11 May DOH-10 To Set Up COVID-19 Lab Testing In Cagayan de Oro This Week
Mga higala! The Department of Health in Region 10 (DOH-10) is set to conduct a dry run of their COVID-19 laboratory tests this week, using the Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) machine donated by the city government!
This equipment is now being prepared at the COVID-19 facility in the Tuberculosis Reference Center and DOH Regional Office in Barangay Carmen.
This polymerase chain reaction machine can perform around 100 tests per day and is similar to what is being used right now at the Southern Mindanao Medical Center (SPMC) in Davao City.
BTW, the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) is also planning to conduct its own COVID-19 tests using its Gene Xpert unit, while the city is ordering another RT-PCR machine.
