Laboratory Development

The new Laboratory Blood bank space will accommodate two newly commissioned Blood Group analysers designed to provide a fully automated, walk away system for ABO Rh D grouping, Antibody screening and identification, Direct coombs testing, Antigen typing and Compatibility testing. The new Microbiology Laboratory will be designed to accommodate the increased molecular testing developments which have occurred over the past two years while also accommodating the traditional Microbiology testing equipment and techniques.

The €6.75million development of this 1,200 sq.m. state of the art Laboratory and supporting accommodation is part of an overall €12.75million investment into UHK which includes significant investment into an additional obstetrics theatre, upgrade and extension to the Oncology Ward, additional accommodation in the orthopaedic ward, and enhancement to the maternity-birthing, triage assessment, and antenatal wards.
