The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has opened a smart biochemistry lab at Dubai Hospital. The lab utilizes the best technologies and AI solutions without human intervention, enabling it to conduct and analyze two million samples a year.
The lab is considered the first of its kind in the country and the latest in the region as it is from the E801 generation, which increases the capacity of one of its machines to be able to test 2,000 samples of liver, kidney and heart functions in less than one hour. The lab can also complete 300 samples through its advanced tumor devices within the same period.
The DHA aims to establish the new lab as a medical, scientific and research reference center for education and training purposes at the level of country and region. This is possible as the lab is equipped with the latest equipment and experienced and skilled doctors and specialists, which enables it to analyze some samples and extract their results in less than a minute. The lab, which is located in Dubai Hospital, includes high-speed and highly precise equipment and technologies that conduct different types of tests that include vital functions of the kidneys, heart, liver, tumor markers, hormones, brain and spinal fluids.
The center, which will function 24/7, will in its first phase cater to Dubai Hospital and all DHA facilities with plans to include the private sector in the country and region.
