GRAMPET Group continues the campaign launched in May and donates one of the 10 COVID-19 testing devices to a children’s hospital, respectively to the Victor Gomoiu Children’s Clinical Hospital in Bucharest, together with 1,000 testing kits.
The state-of-the-art eCL8000-Automated ECL Immunoassay Analyzer, which has a processing speed of 86 tests per hour and can generate results in 18 minutes, was installed and calibrated in the hospital laboratory this morning.
A similar donation reached the National Institute of Infectious Diseases Prof. Dr. Matei Balş a month ago.
“From the beginning of the medical crisis, we understood that mass testing was the only way we can control the spread of this virus, at least until we have a vaccine,” says Gruia Stoica, President of the GRAMPET Group. “We purchased 10 such devices certified by the Chinese Ministry of Health, along with 10,000 testing kits, which we began to distribute in the centres where we operate nationwide. This time, we turned our attention to a children’s hospital, as there are more and more signals at international level that this virus is not as harmless to children as it was initially thought, on the contrary.”
So far, the GRAMPET Group has donated an eCL8000-Automated ECL Immunoassay Analyzer and 1,000 testing kit each to the Public Health Directorates of Deva, Iași and Galați, to the County Emergency Clinical Hospitals from Craiova and Constanța, as well as to the Faculty of Medicine within the University of Debrecen – Hungary. Currently, the Group is considering which other areas in Romania need such a device most, in order to pursue with the next two donations.
At the same time, the GRAMPET Group has donated 9,000 protective masks to the National Museum of Art and the Bucharest Ambulance Service.
