According to Amirkabir University of Technology, Amir Abbas Esmaeilzadeh, the manager of  '' Salamat Yar Behesht Dayan'' knowledge-based company said, '' this company has started its activity concerning cancer diagnosis and treatment since 2008. With continuous studies, we have been able to design a molecular kit with the method of real-time PCR which can identify the virus in the patient's mucus with the least time and the least amount of virus''.
The manager of the company expressed, '' the accuracy of kits designed in this company is between 2.5 to 10 times more than imported kits. Development of molecular kits in this company is based on the method of LAMP, and the test can be done in non-specialized laboratories; because the saliva is entered into the kit and after heating up for one hour, color change can help identify whether COVID-19 is positive or negative in the individual''.
