Mediflex Laboratories in Male’ has announced a significant reduction in the rate for COVID-19 PCR tests.
Mediflex provides PCR tests using equipment supplied by Thermo Fisher Scientific – a leading global supplier of scientific instruments, reagents, consumables, and software.
Mediflex, which previously offered COVID-19 PCR tests for MVR 1,000, has reduced the rate to MVR 700.
“We made the decision to reduce our rate in light of the recent surge in COVID infections, to make it more convenient for the people in Male’ to get tested. Compared to other market rates, our laboratory now offers the lowest rate for PCR tests,” said Mediflex’s chairman Ahmed Haikal.
Mediflex said that in addition to using machines from Thermo Fisher Scientific, the test kits used by the lab are approved by the United States Food and Drug Authority and World Health Organization (WHO).
