On 5 of September, at 11.00, the transfer of the immunological analyzer "Arkitekt i1000 SR" by Abbott to the Ministry of Defense will take place. The device was purchased for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by the international NGO "International Institute for HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" within the framework of the PEPFAR project.
The transfer of the equipment will take place in the laboratory department of the Blood Center of the National Military Medical Clinical Center “Main Military Clinical Hospital” (18 Hospitalna str., Kyiv).
Representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, LTC Charles Hill (Bilateral Affairs Officel), Mr. James Cahill (Medical Advisor, Office of Defense Cooperation), William B. Taylor (Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. of the United States Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine), Mrs. Alice Wolfram (PEPFAR Embassy Interagency Coordinator) were invited to participate in the event.
The recent acquisition of the immunological analyzer "Arkitekt i1000 SR" by Abbott is the latest addition to a reform process. The equipment is already installed and operational. In addition, the manufacturer provided training for professionals who are now working with this unit.
The device is much easier to operate and allows faster, cheaper and more likely to detect hemocontact pathogens than previous manual tests "ELISA" antibodies. Thus, in the future, the number of uncertain and false-positive results will decrease significantly. This detection of contaminated blood is a critical component of all blood safety programs.
We invite the media to join the event. Prior accreditation is MANDATORY. For participation and accreditation please call +38 044 569 28 52. Contact person Dobroskok Larysa, project coordinator.
