Coronavirus: RMC launces second PCR lab

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


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


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.
