The mobile test laboratory from Waldner is a turnkey, self-contained system that requires only electricity, water supply and a place to set up. Even though the current focus is on SARS-CoV-2 tests, the system is a fully functional microbiological (virological, bacteriological and diagnostic) laboratory in a very small space, for example for genetic identification and examinations, molecular biological identification tests and many other diagnostic methods.
The laboratory is fully equipped with the necessary infrastructure and automated high-tech diagnostic tools. Our solution is based on standard laboratory equipment, which achieves an optimal cost-benefit ratio, thus reducing dependence on expensive manufacturer-specific consumables. Waldner can support the use of trained laboratory technicians through on-site training.
A quick to install, efficient and sustainable laboratory according to WHO / CDC guidelines for the SARS-CoV-2 test. Ideally to supplement a hospital (e.g. in the hospital parking lot) with integration into its waste management system, but can also be implemented for any other location.
Due to the high volume of samples and material in the mobile SARS CoV-2 diagnostic laboratory, a central, upstream area is used for sample and material logistics for collection and temporary storage. Only then do the samples enter the preparation (extraction) area via an airlock, where they are opened under BSL-2 safety criteria and prepared for the actual analysis. Afterwards, a maximum of four rRT-PCR devices with a test capacity of approx. 45 tests per hour each are available in the diagnostics department. In this way, a high test capacity is achieved in a very small space.
Dimensions: 6 m x 6 m x 3 m
Weight: approx. 8 t
(for a total of 2 containers)
„We need to significantly ramp up not only the number of tests, but the capacity to perform them.“
