in Bengaluru and partnered with HiMedia to manufacture and commercialise the product. HiMedia is seeking approval from the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) and will launch the kits once approval is in place.
