On 5th March 2024, Laboratory Scientists from the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) and the National Public Health Laboratory (NPHL) embarked on a transformative journey into the world of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology using Illumina Respiratory Pathogen ID/AMR (RPIP) panel.
Facilitated by leading experts from Sciex/ Illumina, this specialized training aimed to equip our dedicated laboratory scientists with cutting-edge technology to combat Acute Respiratory Pathogens with unprecedented precision and speed.
Under the umbrella of partnership between NIMR, NPHL, the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this initiative symbolizes a collective commitment to stay ahead of emerging health threats and safeguard public well-being.
Through the lens of collaboration and innovation, our scientists are poised to unlock new insights, accelerate diagnostics, and fortify efforts against respiratory diseases. Together, we are pioneering a brighter, healthier future for all.
