The Huo-Yan Laboratory, a highly automated novel coronavirus nucleic acid testing facility, was put into use in Yunyan district, Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, on Sept 11.

It is the first Huo-Yan Laboratory in Guiyang.

The laboratory consists of three air film chamber laboratories and two square-cabin laboratories.

The three air film chamber laboratories are divided into three areas: a reagent preparation chamber, a reagent extraction chamber and an amplification chamber. They are equipped with many high-end instruments to improve nucleic acid testing capabilities.

Two square-cabin laboratories are in an integrated automated nucleic acid testing form, which does not require site decoration or installation.

The whole laboratory has a daily nucleic acid detection capacity of 36,000 single tubes, which can meet the nucleic acid detection requirements of about 720,000 people.

It will work 24 hours a day and will further enhance the nucleic acid detection capabilities of Guiyang.
