(INEWS)The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) has announced a significant advancement in its Pathology Department with the recent acquisition of a state-of-the-art microtome machine and an advanced auto tissue processor.
These two innovative technologies have allowed the department to revolutionize sample processing, reducing the turnaround time from over thirty (30) days to an impressive seven (7) days.
According to the GPHC in a statement today, these two cutting-edge additions represent a remarkable leap in the efficiency and accuracy of sample processing, enabling its esteemed team of Pathologists to provide rapid and precise diagnoses.
