Chandigarh March 30, 2020: In these tough and testing times of Corona pandemic, Panjab
University Chandigarh has offered its services to Chandigarh Administration Health Services with testing the Covid-19 samples, if and whenever the services are required.
The Department of Microbiology and the Department of Biotechnology of PU
can do so as they have the requisite expertise for testing the samples
by RT-PCR instrument, the BSL-2 (Biological Safety Level-2) laboratory
with negative pressure (especially required for testing such samples)
and volunteer manpower in the form of trained research scholars.
The administration, in turn, has to provide the standard kits and PPE
