The ALAB Molecular Biology Laboratory, located in Puerto Montt, will now be used exclusively for coronavirus tests – available to the health and military authorities in charge of the Los Lagos Region.
“The initiative makes this laboratory available to the country – with trained personnel and world-class research teams – to strengthen diagnostic capacity in regions IX, X, XI and XII of our country. The ALAB AquaChile Laboratory has the highest technology for carrying out viral disease detection tests,” it wrote.
“The adaptations are already being made and the protocols are being processed so that starting next Monday, March 30, our ALAB AquaChile Laboratory can perform and process coronavirus tests,” said AquaChile ALAB manager Alexis Martínez. ■
