One of the significant items purchased by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation as a part of its COVID-19 Relief Initiative is coronavirus diagnostic and testing equipment. The charity bought not only PPE for frontline medical staff but also invested over PLN 10 500 000 (EUR 2 300 000) in state of the art laboratory equipment for COVID-19 testing facilities. Coronavirus diagnostic laboratories based in three major Polish cities: Warsaw, Łodź, and Poznań, received devices which will allow them to test approximately 2 304 samples per day. 

 

 

The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity bought high-throughput automated sample preparation systems, which can be used to prepare samples for coronavirus testing, kits for RNA DNA extraction, U-shaped bottom microplates, skirted PCR microplates, and coronavirus diagnostics kits. These devices will greatly raise the effectiveness, and speed of the diagnostics and, what is crucial for our charity, improve the safety of the staff working at the laboratories.
