COVID-19 SUPPORT

Intensive Care Units, GOSH
March 2020

£45,000
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.
