New Delhi, April 16 (IANS) To overcome the time delays in the swift delivery of personal protective equipment (PPE) kits and masks, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has shifted its testing facility from Gwalior to Delhi.
The facility set at the Defence Research Development Establishment (DRDE), Gwalior, has been shifted to the Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (INMAS) in Delhi, the DRDO stated.
The INMAS is another premier Life Science Laboratory of DRDO. The facility at INMAS is fully operational for testing and evaluation of body suits and masks.
“More than 10 batches of these items have already been tested at the laboratory,” the DRDO said in a statement.
The DRDE, Gwalior, which has been at the forefront in fighting Covid-19, has now been tasked to confirm the label claims of masks and body suits received by HLL Lifecare Limited from foreign countries, before they are distributed to various agencies.
