State Trading Organization (STO) gifts modern machine to the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) laboratory, which would speed up the services greatly.
The state-run hospital spokesperson said that the machine specializes in blood and urine investigations and will bring a lot of progress to laboratory services. They noted that results of investigations can be issued a lot faster once they start using the machine.
During a ceremony held senior Consultant for Pathology Milza said that this machine will take up a lot of the manual work done by staff. She added that reports for tests such as blood cultures which usually take up to seven days will no longer take as much time.
