The Doctors' Hospital sets up PCR laboratory in Western Visayas
TDHI initiated the project in collaboration with Mount Grace Hospitals, Inc. and Unilab, Inc. (UNILAB) to help expand the country’s PCR-based testing capability in the ongoing battle against COVID-19. The PCR Biolab will be located at the parking area of the hospital. It will be housed in a shipping container van with the help from ENDEC, Inc., a company engaged in engineering and construction management. This design has earned the laboratory the distinction of being the first of its kind in the country. Despite its uncommon design, quality and safety have not been compromised. The Biolab is compliant with the safety standards of a Biosafety Level 2 Laboratory (BSL2).
