Mylab Discovery Solutions, a biotechnology company, is one of four businesses that have contacted the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) about developing monkeypox virus testing and diagnostic kits. Mylab is the business that introduced the first locally produced RT-PCR diagnostic kit for COVID-19 in India. Along with three other biotechnology firms, the biotech company had also approached the ICMR about developing vaccinations for monkeypox. Early in August, the ICMR requested expressions of interest (EOIs) from biotechnology and vaccine development firms for a monkeypox vaccine. Hasmukh Rawal, managing director and promoter of Mylab, has confirmed the business's proposal to create the monkeypox diagnostic testing kit. Numerous nations, including the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, and India, are searching for vaccinations to combat the disease as a result of the extraordinary spread of the monkeypox virus outside of endemic regions. At least nine confirmed cases of monkeypox and one fatality have been reported from India.
