Singamas Container Holdings, a leading manufacturer of containers and provider of logistics services, has delivered a mobile polymerase chain reaction (PCR) container laboratory for COVID-19 testing to the Shanghai Pudong Airport on 27 July 2020.

The mobile PCR laboratory was developed by Singamas’ in-house research and development team located in Shanghai, together with experts from the renowned Chinese Academy of Sciences and China Customs.

This laboratory can handle a maximum of 1,500 specimens a day. It consists of three functional rooms, including the reagent preparation room, specimen processing room and PCR test room. Arrival testing will commence this week.

“We are very excited about the development of the mobile PCR laboratory for the Shanghai Pudong Airport, and would like to thank the local government for entrusting us with this important responsibility for the city. With the support of our dedicated R&D team, quality manufacturing skills, as well as the trust and confidence of our customers, we have already developed over 1,000 types of specialised products to date,” said Teo Siong Seng, Chairman of Singamas.

Apart from specialised transportation-focused containers, the engineers have been developing containers for use in a wide range of areas including but not limited to power generation; energy storage; data centres; housing and hotel; pressurised ex-proof; breeding and farming; as well as for scientific and medical applications. — Construction+ Online
