Molecular lab to be functional in Yamunanagar soon

Tribune News Service
Yamunanagar, October 7

To augment Covid testing facilities, a new molecular laboratory is being set up at the Mukand Lal District Civil Hospital, Yamunanagar. The lab is likely to become functional next week.

DC Mukul Kumar, along with Civil Surgeon Dr Vijay Dahiya, visited the laboratory on Tuesday and inspected the ongoing work there. Dahiya said the lab would be equipped with RT-PCR (real-time polymerase chain reaction), and Covid tests would be undertaken there.

"Initially, we will be capable of testing 100-200 samples per day. Later, 800-1,000 Covid samples will be examined here every day," said Dr Dahiya.

He said they had to send the samples for testing to Karnal and other places, but once the molecular laboratory became functional, they would be able to test Covid samples in Yamunanagar.
