New Indian Express reports that Regional Medical Research Center in Bhubaneswar will now have facility for diagnosis of viral infections. Following are some excerptss from that report.
Giving a much-needed boost to viral diseases surveillance in Orissa, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has identified Regional Medical Research Centre (RMRC) here as one of its diagnostic centres. …
Keeping in view the overburdened NIV, the council decided to establish facilities for diagnosis of viral infections at centres having expertise in molecular biology and bio-technology.
The expert group of the council had met recently to discuss establishment of new virology laboratories in the country and identified three such categories of labs as part of the network. RMRC, it said, falls in the first category of labs basing on its strategic location in outbreak-prone areas.
ICMR will build capacity of RMRC as part of this new networking.
