Dear [first_name],

Researchers at IIT-KGP have come up with a portable rapid diagnostic device for COVID-19 testing. In a press statement, IIT Kharagpur said: "This first-of-its-kind device will bring the testing for COVID-19 out from the walls of expensive laboratories and RT-PCR [reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction] machines and enable testing at affordable costs for the under-served community across the world." You can read more about this ground-breaking development in the article found in the below newsletter.
