PROGRESS manufacturing baby food under the FrutoNyanya brand has purchased and donated a PCR workstation by KingFisher Flex to the Skin & Venereal Disease Center in the Lipetsk Region.
The workstation makes the processing of samples as automatic as possible. It takes only 15-30 minutes to release and purify 96 samples. This approach not only multiplies productivity of the laboratory, but also minimizes the erroneous results caused by the human factor.
“First of all, PROGRESS stands for people. And we are accountable for their health. We know very well that the PCR tests are the only way to understand whether a person is sick with coronavirus or has a common ARVI. The sooner the tests results are available, the better for everyone. Lipetsk is our home region, so PROGRESS decided to contribute to the fight against the pandemic and donate this state-of-the-art workstation to automate the PCR testing in one of the regional laboratories,” Natalia Medunova, the Company’s CEO, comments.
“Autumn, the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic – the importance of timely COVID-19 testing can’t be overestimated in this context. We are truly grateful to PROGRESS. Our productivity increased 1.5-2 times, which is extremely important in today’s environment,” admits Lubov Sukhova, Chief Medical Officer at the Skin & Venereal Diseases Center, Honored Physician of the Russian Federation and Chief Freelance Specialist at the Skin, Venereal Diseases & Cosmetology Department for the Lipetsk Region.
