Help PGC conduct COVID-19 testing
The Philippine Genome Center’s Clinical Genomics Laboratory (CGL) is an accredited COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) testing facility by the Department of Health (DOH) to conduct testing by Real-Time PCR.
The reconfiguration of the PGC labs and its completion of the five (5) stages of lab capacities accreditation enabled the genome center to receive its certification from the DOH and RITM.
PGC has also took part in the kit validation and field testing of the locally-developed GenAmplify rRT-PCR Detection Kit. In addition, through its Core Facility for Bioinformatics, PGC released via GISAID database six (6) viral genome sequences of the SARS-CoV-2 from COVID-19 cases between March 22-28, 2020 in Metro Manila.
PGC is open to much-needed support to continuously facilitate its operations for COVID-19 testing.
We thank our donors for enabling the genome center provide its services to the public.
