The Philippine Genome Center of the University of the Philippines was tasked to handle the sequencing of COVID-19 samples in coordination with the health workers from UP Manila National Institutes of Health, to provide our scientists with crucial scientific information to mitigate the spread of the disease.

In our effort to continually protect the PGC skeletal workforce during this national health emergency, we are accepting Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations, such as:

  • N95 masks
  • Surgical masks
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Disposable impermeable laboratory gowns and caps
  • Face shields
  • Shoe covers

These donations in kind will be used to replenish our supplies and will be shared to the NIH, PGH, and UP Health Service. Contact Ms. Katie Raymundo via 09190006087 (Smart) or send an email to [email protected] for inquiries and to coordinate donations.

The Philippine Genome Center extends its gratitude to the community’s continuous support in addressing the current national health emergency.
