Castrol has supported a Central Hospital in Bucharest with a donation, to help increase covid-19 testing capacity.
Castrol, one of the largest global manufacturers of lubricants, has donated funds to the Central Military Emergency University Hospital “Dr. Carol Davila” in Bucharest, allowing it to help increase capacity to detect COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in patients.
The donation has been used to purchase a high-capacity RT-PCR automatic open system machine and PCR consumable kits, used for COVID-19 testing.
This equipment will help increase testing capacity in the medical analysis laboratory at the hospital, by providing eight independent testing modules that can analyze samples in less than two hours.
