Siemens develops COVID-19 mobile testing units with rapid test lab
The COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on healthcare systems globally, including the availability of rapid and accurate testing. Siemens Smart Infrastructure has teamed up with Auto-Info, a Thai automation specialist in the Life Science industry, to jointly develop a modular COVID-19 examination unit. The mobile lab structure and system have been designed to avoid contamination among patients or from patients to medical staff by using the Climatix IC platform, a flexible and scalable advanced HVAC control solution from Siemens.
The mobile lab is an ideal solution for borders, airports and hospitals – all important checkpoints to detect infections with the virus.
The systems will initially be delivered to healthcare and industrial customers in Thailand, with the aim of expanding into Southeast Asia.
