CoviGen-LAMP was developed by specialists from the Central Research Institute of Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Troops (RCBZ) and the Sintol Research and Production Company. It is a real-time loop isothermal amplification kit for detecting the SARS-CoV-2 RNA virus and can detect coronavirus in clinical specimens in just thirty minutes.

In the near future, the specialists will return to the points of permanent deployment and share the experience gained with their colleagues.
