What would cost more than K10,000 in bills outside of Papua New Guinea, this pathology laboratory abroad is only K280 in country – a huge saving for all Papua New Guineans.
This K3 million pathology laboratory, first of its kind for PNG opened for the public in the nation’s capital last year.
This is the IMP pathology laboratory will carry out tests for kidney function, cardiovascular risks, liver function, infectious diseases, thyroid screening, diabetes screening and urine analysis, which have never been done in the country.
Located at the Taurama Foodland area, these state of the art and medically equipped laboratory received its accredited Australian-standard certificates which now allows it full operation.
Director Martin Poh said Papua New Guineans no longer need to travel overseas as the service is now available in the country.
He said having worked in PNG for a very long time and involved in the health sector, it has been his dream to be a premier healthcare laboratory services provider to both urban and rural population in PNG.
He said they also have corporate and mobile service which they have already been doing since December last year.
Minister said the lab is crucial for the public and will greatly assist every Papua New Guinean especially at a cheap price of K280 to do these medical tests and know their health status. Post Courier/ PNG Today
