RMC launches second PCR lab

Rajshahi Medical College Hospital has launched its second Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing lab to detect COVID-19 infection.

“The lab was formally inaugurated in the afternoon by testing 40 samples,” said RMCH deputy director Saiful Ferdous, reports UNB.

He said the lab has started its journey with a PCR machine which has the capacity to test 94 samples simultaneously.

Given the current situation, he said they have a plan to test 188 samples in two shifts a day.

On April 1, the RMCH’s first corona sample testing lab was set up at its Virology Department.
