Thammasat University has offered research facility testing in Allied Health Sciences so as to help medical clinic work, conveying exact and quick outcomes.

The University is giving assets to help during the national emergency due to COVID-19 and has opened research center testing for COVID-19 supporting Thammasat University Hospital and neighboring medical clinics. It can give brings about 6 hours.

Assoc.Prof.Dr.Pailawan Satthanon, Director of the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, uncovers that because of the flare-up of COVID-19 transmission, Thammasat University, as a people’s college, has put all information and assets to help the legislature. One of our backings is the atomic conclusion research facility, Healthcare Service Center, Faculty of Allied Health Sciences that can be utilized to test COVID-19 and convey brings about 6 hours. The research center is utilized to help Thammasat University Hospital and other close by clinics.

“Initially, Thammasat University Hospital and different emergency clinics need to send examples to the focal area which is the Department of Medical Sciences to test. It sits around idly as we need to line up for the testing and trust that the outcome will be sent back to the clinic. Consequently, it may take as long as one day. Therefore, the research center at the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences offers accommodation to the region in Rangsit-Pathum Thani.” said Assoc.Prof.Dr.Pailawan.

The quality and standard of the research facility at the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences is in the nation’s top class. The research center has been confirmed its ability by the Department of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Public Health to test for COVID-19. Along these lines, if Thammasat University Hospital and different clinics send in the examples, the outcome will be prepared in a brief timeframe. At the point when we can realize the test outcome quick, the treatment’s latent capacity will be better. In the present, we just step through an exam on examples sent by medical clinics; there is no guideline for singular

assistance tests.

Asst.Prof.Dr.Jeerapong Tanongsaksrikul, Assistant Director of Administration and Head of the atomic conclusion research facility, says that the lab has been utilized for Tuberculosis (TB) testing. Tuberculosis malady is more genuine than COVID-19, thusly, we can be guaranteed of the research facility’s norm and potential. Asst.Prof.Dr.Jeerapong additionally says that the answer for infection testing that the research center uses is profoundly precise. It tends to be utilized to test the infection extremely quick and just require 3 qualities in a single cylinder so as to decrease botches.

“We are instructive establishments. The vast majority in the research center are educators and clinical lab researchers that are knowledgeable about testing. Additionally, we are respected by Prof.Ph.D.Yong Phoovorawan, an Expert in CLinic Virology in Thailand, to help exhort us. There are likewise specialists from the biosafety affiliation guaranteeing the security. Along these lines, this is our trust in working at Thammasat’s research center.” said Asst.Prof.Dr.Jeerapong.

Asst.Prof.Dr.Jeerapong says that Thammasat’s research facility will keep up negative pneumatic force that can be discovered uniquely in instructive foundations and enormous medical clinics. Everything in the lab will be sifted by the significant level filtration that can channel the littlest particles. Consequently, working in this research facility, there would be no defilement spilling out of the room. In the main stage, the research center can lead tests for 40-50 examples for every day.

Assoc.Prof.Gasinee Witoonchart, Director of Thammasat University, says that Thammasat is fit for performing COVID-19 testing by utilizing Realtime RT-PCR to recognize the hereditary material of the infection.
