(ECNS) -- A test kit for the Ebola virus developed by China's Academy of Military Medical Sciences has received approval for mass production and will be made by a firm in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, the People's Daily reported Thursday morning.

Researchers have adopted a "compound probe," a technology with independent intellectual property rights over the nucleic acid detection kit. They have developed test kits for H1N1, H7N9 and NDM-1 viruses using the technology.

The test kit for Ebola will be produced by Shenzhen Puruikang Biotech Co., Ltd.

Experts said early diagnosis is important for controlling infection by the deadly virus, as there has been no preventive vaccination or effective drug yet.
