With the additional help, the facility will be able to triple its capacity and is expected to be able to process nearly 800 tests a day. The location will offer PCR tests free of charge.
An investment from the state in a high-capacity instrument at the Dayton Children’s south testing site will allow the facility to process up to 5,000 PCR tests a day, allowing lab staff to focus on running more tests.
