The President presented the Neokit "-Covid-19 that will allow to obtain results in less than 2 hours
...As reported in a statement, the first 10,000 tests will be produced over the next 10 days, and in the short term 100,000 tests could be produced per week...

The so-called NEOKIT-COVID-19, manufactured by the Cassará laboratory, allows the results to be obtained in less than 1 hour and 15 minutes with similar sensitivity as current PCR techniques and has already been approved by ANMAT. A first batch of 10,000 kits will be available next week and 150,000 devices are expected within a month.

Not doubting you. The test cost isn't showing in the news reports. Any leads to seeing/reading test cost for NEOKIT-COVID-19?

....The differences between the tests:
The private clinics and laboratories consulted by LA NACION indicated that the value of the antibody tests is between 3,000 and 4,000 pesos. Regarding PCR exams, the cost depends on whether the patient requires it by referral for coverage (about 4,000 pesos) or privately (between 6,000 and 8,000 pesos).
