KARNALI: A PCR machine installed at the Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS) has not been used due to the lack of testing kits.

He said required human resources have been readied to operate the machine adding that they will start the testing once they get the kits.

Academy registrar Bishwaraj Kafle informed that the machine has the capacity of testing 96 samples at a time informing that 200 kits had arrived in Surkhet on the initiation of Academy Vice Chancellor Dr Paras Kumar Acharya.
