Intensive Care Units, GOSH
March 2020

Fully funded

In March 2020, the Chloe Mansfield Fund purchased two pieces of equipment to support the intensive care units at GOSH in the rapid, on-site testing of COVID-19.

The DiagCORE machine enabled the hospital to run high volume, rapid testing of COVID-19, with results in a couple of hours.

The ABI PCR analyser allowed the hospital to achieve a more comprehensive testing of the virus, even at low levels of infection, increasing the hospital’s capability from 6-12 tests a day to over 100.

In addition to testing equipment, Chloe’s Fund also helped to provide additional PPE for the intensive care staff, during a period of acute shortage.

A huge thanks to our donors and supporters for helping to make this happen.
