Kidapawan’s P35-M biomolecular lab is now functioning.

North Cotabato’s KIDAPAWAN CITY – As a preventative move against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections, the municipal government announced the launch of a freshly built PHP35.4 million biomolecular laboratory here on Thursday.

Dr. Aristides Concepcion-Tan, Director of the Department of Health – Soccsksargen (DOH-12), personally examined and granted the go-ahead to open the center earlier this week, according to Mayor Joseph Evangelista.

The mayor stated, “The laboratory will expedite the detection and confirmation of Covid-19 infections from specimen samples.”

The local government unit paid PPH20 million for the building structure and another PHP5.4 million for the facilities.

The Energy Development Corporation, on the other hand, which operates a geothermal power plant in Barangay Ilomavis here, has spent PHP10 million on laboratory equipment for the facility.

Evangelista remarked, “The institution can conduct Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) analysis for patients suspected of Covid-19 infection from this city and the surrounding regions.”

Personnel who attended training for the facility’s operation received a perfect score, according to the DOH-12, which provided as the basis for the facility’s license to operate being approved.

The biomolecular laboratory is the city’s second Covid-19 emergency response facility this month.

The city also obtained a PHP10-million temporary treatment monitoring facility from the Office of Civil Defense on February 11.

Both projects were constructed on land owned by the city in Barangay Nuangan.
